According to Pop Culture, trouble began when Erin appeared uninterested when the winner of “DWTS” Season 28 was announced.
While some sent their congratulations to the season’s winner, Hannah Brown, many were more concerned with the look on Erin’s face.

Although fans are unpleased with her reaction, they did love the floral print dress the FOX NFL sideline reporter rocked to the “DWTS” finale.
