The Break the Floor dance company website has since been taken down, including the link to its Ticketmaster page. On the site, the company describes its line-up of talented dancers, including Star’s Monet X Change. It describes Break the Floor as a “pioneering all female dance company in LA that explores the common intersection of dance, gender identity, political and social movements…Women’s voices are boldly brought to life through powerful dance and live sound.”
ESPN analyst Rosalyn Gold-Onwude said in a tweet that she saw a disturbing example of sexual misconduct during her time covering the MTV Movie Awards.
“I witnessed an example of bad behavior I didn’t want to witness, a line used to get in my presence and not out in public,” she wrote. “Still cringe when I think about it, will for as long as I live. I don’t want to see it happen to anyone.”
The segment aired Monday night as part of “Break the Floor’s” weekly Monday night show. It featured “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestants such as Manila Luzon, Monét X Change and Willow Shields.
Kevyn Aucoin, a legal analyst for SiriusXM who was attending the competition as part of CNN’s “Plead the Fifth” series, said she also saw misconduct.
“It happened to me. I saw it happen,” Aucoin said. “A man was in the audience and he did the same thing, and I thought, ‘There’s nothing I can do about this, my situation is so different.’”
