Fans of The Masked Singer US were horrified that the segment with Rudy Giuliani was aired.
The former New York City mayor, who most recently served as former President Donald Trump ’s lawyer, was revealed as the man behind the Jack in the Box mask on Wednesday's episode of the competition series.
He sang George Thorogood & the Destroyers' hit song Bad to the Bone before he was voted off after a single round.
When Jack in the Box removed his mask, judge Ken Jeong was visibly upset at the reveal before walking off.
Fellow judge Robin Thicke also looks disinterested at the reveal.
However, co-judges Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger joked around with the former politician.
While Jenny and Nicole danced, both Ken and Robin are missing from the judges' panel.
Ken had stood in silence with his arms crossed. And when the credits started rolling, he was heard saying 'I'm done' before leaving.
It had previously been claimed that Robin also left the stage to check on his co-judge, but no footage of him leaving was shown.
Viewers were shocked at the footage and took to social media to question why they aired it.
"Can’t believe they actually aired the Rudy Giuliani episode," one user tweeted out.
Another commented: "Good for @kenjeong for doing the right thing and sad that his cohosts couldn’t do the same."
"Ken Jeong did not smile once when Rudy Giuliani was unmasked. Can't believe they put Rudy on the show," another added.
One user praised Ken and said: "Ken has not smiled ONCE omfg I love him."

"My heart does go out to @kenjeong. I know how you feel. This show should’ve never cast Rudy Giuliani. This is supposed to be a positive show, not a negative show," one said.
Rudy has been a highly controversial person and even defended former US President Donald Trump's claims that the 2020 US presidential election was stolen from him.
He also caused a stir when he unknowingly appeared in Borat 2, where he was shown in a compromising scene with Borat's daughter.
He thought she, actress Maria Valcheva Bakalova, was a journalist for an Eastern European conservative news show.
Mirror have contacted Fox for comment on the situation.
