Gets Protection From "Crazies"

9/19/2011 11:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

ABC believes there are "crazies" out there who have a thing against Chaz Bono ... and network execs have taken precautions by ordering security for Chaz both on and off the "Dancing with the Stars" set.

Sources connected with the show tell TMZ ... there have not been any specific threats against Chaz, but the honchos know there's an element of hatred out there and they feel it's necessary to block Chaz from harm.

As a result, we're told Chaz will get security while he's on the CBS Television City lot -- where the show is filmed -- and off the premises as well.

This isn't the first time DWTS has had to deal with security issues.  The show provided security for Bristol Palin after an anthrax scare last year.

Obama's looking for another backetball player. He wants you Chaz. Here's some clues why you'd be welcome. 1) He never went out with girls until he got married even though he was snorting coke. 2) Likes to hire ballerina boys in big jobs until they get to be mayor of Chicago. 3) He wants gays in the military. 4) He hires schools safety czar to teach our kids about fisting. 5) Is against gay marriage but is rethinking it the heftier his wife gets. 6) Is good friends with Kal Penn who gets rolled in Gay areas in the wee hours of the morning 7) Knows that Scarlett Johansson has a crush on him but would rather play basketball and later shower with Rahm (Ballerina boy), Kal Penn , Reggie Love. 8) first 7 are this is just guess a who took picture of Anthony Weiner in the shower ?? Barney Frank member and promoters of the real ******ger party or a higher ranking member of Jeremiahs “Down Low Club” my guess the latter

Please Check out song called teapartiers I can’t hear you at

Here’s a verse

Doctors are retiring earlier but we’re getting 17000 new IRS
This is how Obama creates health care jobs I guess
For 235 years this country’s been God’s blessing.
Now he’s following Cloward and Piven’s to bankrupt the country I’m guessing
If Obamacare gives Grandma and Grandpa a scare
Think how when their rationed and die earlier we’ll save on healthcare

Hate to break the bad news but she's still a she.
She was born female and will die female. there's no changing that. Altering her plumbing doesn't make her a man. It's called... Chromosomes. The rest is mental disorder. poor guy, at least mommie can afford to take care of him.

I don't hate "HER" for changing to a male. Nor will I ever try to hurt "HER". What I will do is pray for "HER".

Homosexuality is increasingly accepted by the society doesn't change the Bible's clear interdiction of it.

Good luck to you, Chaz, and may God forgive you of your sins.

Many people here are confused and simply ignorant. Gender Dysphoria is a medical disorder and should be treated as such. GD has absolutely NO connection with homosexuality as some here have indicated. Also this is not a religious issue, but the whackos will make it so in the name of their god!

Chaz honestly is doing it the right way. Change your sex and be married to your 'girl'. However, do they always have to press the envelope and go one step further???? Chaz, I grew up with your parents and their very beautiful little girl, wholesome and entertaining..... I know, you do this for $$$ , I mean you have no talent that I see today. You aren't singing like your folks but dragging on their legacy. To bad for you, it won't last, ask 'Ellen'..... oh well you could do a talk show. Your mom I love today, GREAT, Creative, a Voice to remember and never dulling.... your Father, the same, but he moved to politics. Neither ran on their parents coat-tails..... let go and be YOU, whatever that may be. Be an individual,instead of Cher's little girl turned boy......... I do wish you the best but hate to see the legacy you are dragging off of.

Good grief, do you haters have ANY idea of how hard life is for someone transgendered? And for Chaz the challenge is that much more difficult because he has to deal with all of this publicly!

CBS is worried about "crazies" ? And they're telecasting a
show with this fat slob shemale? Get real CBS. And why not quit using freak shows to garner ratings? Jerks.

Why would anyone be offended this person is on an already stupid show? Do people actually believe a sex change would disqualify someone from having a camera pointed at them while they move to a beat? If you believe so, consider the show. It is already dumb. A girl who had a child out of wedlock didn't ruffle anyone's moral feathers (ahem... Palin). People love to fake outrage when it is convenient.

ABC is right and wise to provide this protection, especially in this current-day societal malaise.

What's so sad is that Chastity was a pretty little girl and attractive as a teenager. Any guy would have wanted to be with her.
