Dancing with the Stars Ireland fans took to Twitter last night to hit back at the judges over Johnny Ward’s low score.
The Love/Hate actor took on a quick step with new partner Ksenia for switch-up week and earned 19 points - a score that fans thought was too low for his impressive moves.

Both Lorraine Barry and Brian Redmond on the judging panel commented that the swing and slow sections of the dance weren't up to par.
Fans of Johnny tweeted their disgust and believe that since the series started he has been continuously ‘undermarked’.
Johnny deserved 8 x 3 =24 undermarked AGAIN!! #DWTSirl

Does Johnny Ward have to twirl on his head backwards? WTH is with the scores? Judges are crazy. #DWTSIRL— Sue Kirwan (@JoshsMomm) February 10, 2019
That mark for Johnny makes absolutely zero sense relative to the dances previous. Would love to know what the story is with these judges clear agenda with the marking 🙄 #DWTSIrl— Sarah Flynn (@sarah_a_flynn) February 10, 2019

Johnny underscored 'again' this week. What does he have to do to get fair comments & marks. #dwtsirl— Nell (@Nell496) February 10, 2019
See the judges have it in for @JohnnyWard7 again this week. His dancing is so good it’s almost professional quality yet he never seems to get the credit or score he deserves! Why?! Really annoying... #DWTSIRL pic.twitter.com/y3ZEeUR9kl— Trish Hegarty (@iniscomm) February 10, 2019
The star also took to the platform after the live shows to thank his fans and admitted that he was “very down” after receiving the scores.
