    Tom Bergeron Mocked Tyra Banks's "Dancing With The Stars" Promo After Getting Fired From The Show

    "This is gold."

    Tom Bergeron may no longer be the host of Dancing With the Stars, but that doesn't mean he isn't keeping up with the show.

    ICYMI: Tom and his cohost Erin Andrews were essentially fired from the show and replaced with Tyra Banks after the network decided to "refresh the format" this summer.

    Tom announced the news in a tweet, writing that he was "grateful" for "an incredible 15-year run and the most unexpected gift of [his] career":

    Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me. It's been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I'm grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?

    Now for the tea you came here for. Recently, DWTS announced which celebs will be competing on the show — including Tiger King's very own Carole Baskin.

    And with that announcement, the show unveiled its promo poster featuring its new host, Ms. Tyra Banks, aka model extraordinaire.

    Well, when Tom saw the poster, he couldn't help but take a dig at it — you know, in a friendly dad kind of way, of course.

    "This Just In: National Association of Lip Safety cautions against applying multiple small mirrors on mouth. One bad chew and it’s 7 years of bad luck 😳😉," he tweeted.

    This may be the classiest shade I've ever seen. Tom has yet to clarify if he was just joking or not. He did, however, update his Twitter bio to read as: Former Co-Host of "Footwork With the Famous."

    Fans seemed to love Tom's trolling:

    Damn, he went there and I love him for that https://t.co/KOE6QRRxA8

    This fan said she's "here for salty Tom":

    I am here for salty Tom. https://t.co/gboGW7JGlb

    Another user tweeted, "This is gold":

    @Tom_Bergeron This is gold. We miss you already.

    This user said his post highlighted why viewers fell in love with him:

    @Tom_Bergeron ❤️Another example of your wit that made us all love you.

    Others called him "the best TV host ever":

    @Tom_Bergeron 🤣🤣 no one will ever come close to your humor & jokes Tom! Truly the Best tv host ever!!

    And many wished him well on his next endeavors:

    @Tom_Bergeron Love your personality! Being at the top of your game and being let go and now seeing this post assures me your next gig will be even bigger, better and we will support you by showing up and cheering you on!

    Tyra has yet to respond, but we will update you if she does. As they say, all is fair in love and dancing...or something like that. 😉
