"I'm very curious to see how Tom Bergeron will get out of this one," one viewer tweets.

Tom Bergeron made a really awkward joke about dance pro Witney Carson on "Dancing With the Stars" Monday night, and everyone -- including Carson -- is confused by it.

Carrie Ann Inaba was praising Carson and her partner, Frankie Muniz, for their aerial waltz to Ed Sheeran's "Perfect."

"So far for me, that was the closest thing to perfection. I mean, you are so exquisite when you dance," she said. "It's just so clean. I look for mistakes, but I don't see them -- except for when you almost lost control of Witney there."

That's when Bergeron chimed in: "I'm guessing he's not the first guy who's lost control of Witney."

Carson was visibly confused by the comment, and the audience was audibly offended.

"You can be a harsh taskmaster," Bergeron continued in an attempt to explain what he meant.

After the show, Muniz told People, "I think it was just 'Make Witney Uncomfortable Day.'"

Carson added, "I didn't really get it at first because I was like, 'I don't really get what that means,' but yeah, thanks. Thanks for whatever that was."

"I'm just going to brush it off, and I hope you guys do too," she added.

Bergeron has not yet responded to TooFab's request for comment, but the internet has sure been vocal. See some of the outrage in the tweets below.
