After coming under fire on social media for extending an olive branch of friendship to former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, "Queer Eye's" Karamo Brown qualified his statements in a new article with Entertainment Weekly.

"There was no friendship," Brown said in the EW article. "I was just saying that, if we're going to be on the same show, I'm going to have a respectful conversation with someone who's different from me."

This is a somewhat milder sentiment than Brown previously took, when he originally defended his friendship with Spicer, emphasizing "I have literally every day been planting seeds in his heart... And literally, I could see each week those seeds ... blossoming."

Now, perhaps with more distance between him and his elimination from "Dancing with the Stars," Brown had harsher words about Spicer, which he shared with the NY Daily News.

"I was robbed, I should still be there," he confided to Andy Cohen on Tuesday's episode of "Watch What Happens Live."

"He can't dance, that's literally what it is," Brown said to EW. "But it's also fan vote. And Middle America watches the show and they vote for him. And also our president, who should be doing other stuff, has been tweeting 'vote for the man.'"

Brown and partner Jenna Johnson received a combined score of 49, out of a possible 60 points for their performances on the show. For context, in week 8 of this season, USA Today reported Spicer was the lowest scored contestant on the leaderboard.
