Jaleel White: 'Dancing' fans' "Jerkel" nickname will eventually pass
UPI News Service, 04/07/2012
Jaleel White says he didn't know he's been dubbed "Jerkel" by "Dancing with the Stars" fans in reaction to his angry blowup at dance partner Kym Johnson.
"I didn't even know [about the nickname]," White told People magazine. "I've stayed offline. I don't think that's what people are saying. That's what certain Web sites or comments boards are coming up with for fodder, and it will pass."
