"I am as far from any of those things as a person can be," said Dean, who once called himself an "alpha male".
"Everyone's entitled to their opinion. However, if he had ever actually met me, he would know that I am as far from any of those things as a person can be. I don't judge anyone based on gender, ethnicity, sexuality or any other such traits.
"I am choosing to ignore negativity and focus on the challenge of learning to dance and hopefully raising money for my nominated charity, the BridgIT Water Foundation. That's what it's [the show] all about."
"Dancing with the Stars is such a great show and I am honoured and humbled to be chosen amongst such a talented bunch of people," Dean concluded.
His response to the savage takedown comes after Georgia Love's fiance took to Instagram to express his disappointment in casting Dean on DWTS, claiming we shouldn't be giving him any more air time considering his nasty comments about women in the past.
As we know, Dean made a name for himself as the MAFS "bad boy" after cheating on his TV wife Tracey Jewel with Davina Rankin.
“When did this country star celebrating intolerable, sexist, chauvinistic bigots?” Lee wrote alongside a photo of a DWTS promotional snap.
