America's Got Talent hit the rocks once again this week during a very "uncomfortable" moment for judge Heidi Klum.
One of those trying to win a pass to the semi-finals on Tuesday's show (August 25) was comedian Usama Siddiquee, whose stand-up routine didn't earn any raves from former Project Runway host Klum.
Her expression throughout his set indicated that she wasn't impressed with his comedy skills, but her dislike of Siddiquee was probably solidified with comedy about anti-feminism.
Siddiquee suggested that women are more permissive of sexist insults in hip-hop music, before joking that Klum would confess to being "a tramp" if it was in a rap lyric.
"You'd be like, 'Well, I do get loose on occasion'," he told the less-than-impressed supermodel.
When it came time for the judging, Mandel was the first to call out the uncomfortable atmosphere on the judging panel.
"I was just sitting beside these two, and I don't know if they were giving you… the response you were expecting," he pointed out.
Former Modern Family star Vergara was more light-hearted in her critique, but admitted she found his material "risky" and questioned whether she should actually have laughed at it.
"Being called a 'tramp' probably was my least uncomfortable part of the whole thing," Klum ultimately chimed in. “But that's just me. Let's see what America thinks.”
Wednesday's results show will reveal whether the public have decided to pass Siddiquee through to the next round, or send him home after making anti-feminist jokes.
America's Got Talent continues at 9pm ET on NBC tonight (August 26). It airs on Netflix in the UK.
