Dance Mom's Abby Lee Miller

Whether you love or hate Lifetime‘s Dance Moms, fans seem to agree that Abby Miller is one tough teacher. Abby Miller was recently bashed by Katherine Heigl, and now some of the pros from Dancing With The Stars have joined the slam fest! More after the jump…

Dance Moms‘ star, Abby Miller was recently bashed by Katherine Heigl, as Heigl accused the instructor of demeaning her students, and diminishing their self-esteem. Now, a couple of our favorite Dancing With The Stars’ pros have jumped on the bash bandwagon as well. First up was Derek Hough, who took to Twitter to share his disapproval: “I’m sorry, but this ‘Dance Mom’ show is straight up abusive. Kids Run!!!!!!! It ain’t right. Child abuse isn’t right. I’m livid right now. I believe in discipline and a strong work ethic. But there is nothing productive about screaming and making little girls cry over being on the wrong foot.”

And Derek Hough was not the only Dancing With The Stars pro to share his disappointment in Abby Miller. Mark Ballas joined his co-star as he also posted on Twitter: “This teacher lady is crazy. Completely wrong attitude toward the kids. It’s embarrassing.” Meanwhile, Abby Miller recently appeared on The View, where she defended her techniques, claiming that some children need the strict approach, even if that includes the foam bat.

    Any parent who takes their child to this ‘teacher’ should be charged with child abuse. This woman is disgusting!

    Next up on Dance Moms, DFACS and the police show up and haul off teach to a nice cell where other inmates can show her some discipline and the right way to use a bat.
