Abby Lee Miller caused quite a stir on Facebook when she appeared as a guest judge on Dancing With The Stars. The Dance Moms star told Meryl Davis to fix her feet and, in turn, was roundly criticized by Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Abby is still bothered by the DWTS pro’s attitude. but that didn’t stop her from offering him a few words of wisdom.
It’s no secret that the cast of Dancing With The Stars has a problem with Abby Lee Miller. A few years ago, Derek Hough and Mark Ballas slammed the Dance Moms star for her harsh teaching style, accusing the studio owner of being an embarrassment to the dance community. Maksim Chmerkovskiy clearly agrees with his fellow dancing pros; when guest judge Abby criticized Meryl Davis’ sickled feet, Maks responded, “I really don’t care for anything that [Abby] has to say.” This comment elicited plenty of praise on Twitter, but it definitely didn’t sit well with Abby.
Several months have passed since Maks and Abby’s tense exchange, but the famous dance teacher still holds a bit of a grudge against the Dancing With The Stars champ. During a recent red carpet interview with SheKnows, Abby trashed Maks for his inability to take criticism with a professional attitude. She explained, “I teach my dancers to expect to be critiqued when you go into a competition…I’m sure his dance teacher taught him that too.”
What do you think? Was Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s response to Abby Lee Miller’s critique out of line? Or was this just the dancer’s way of showing his opposition to Abby’s controversial teaching style? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
