Abby Lee Miller’s new Lifetime show as been pulled after her racist comments during Dance Moms were revealed. Abby’s Virtual Dance Off was announced back in April, and was meant to be a competition series that took place at-home during coronavirus self-isolation measures. The show was supposed to air 12 episodes this summer, but according to Entertainment Weekly it’s been canceled as a result of Miller’s racism. She also will no longer be on Dance Moms itself, if it even gets renewed.
As a reminder, Miller shared a since-deleted #BlackoutTuesday post on Instagram, which resulted in her being called out for racist comments she made to several moms and their daughters. Dance Moms’ Adriana Smith responded directly to Miller’s post with her own Instagram, writing “I couldn’t think of a more perfect day to address my experience with Abby Lee Miller. Wanna know the truth? Wanna know my TRUTH?”
She went on to chronicle some despicable things Miller said to her, including “I know you grew up in the HOOD with only a box of 8 crayons, but I grew up in the Country Club with a box of 64—don’t be stupid.”
