    Lifetime cuts ties with ‘Dance Moms’ star Abby Lee Miller after racism allegations

    Abby Lee Miller’s Dance Moms spinoff, Abby’s Virtual Dance Off, has been canceled in the wake of racist accusations against the reality TV star, Yahoo Entertainment confirms. Lifetime severed ties entirely with Miller and won’t bring her back for the ninth season of Dance Moms, should it get renewed.

    It all started when Miller, 53, posted a black square for Blackout Tuesday to show her support for the Black Lives Matter movement and was called out by a former contestant’s mother. Adriana Smith, whose daughter Kamryn competed on Season 8 last year, claimed Miller made racist remarks to her then 7-year-old during filming.

    “A statement from her that sticks in my mind to this day during my time on DMS8 is ‘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,” Smith wrote.

    Smith also claimed Kamryn overheard someone affiliated with the show saying she was included because “they need a sprinkle of color.”

    That prompted another parent to speak out. Camille Bridges told E! News she felt Miller treated her daughter unfairly because of her race. Miller apologized on Thursday.

    “I genuinely understand and deeply regret how my words have effected and hurt those around me in the past, particularly those in the Black community,” Miller wrote on social media. “To Kamryn, Adriana, and anyone else I’ve hurt, I am truly sorry.”

    Miller continued, “I realize that racism can come not just from hate, but also from ignorance. No matter the cause, it is harmful, and it is my fault. While I cannot change the past or remove the harm I have done, I promise to educate myself, learn, grow and do better. While I hope to one day earn your forgiveness, I recognize that words alone are not enough. I understand it takes time and genuine change.”

    That apology wasn’t accepted. On Friday, Smith called Miller’s words insincere and explained that the dance instructor never privately reached out.
