Abby Lee Miller's Dance Moms Spinoff Cancelled At Lifetime After Racism Accusation

(Image credit: Lifetime)

Abby Lee Miller's time on Lifetime may be at an end. The reality TV personality and dance instructor starred on Lifetime's Dance Moms for most of eight seasons, and was successful enough that the network ordered a spinoff series despite some legal woes, called Dance Moms: Abby's Virtual Dance Off. The show was set to premiere in mere weeks, but now Lifetime has cancelled it before it could even premiere following accusations of racist remarks from the mother of one of Miller's former students.

Dance Moms: Abby's Virtual Dance Off was slated to run for 12 episodes as a Dance Moms spinoff that could be produced remotely, but EW reports that the show has been cancelled by Lifetime after the accusations that Abby Lee Miller made racist remarks to and about former Dance Moms contestant Adriana Smith. The show had been scheduled to premiere on Tuesday, June 30 at 8 p. m. ET on the network.

In a video hyping the show and asking for submissions, Abby Lee Miller (who served time for some of her actions regarding Dance Moms income) said that she was looking for "an Abby dancer" and would be the judge herself, with "no moms, no producers, just" her. Considering Abby's Virtual Dance Off was poised to heavily rely on Miller herself, Lifetime's decision to cancel in the wake of the accusations against Miller isn't altogether surprising.

Given that Abby Lee Miller reportedly wouldn't be returning to Dance Moms even if Lifetime renewed it for a ninth season, the cancellation of Abby's Virtual Dance Off could indeed be the end of her time at the network. The accusations of racism from Adriana Smith were prompted by Miller choosing to post on Instagram in protest of racism and police brutality. Smith responded with a post of her own, stating that Miller had directed racist remarks at both herself and her young daughter, Kamryn Smith.

Abby Lee Miller responded to Adriana Smith's post by stating that she came to "deeply regret" how her words affected Smith and her daughter, and she is "truly sorry" and one day hoped to "earn" their forgiveness. Adriana Smith didn't mince words in her response to Miller's apology, posting this on Instagram:

At this time, I do not accept Abby’s apology because her apology was not sincere. My daughter and I have yet to hear directly from Abby Lee Miller. Moreover, she didn’t even bother to tag me or Kamryn in her post. How else would we know she apologized? My friends and peers informed me of the apology. How sincere could it be?! What happened to a phone call or at least a personal direct message?

As for Lifetime, at the time of writing the network hasn't responded on social media to Adriana Smith's accusations, Abby Lee Miller's response, and the decision to cancel Abby's Virtual Dance Off. Only time will tell if and how this situation and the spinoff cancellation will impact the future of Dance Moms, which has yet to be renewed for Season 9 or officially cancelled despite Season 8 wrapping back in September 2019.

Lifetime cancels plans to air Abby Lee Miller reality show after racism accusations

Lifetime has canceled a new reality series starring "Dance Moms" choreographer Abby Lee Miller after Miller was accused of making racist comments to a former student and her mother.

A spokesperson for Lifetime told TODAY on Friday that "we currently do not have plans" to air "Abby’s Virtual Dance Off," a 12-episode series that was expected to premiere this summer. The news comes just days after Adriana Smith, mother of season eight "Dance Moms" star Kamryn Smith, accused Miller of making racist remarks that prompted her to pull her daughter off the series — a claim Miller didn't deny.

The controversy began earlier this week after Miller shared an image of a black square on Instagram in honor of Blackout Tuesday, a day when social media users stopped to reflect amid protests over George Floyd’s death in police custody. Miller's now-deleted post inspired Smith to share a lengthy reply on Instagram using the hashtag “#DontActLikeYouCare. "

"I recently posted on my FB that Racism is not something we can disagree on and still be friends, which in turn is why we are not friends," Smith wrote of Miller before sharing a shocking anecdote about the dance instructor. "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 said Miller also told her daughter, Kamryn, that she and her mother were featured on the series because the show needed a "sprinkle of color."

Smith went on to say she pulled Kamryn off the show because she refused to let "this racist person have any part of my daughter’s life," adding, "People need to be held accountable not just for the injustices but for also for being a closet racist. "

Miller responded to the claims by apologizing to Smith and her daughter on Instagram.

"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. “To Kamryn, Adriana, and anyone else I’ve hurt, I am truly sorry."

Miller also promised to "do better" going forward.

"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," she stated. "While I cannot change the past or remove the harm I have done, I promise to educate myself, learn, grow, and do better."

Smith shared the image of Miller's apology note on her own Instagram page, telling her followers she refused to accept it because it was "not sincere. "

"My daughter and I have yet to hear directly from Abby Lee Miller," she wrote, pointing out that the choreographer didn't reach out by telephone, send a personal message, or even tag Smith in her apology.

Smith added that she shared her story about Miller to show how it "negatively impacted my daughter," and she felt that "it resonated with many others because of the distressing times in our country."

"At this point, this is bigger than Kamryn and I," she added. "It’s about the potential effect that (Miller) has on the future of dance and negative, stereotypical influences on young, aspiring dancers of color."

Unfortunately the girls don't dance at Abby's anymore.💞

♦ Chloe left after season 4, as her contract with the producers of the show Moms in Dance ended, and Chloe's mom (Christy) was renewing the contract, due to special conditions in the contract itself, - refused.

♦Maddie left recently (February 27 of this year was the last performance of Maddie and Mackenzie as part of Abby Lee's team in Los Angeles "ALDCLA").

The girls had to leave the project as they move back to Pittsburgh and Maddie wants to try her hand at modeling and acting more than before. Also the contract of the Ziegler family (which includes 6 seasons) ended and they did not renew it. But with the move to Pittsburgh, the girls will continue to go to their old group "ALDC" - where the first seasons of the show were filmed, but the Ziegler sisters will no longer star in the show.
