Dancing with the Stars professional dancer, Maksim Chmerkovskiy has a little feud with judge, Len Goodman after Len criticized Maks and Hope Solo’s dance, calling it her ‘worst’ dances of the season.
According to Life & Style,
“Don’t tell me it was her worst dance of the season like an idiot, when you know it’s not true,” Maks tells Life & Style. “I’ve also danced for 27 years and I’ve won more titles than Len even participated in.”
WhenÂ Life & Style asked Maks if he thought the judges bully the contestants, he said, “Absolutely.”
And Maks isn’t the only one who feels that way: Fellow dancerÂ Lacey Schwimmer and her partner,Â Chaz Bono, agree. “The contestants are called words like animal, Ewok, penguin — just distasteful, rude words,” Lacey tellsÂ Life & Style.
“I feel like one judge in particular, week after week, paints me as this chubby, cuddly, little Ewok — and that’s not about my dancing,” Chaz tellsÂ Life & Style.
But if there’s one thing Maks does regret about last night, it’s one of his comments being misconstrued. “There’s a headline saying ‘Maks callsÂ DWTS” his show”‘ — and what I did say was that I believe it’s my show, along with the other pros,” he tellsÂ Life & Style. “I respect where the judges come from, but I’m just not going to sit back and watch my partner be disrespected.”
