She made her name as the teacher of Taskmaster at Dance Moms of Lifetime.
Now Abby Lee Miller comes in defense of Prince George, six, after Lara Spencer, 50, Good Morning America, played his ballet lessons on national television.
The 53-year-old reality star labeled Spencer & # 39; s comments as sexist and urged her to sit outside for the next ballet performance, according to TMZ.
Getting up: Abby Lee Miller, 53, came to defend Prince George, six, after Lara Spencer, 50, Good Morning America, laughed his ballet lessons on national television
In a video post that was shared on her Instagram on Friday, Abby immediately addressed the TV presenter's comments, although she didn't want to send Lara a potential supporter.
& # 39; Good morning America, it's time to wake up. I'm not even going to say her name because she gets too much publicity and I don't need all my followers to follow her. That's not what we want, & she started.
& # 39; What we want is so much more. What about donating your salary for a year to the arts? & # 39; she suggested. & # 39; That would be great. & # 39;
& # 39; I have so many male dancers that I have trained that have a great career. Their Saturday morning ballet classes certainly pay off.
Success Stories: & # 39; What about donating your salary to the arts for a year? & # 39; suggested Abby, before noting that they were former male students on & # 39; Broadway & # 39; and appears in Steven Spielberg's upcoming West Side Story adaptation; pictured May 20
& # 39; They are on Broadway, they are on world trips, they are in the new Steven Spielberg movie. I mean, come on, it's 2019, I thought this stuff was over. I think I was wrong – and most of the time I'm not wrong, "she said.
The dance instructor and criminal closed her video in denominational style with a call for every child to learn to dance.
Abby's comments came in the wake of Spencer's comments on Thursday when she was enjoying the extracurricular activities of Prince George.
& # 39; The future King of England will lay down the Play-Doh to undertake religious studies, computer programming, poetry and ballet, among other things, & she said, while her studio audience burst out laughing.
Hardly able to suppress her own giggles, she continued with a warning to his father: "Prince William says that George absolutely loves ballet, I have news for you Prince William – we'll see how long that lasts." # 39;

The GMA anchor has been widely criticized for the comments that many have interpreted as a sexist jab against male dancers.
On Monday, hundreds of dancers surrounded the GMA studio in New York City to answer pirouette in response to Spencer's comments.
She tried to downplay the controversy by interviewing three male dancers from the cast of Cats in a pre-recorded segment, while offering an apology that did not cut words.
& # 39; I ruined it. I did. The comment I made about dance was insensitive, it was stupid and I am very sorry, & she admitted.
& # 39; I have spoken with several members of the dance community in recent days, I have listened, I have learned about the courage that a young boy needs to pursue a career in dance and last night I sat down with three influential dancers who have lived it firsthand, & she continued before launching the segment.
Passionate protest: after her apology, hundreds of dancers gathered and performed outside the Good Morning America studio
Lara & # 39; s interview guests asked for & # 39; more empathy & # 39; when it came to dancers and others urged & # 39; broad-minded & # 39; to be about the chase.
& # 39; Children must have the right to experience things without being bullied. Just let people follow their dream, whether it's dance, whatever it is, & said Travis Wall from So You Think You Can Dance.
Lara called the experience a & # 39; real education & # 39 ;.
& # 39; The lesson for me is that words hurt and it was not my intention, but it was insensitive and I thank you all for giving me the opportunity to personally apologize for you and for those who come to sit here to talk to me and teach me and again, I am really sorry. & # 39;
After her guests accepted her apologies, she added: & # 39; So grateful for a very positive conversation and the opportunity to turn a negative into an educational moment. & # 39;
Straighten it: & # 39; I ruined it. I did. The comment I made about dance was insensitive, it was stupid and I am very sorry, & # 39; well-known Spencer for her pre-recorded interview
