Miller’s accident came as some of her former students have taken to social media to air their grievances with their tough-as-nails teacher.

In an August 8 TikTok video, Mackenzie Ziegler appeared to shade Miller.  “Think you can hurt my feelings? I was on Dance Moms,” the 16-year-old captioned one of her videos, Life & Style reported. 

Ziegler’s sharp comments about her time on the dance-focused reality show didn’t come out of nowhere. Recently, some messages Miller supposedly sent to a Dance Moms group chat were leaked.
