He didn't mince words: "I have nothing to apologize for to Len [Goodman], certainly not Carrie Ann [Inaba]." He added that he's embraced that DWTS is about more than straight dance talent, "but one thing I'm not going to embrace is pointed fingers and disrespectful remarks."
As for the other dancers, he said that Lacey Schwimmer and Tony Dovolani are on his side in this, and he doesn't care what the other pros think. Indeed, he even snuck in some criticism of Derek Hough, claiming he's been given unfairly talented stars season after season. Yikes! It’s one thing to slam the judges but is Maksim going to far in lashing out at a fellow pro?
