Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Honey Boo Boo and Her Family Haven’t “Earned the Right” to Be on DWTS (VIDEO)

Sorry, Honey Boo Boo and family. It looks like you’re persona non grata to the Dancing With the Stars pros.

Last week, DWTS pro Karina Smirnoff said she wouldn’t want to see the titular reality star or mama June on an upcoming season. Now, Maksim Chmerkovskiy has chimed in, telling EXTRA, “I don’t see Honey Boo Boo or any of her relatives having earned the right because I think it’s an honor to be on the show.”

He also suggested that DWTS needs bigger stars in the future, and that “some, not all, of our stars have been of questionable backgrounds.”

Ouch! Any guesses as to whom he’s referring?

Watch the full clip below!

Dancing With the Stars Season 16 premieres March 18, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
