Fans of "Dancing With the Stars" may find it difficult to hate anything about pro Maks Chmerkovskiy, but there are folks out there who dislike him, as "H8R" shows.
"Dancing With the Stars" pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy may make a lot of fans of the reality competition swoon whenever he hits the dance floor, but one woman isn't impressed by the hoofer's smooth moves. Or his attitude.
On Wednesday's new episode of "H8R" -- a new program that features celebs confronting folks who don't like them -- Maks gets an earful from a non-fan named Rebecca. During a dinner conversation with the hunky hoofer, Rebecca tells Maks that she likes how he sticks out his behind when he dances. Why? Because it makes her want to ride him "around the dance floor like a sideshow pony." Except she didn't mean that in a good way.
Maks looked about as stunned by that comment as host Mario Lopez, who cracked up behind the scenes.
But Rebecca wasn't done ripping on the pro dancer yet. "I've seen you act like a total brat. ... To be quite honest, you're being a d---," she said, taking issue with his treatment of a waitress. (To be fair, she has a point about how he treats the ladies. Remember when Maks said fellow "DWTS" pro Cheryl Burke was too heavy?)

So where did all this dislike for the Ukranian ballroom pro come from? "The Internet," Rebecca admitted. Maks' response? Check it out:
Though he faced some tough criticism, it wasn't all bad for Maks. "It was a great experience to come face to face with someone who is so adamant about not liking me," the dancer told The CW. "I thought it would be just a silly show, but it turned into an unforgettable experience."
Will Maks be able to change her mind? You'll have to watch the show at 8 p.m. Wednesday on The CW.
