Miller went on to explain that she "WAS SO PROUD" that she had gone "AGAINST THE PRODUCER'S IDEA" to have her dancers perform "Where Have All The Children Gone?"

"I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED," she continued. "DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT!"

As People points out, Miller has been embroiled in an ongoing controversy around her Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing amid accusations that she hid almost a million dollars in income from authorities.
