A dancer who dressed like a giant pink teddy bear and who Twerked behind Miley Cyrus during her Video Music Awards routine has spoken out and expressed deep shame over the routine.

Seriously.

Miley Cyrus VMA Dancing

"I will be the first one to tell you that standing on that stage, in that costume was one of the most degrading things I felt like I could ever do," Hollis Jane wrote on her blog last week. "I realize not everyone shares my opinion and I might just be young and naive, but I feel like the acceptance of this kind of treatment has got to stop."

Jane is one of the little people with whom Cyrus has performed over the past few weeks, from the VMAs to the Today Show stage on Monday.

"For decades, little people have not been taken seriously and we still continue to not be," the dancer wrote. "I had never been in a performance where I was purely meant to be gawked or laughed at. I will never forget that performance because it is what forced me to draw my personal line in the sand."

So why did she go through with it? Money.

Jane said her computer and her car have both been in the shop recently and she has been strapped of for cash.

But Jane was also chosen to accompany Cyrus on her upcoming tour and she has decided it's not worth it.

"I was being stared and laughed at for all of the wrong reasons," she says of the VMAs. "I was being looked at as a prop…as something less than human."

Where do you stand on Miley using little people as part of her live performances?

It's not so much inappropriate due to the little people. The whole "dance" Miley did plus her outfit plus she looks nasty is inappropriate. Does she own a toothbrush?

No one could even see who this woman was because she was in a costume and so no one was laughing at her or gawking at her, in fact no one cares about her. She is using this as some sort of fame seeking jive to get even more money as she's so "strapped for cash".
No one forced her to do this job, if it was so degrading then you wouldn't do it, regardless of money...
There have been PLENTY of artists that use "little people" in their videos and performances and no one gives them a hard time for it and it's like people calling Miley racist for having black people in her performance... Was Gwen Stefani a racist when she only had asian girls in her video? It's such double standards, it's unreal.

And btw for everyone with nasty comments seriously get over it if you dont like it dont watch and dont listen. You need something to excite you pathedic lives or something?...she's young and we all have went through stages that we look back on and shake our heads get off your high horses...I've seen girls worse off then miley and ppl tried in couraging them not humiliate them..me personally I don't have a problem with miley shes young and having fun and the music that she's been putting out has been HOT...she owes no one an apology for daring to be different. Individuality is key and something that has been missing in the industry for a long time rather you like "the movement" or not she still deserves respect for actually going out on a limb and putting herself out there

This dancer is full of shit...if you feel so degraded don't do it is really that simple.. she just wants 10 secs of fame and a nice sob story..one no one was laughing at her because alla see eyes where on miley's performance. I dont feel sorry or have any remorse for her.

That performance looks like more like child porn and I think this is the reason why most people feels gross out by it.

The dancer did it because of money which I understand. At least they didn't have to show their faces. Miley is just plain nasty.... Which I'm sure most agree.

She's got a lot of nerve calling herself an artist. What she does is ignorance and it has nothing to do with art unless of course I shit on a canvas , slap a coat of paint in it and call it Miley- that could be art.
