Safe to sayMaksim Chmerkovskiyis no longer in step with Kirstie Alley.

The 42-year-old pro dancer just called out his former Dancing With The Starspartner after she tweeted that she didn't know "what's real and what is fake" regarding Russia's invasion of the Ukraine.

"We haven't spoke in a while, but I clearly remember being right next to you while you were organizing trucks of aid during hurricane Sandy and I remember all that you were saying to me about situations where innocent are suffering," Maks wrote on his Instagram Story on Feb. 26 over a screen shot of Kirstie's original tweet, which has since been deleted. "The same energy is needed right now."

Kirstie, 71, had originally written, "I don't know what's real or what is fake in this war. So I won't be commenting. I'll pray instead." Maks wrote in his response, "No one needs your prayer if you don't know what's real or fake."

"I'm sorry that I'm not an expert on APPARENTLY EVERYTHING.. like some of you jack wagons," Kirstie tweeted. "It's ok to admit you don't know things."

In another tweet she insisted, "Uh oh.. I fight for civil and equal rights too."

Without naming names, she also issued a threat of sorts to expose those celebs who come for her.

"Almost Time to take off the gloves," she tweeted. "I have a curtesy policy to not publicly reveal secrets about other celebs, but I'm done with the public lies and covert jabs. And not so covert."

Following the criticism, Kirstie also share a document of organizations that are supporting the people of Ukraine, provided by Ukrainian actress Milla Jovovich.

Maks had been filming the reality show World of Dancein Ukraine for six months and recently returned to the now-war-torn nation after a brief trip home to Los Angeles to see wife Peta Murgatroydand five-year-old son Shai. He has been posting harrowing firsthand account of the crisis on social media from the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv. In one of his latest clips, posted later on Feb. 26, sirens are heard.
