Remember Thumper's famous words from "Bambi?"
Cheryl Burke tweeted them after saying that her former dance partner Ian Ziering on "Dancing With the Stars" Season 4 was her "least favorite partner" on Matt Weiss and Theon Von's "Allegedly" podcast, but she has not apologized to Ian for what she said.
The 31-year-old dance pro did not stop after admitting that she enjoyed him the least. "The fact that his name is not EE-AN and it's EYE-AN makes me want to throw up," she said about the "Beverly Hills, 90210" alum.
After the podcast hosts described him as "very intense" but "captivating" on "The Celebrity Apprentice" in 2015, Cheryl spoke about what it was like for her to spend so much time with a person like that.
"It made me want to slit my wrists," she said. "I was like crying to executives. I was like is there any way to please to just eliminate us? They're like we can't. We can't do that and I swear, every time I asked, we just kept going. We would last till the end."
And now those words are coming back to her, and she apologized via Twitter on Sunday.
"I've always lived by the rule that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all," she wrote. "Recently and regrettably, I broke that rule. In the heat of an interview conversation, I used a phrase that seemingly makes light of suicide and I deeply regret it. I have many friends and family members that struggle with depression and thoughts of suicide."
She continued, "To have said something that seemingly makes a mockery of what they've gone through and what they live with is something that I apologize for. I never meant to hurt anyone or to trivialize the topic. I was out of line and for that I apologize."
As of now, Ian has yet to respond.
Cheryl's full interview will be released on the podcast on iTunes on Tuesday.
And while she talked about her "least favorite" partner on the podcast, in 2014, she described her "dream partner" to Wonderwall.com as "anyone hard-working with a lot of discipline and a little rhythm wouldn't hurt!"
In 2013, she also told Wonderwall.com that she has a preference for athletes.
"I get along with athletes, I think, because they know how to be coached, and they know how to be trained," she explained. "Actors or people more in the entertainment business, I feel like sometimes it's hard for them to take direction, which isn't a bad thing. It's just the way that they are."
