One of the most polarizing personalities in MuchMusic history has been laid off.

Leah Miller, who joined MuchMusic as a VJ in 2004 and went on to host “eTalk” and “So You Think You Can Dance Canada” was cut from the roster as part of recent layoffs by Bell Media, the parent company of MuchMusic, and MTV, according to online reports.

Bell Media has laid off 91 employees and cancelled eight in-house-produced shows such as “1 Girl, 5 Gays,” “After Degrassi,” “Losing It,” “Movie Night,” “MTV News,” “Today’s Top 10s,” “Video On Trial,” and indie video program “The Wedge.”

Miller spent years as the target of online ridicule over rumours she allegedly had plastic surgery and Botox treatments.

She took all the jokes in stride though, and challenged her “haters” in an interview with QMI Agency back in 2010 .

"I always think it's interesting because people can sit on the Internet and write horrible things about you, but when they're face to face with you, they'd never be able to say those things," Miller said.

“I'm a very honest person, I'm not fake, and if I feel something I'll say it. I just find that most people aren't like that, but I wish they would be. It's like, if you have those things to say, come say it to my face next time and we'll have a conversation about it!"
