Actress Lea Michele, from the famed Glee television show, got more than she bargained for when aired her views over the death of African-American George Floyd.
She tweeted on 30 May, “George Floyd did not deserve this. This was not an isolated incident and it must end. #BlackLivesMatters.”
Actress Samantha Marie Ware, who played Jane Hayward in Glee’s 6th season in 2015, accused of Michele of giving her a “living hell” during her time with the latter in the show.
“LMAO remember when you made my first television gig a living hell?!?! cause ill never forget. I believe you told everyone that if (you) had the opportunity you would “shit in my wig!”, Ware wrote on June 2.
“Amongst other traumatic microaggressions that made me question a career in Hollywood…,” Ware added.
Another Glee co-actor Alex Newell, who played Unique Adams on Glee, joined in by quoting Ware’s tweet with a GIF saying “Get her, Jade!”
Newell, who joined Glee after being discovered on The Glee Project, added “I’m gonna say this one time… when my friends go through something traumatic I also go through it… that’s what friendship is… and if you can’t understand that then you’re part of the problem… and that’s on PERIODT! And I mean that for both sides of this coin.”
Actress Amber Riley, who played Mercedes Jones on the show, joined the fray when she tweeted a string of GIFS – sipping “tea,” raising her hand, and another that reads “let’s move on,” accompanied by the hashtags #DefundThePolice #prosecutekillercops and #BlackLivesMatter.
Actor Dabier Snell, who also made an appearance on Glee in 2014, also reposted Michele’s tweet, claiming that she would not allow him (to) sit at the table with other cast members because “he didn’t belong there.”
“F**k you, Lea,” he added.
