GLEE’S ALEX NEWELL CO-SIGNS SHADY ON-SET ALLEGATIONS TOWARDS LEA MICHELE: ‘GET HER!&#821

So I was minding my own business (like I always do), and was busy scrolling through Twitter for news regarding the BLM protests, and I happened to see Lea Michele trending. I thought to myself, ‘oh, god…what did she say that has her trending on Twitter (people who have been trending..Tiger Woods, Linda Hogan, American Horror Story star Evan Peters and a laundry list of others have been dragged by black Twitter in regards to their tone deaf comments about the protests). So when I saw that she was pro BLM, I was relieved.

However the shade that came next had me sipping every last drop of tea out of my sippy cup. Last week Lea wrote on Twitter the following about George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement:

George Floyd did not deserve this. This was not an isolated incident and it must end.”

Samantha Ware, an actor who played Jane Hayward on the final season of Glee, revealed that Lea was mean to her on the sixth and final season of the show. Ware appeared in 11 out of 13 episodes.

Here’s what Samantha tweeted:

LMAO REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE MY FIRST TELEVISON GIG A LIVING HELL?!?! CAUSE ILL NEVER FORGET. I BELIEVE YOU TOLD EVERYONE THAT IF TOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY YOU WOULD “SHIT IN MY WIG!” AMONGST OTHER TRAUMATIC MICROAGRESSIONS THAT MADE ME QUESTION A CAREER IN HOLLYWOOD… https://t.co/RkcaMBmtDA — SAMEYAAAAAA (@Sammie_Ware) June 2, 2020

Alex Newell, who played Unique on Glee backed up Samantha’s claims by posting a series of gifs, including one that said “Get Her!”

She was there I was being polite!! Like I was with anyone that came to see my show! Also I know youre not talking about the season I wasn’t in… until I had to ask to come back so I could pay my bills… since I was released mid season five… while being a series regular! — Alex Newell (@thealexnewell) June 2, 2020

This isn’t the first time Lea has been accused of being a raging bitch on the set of Glee. Co-star Naya Rivera spilled all the tea about working with Lea on the show, and people looked at Naya like she was insane.

Naya tried telling y’all!! She got so much heat for calling her out. pic.twitter.com/n9gUXu6zUk — Julie Rivera (@Juliejulez85) June 2, 2020

Since this story came out, HelloFresh, a weekly recipe-kit delivery service announced that they have ended their partnership with Michele. Here’s what they said when a fan asked the service if they were still working with Michele.

“HelloFresh does not condone racism nor discrimination of any kind. We are disheartened and disappointed to learn of the recent claims concerning Lea Michele. We take this very seriously, and have ended our partnership with Lea Michele, effective immediately.”
