Former Co-Stars And A “Glee” Producer Respond To Lea Michele’s Apology and Past Behavior

June 4, 2020 / Posted by:

The one bright spot during an extremely difficult week has been witnessing the long-overdue comeuppance of one Ms. Lea Michele. It’s satisfying to imagine the assholes in our own lives eventually facing similar consequences. You know, the entire world turning against them and losing their precious HelloFresh deal.

Yesterday Lea “apologized” by how her “behavior towards fellow cast members was perceived by them”. Uh huh, way to shove all that blame onto your cast members. It wasn’t you, it was their silly perceptions! Samantha Marie Ware, who kicked things off when she laughed at Lea’s Black Lives Matter tweet, shared her thoughts about the non-apology.

Here’s the tweet:

Amber Riley shared Samantha’s sentiments, saying she’s over all of this Lea bullshit, and that “people are out here dying”. Amber admitted that Lea reached out to her, she responded, and that’s that on that, Jack:


Heather Morris, who played Brittany on Glee, said that although Lea was very much “unpleasant to work with”, she may just be an equal opportunity bitch, and we shouldn’t assume her cruelty had anything to do with Samantha being Black:

Lea’s former Spring Awakening cast member from her Broadway days, wrote this in response to the Instagram apology:

And her understudy on Ragtime, says that Lea has been like this since she was twelve:

Meanwhile, Naya Rivera unfollowed Lea. And Abigail Breslin (who was in Scream Queens with Lea) and former Glee regular Melissa Benoist liked some anti-Lea tweets.

Finally (whew, lots of people hate Lea), Glee producer Marti Noxon said, in a bunch of since-deleted tweets, that the male actors of Glee should also be accounted for their shitty behavior. Thankfully, nothing stays dead on the Internet (just Lea’s career). via JustJared:

“Re: @LeaMichele. Hey, I’m all for calling out bad behavior and even for some schadenfreude when that behavior is punished. That said, on GLEE there were LOTS of bad actors. Who were NOT women. People in the industry know who I’m talking about. Why aren’t we calling them out?” Marti tweeted.

She added, “It seems to me that women are the first to go under the bus. But a lot of males get away with being the bullies-in-chief. How come we let them get away with it? Maybe it’s because as long as they earn someone money, they get a pass.”

Later, Marti “clarified”:

Join us tomorrow for Chapter 4 of “She’ll Shit In Your Wig: The Reckoning of Lea Michele”.
