HelloFresh Cuts Ties With Lea Michele After Samantha Ware Accusations

While Michele thought she was doing a good deed by expressing her empathy for Floyd's death and insisting she supports the #BlackLivesMatter movement, her former Glee co-stars are calling her bluff.

HelloFresh said they were "disheartened and disappointed" to learn of Ware's claims about Michele, who was paid to promote its services on social media.

"I believe you told everyone that if you had the opportunity, you would "s*** in my wig" amongst other traumatic microaggressions that made me question a career in Hollywood", Ware wrote.

Michele has not responded to Ware's tweet nor commented on her account since it was published.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Ware's tweet had amassed more than 290,000 likes and 4,000 replies, in less than 14 hours.

From there, it was truly just a trickle-down of stories from celebrities who worked with Michele or met her out and about, and it seemed to be never-ending.

Actor Dabier Snell has joined the growing list of Glee stars attacking Lea Michele for her alleged bad behaviour on the set of the hit TV series, insisting she wasn't very friendly to new cast members.

After the accusations were made, Hello Fresh announced that they ended their partnership with Lea.

Amber Riley, who also starred in "Glee", also tweeted, but used gifs instead of words. She went on to appear in What/If, Chicago Med, and Barry. Berry was the lead character in the drama and her character was strong but was frequently misunderstood by her friends at the Glee club. Glee cast mate Alex Newell, who played Unique Adams, said in support of Ware.

"GIRL YOU WOULDNT LET ME SIT AT THE TABLE WITH THE OTHER CAST MEMBERS CAUSE "I DIDNT BELONG THERE" F**K YOU LEA (sic)", Snell wrote on social media. Amidst Blackout Tuesday, Lea stayed silent on the matter, but she finally issued a response during the early hours of June 3.

She continued, "Whether it was my privileged position and perspective that caused me to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times or whether it was just my immaturity and me being unnecessarily hard, I apologize for my behavior and for any pain which I have caused".
