Ware responded to a tweet from Michele, who had posted in support of the Black Lives Matter movement following the death of George Floyd.

Lea Michele's tweet read, "George Floyd did not deserve this". "This was not an isolated incident and it must end".

Michele performed Rachel Berry, one of the principle forged members all through all six seasons of "Glee". Alex Newell, who appeared as Unique Adams, and Amber Riley, who played Mercedes Jones, also reacted. Ware wrote. "I believe you told everyone that if you had the opportunity you would 'sh*t in my wig!' amongst [sic] traumatic microaggressions that made me question a career in Hollywood".


Castmate Samantha Ware, who performed the function of Jane Hayward throughout the collection' ultimate season, replied to the Twitter publish on Monday although, recalling when Lea threatened to "shit in" her wig. Previously, rumors indicated that Michele and former co-star Naya Rivera also had a hard relationship while working together. In Rivera's memoir titled Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up, she wrote of her experience with Michele. And it seems as though she isn't alone in her complaints about the series' star. "Lea and I definitely weren't the best of friends, and I doubt we'll ever sit on her couch and eat kale together again".
