Samantha Ware reveals not so sweet harmony with Glee co-star Lea Michele

Lea Michele apologized after former Glee castmates accused her of racist behavior, and she lost a lucrative brand sponsorship.

Michele posted on Twitter to show her support for Black Lives Matter yesterday, only to be criticised by Ware for her hypocritical behaviour. Cause ill never forget.

Though many were convinced Riley would join the growing number of Glee actors who came out in support of Ware's statement - particularly after she posted a series of gifs of herself seemingly responding to the drama on Twitter - the actress recently made it clear that she wasn't going to dig deeper into this controversy.

"HelloFresh does not condone racism nor discrimination of any kind", tweeted the meal-kit company.

Michele, who is expecting her first child, has come out and apologised on Instagram since the claims surfaced, saying that "one of the most important lessons of the last few weeks is that we need to take the time to listen and learn about other people's perspectives and any role we have played or anything we can do to help address the injustices that they face". "We take this very seriously, and have ended our partnership with Lea Michele, effective immediately".


I was very involved in Glee from the time I was 17 until I was around 20, when I finally broke and stopped interacting with the fandom online-alas, I did eventually finish watching the show, because I'm a martyr.

Lea Michele's days on Glee have been commented on by Dean Geyer, now, with the actor speaking about his time on the show playing Brody Weston.

She skewered the musical theatre actor as "unpleasant" to work work, alleging that Michele would treat the cast with "disrespect".

Writing to her 26.5k followers, Marti said "Hey, I'm all for calling out bad behavior and even for some schadenfreude when that behavior is punished".

"You were nothing but a nightmare to me and fellow understudy cast members".


For emphasis, Ware typed her tweet out in capital letters. In addition to this, Alex Newell, Amber Riley and Dabier Snell, who also featured in the show, reflected on Ware's accusations and extended their support. She reached out to me, I responded to her and that's where it ends for me.

Dean went on to say that "Her work ethic is so strong it forces you to always be on top of your game, and that's something I looked forward to every day on set. I wish her well, I hope she has an fantastic pregnancy, I hope that she has grown". "And I imply that for each side of this coin!"

"You used to call extras on Glee "cockroaches" and you got people fired on a whim".

She continued: "It seems to me that women are the first to go under the bus".

Popular drag queen and actor Willam Belli also weighed in, saying he left the set of Glee after Michele treated him "subhuman".
