Former Glee star Samantha Ware has slammed Lea Michele online. The actress, who famously starred as Jane Hayward in 11 episodes of the Fox TV show, accused her old costar of making her life “a living hell” on set.
“Remember when you my first television gig a living Hell?!?! ‘Cause I’ll never forget,” she wrote on Twitter. “I believe you told everyone that if you had the opportunity you would ‘s**t in my wig’ amongst other traumatic microagressions that made me question a career in Hollywood.”
Samantha, who went on to star in series like What/If? and Margot Vs. Lily, had replied to a message that Lea posted in honor of the Black Lives Matter movement following George Floyd‘s tragic death.
“George Floyd did not deserve this. This was not an isolated incident and it must end. #BlackLivesMatter,” Lea tweeted.

While Alex and Amber just replied with GIFs, Dabier added, “Girl, you wouldn’t let me sit at the table with the other cast members ’cause ‘I didn’t belong there.’ F**k you, Lea.”
For those who missed it, on May 25, George — a 46-year-old, unarmed black man — died in Minneapolis, MN, after a police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes. The white officer — Derek Chauvin — did not move even as George repeatedly said “I can’t breathe,” as heard in a video captured by bystanders. The officer has since been arrested and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
Many stars have spoken out about his unjust passing, and some even took to the streets to protest. Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Cole Sprouse, Shawn Mendes, Lauren Jauregui, Halsey, Madison Beer and tons more are among those who have participated in protests so far.
