Twitter users have woken up to yet another celebrity joining the ranks of the ‘cancelled’.
The past two weeks have been tumultuous for a number of reasons: the ongoing global pandemic, the death of George Floyd, riots and protests all across America. This year is really shaping up to be one of the most dramatic in a generation.
To add to the world’s outrage, the past two weeks have seen a number of celebrities called out for their previous remarks and past behaviour. We’ve seen Lana del Rey critiqued over her white feminism and Jimmy Fallon condemned for his use of blackface on SNL.
The latest celebrity to be added to the ‘cancelled’ list is none other than Glee’s Lea Michele.
So, what did Lea Michele do to earn herself the ‘cancelled’ title? Here’s what went down on Twitter on Tuesday, June 2nd.
What did Sammie Ware say about Lea Michele?
The ‘cancellation’ of Lea kicked off after her fellow co-star called her out for bullying.
Sammie Ware starred as Jane Hayward in Glee season 6.
After Lea Michele shared a tweet in support of #BlackLivesMatter on May 29th, 2020, Sammie was quick to mention that Lea had engaged in microagressions that “made [her] question a career in Hollywood.”
Sammie claimed that on set, Lea “told everyone that if you had the opportunity you would ‘sh*t in my wig!'”
Glee stars speak out
A number of celebrities commented on Sammie Ware’s statement.
It kicked off with Community actress Yvette Nicole Brown who replied: “I felt every one of those capital letters.”
Alex Newell, who played Unique Adams on Glee then responded to Yvette, tweeting: “Felt like claps!!”
Amber Riley, who famously played Mercedes Jones opposite Michele’s Rachel Berry, replied with a GIF of herself sipping tea.
Finally, actor Dabier, who was in one episode of Glee back in 2014, called out Michele for her behavior. Dabier tweeted: “GIRL YOU WOULDNT LET ME SIT AT THE TABLE WITH THE OTHER CAST MEMBERS CAUSE “I DIDNT BELONG THERE” F— YOU LEA”
Twitter claims Lea Michele is cancelled
With these celebrities and Glee co-stars calling Lea Michele out for her behaviour, Twitter users instantly deemed her ‘cancelled’.
Michele has yet to comment on these statements about her past behaviour, but we’re sure the world will be watching for when she does.
