"I imagine you instructed everybody that for those who had the chance you'll 's- in my wig!' amongst different traumatic microaggressions that made me query a profession in Hollywood", Ware tweeted in all caps.

Lea Michele starred in the Fox music series Joy for six seasons as Rachel Berry, but rumors have swirled for years that the actress was hard to work with.

Overall, Ware's tweet opened up the floodgates as a cascading stream of accusations against Michele's behaviour, primarily from people claiming to have worked as extras during the show's run. Since "Glee" ended, she has starred in "Scream Queens" and "The Mayor", and has continued her singing profession.

"George Floyd did not deserve this". "This was not an isolated incident and it must end".

RuPaul's Drag Race alum William also tweeted, "Lea treated me so subhuman i left the set of Glee". Dabier Snell tweeted, "GIRL YOU WOULDNT LET ME SIT AT THE TABLE WITH THE OTHER CAST MEMBERS CAUSE "I DIDN'T BELONG THERE" FUCK YOU LEA".

It is not the first time a Glee actor has acknowledged tension on the set.

Ware was supported by a number of other Glee cast members with at least four coming forward backing her claims, including central cast members Alex Newell (Unique Adams) and Amber Riley (Mercedes Jones). "#BlackLivesMatter." This tweet was posted on Saturday.

The role was Ware's first in Hollywood, according to her IMDB page. He also clapped back at a fan who thought he and the other costars were lying. He said that he and his castmates "have nothing to lie about six years later".

Naya Rivera wrote in her memoir that two's friendship broke down to the point where they didn't speak during Season 6, according to E News. Riley's tweet, which can be seen below, simply included a GIF of her sipping a drink, which gave a nod to her feelings about the recent controversy.
