"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.

"Glee" actor Samantha Marie Ware has accused her former co-star Lea Michele for making the experience of working on the show a "living hell" for her due to "traumatic microaggressions".

"George Floyd did not deserve this. She screamed at staff and once randomly had an extra fired only to find out it was Barbra Streisand's niece and then quickly asked for her back on set to get her in touch w her aunt", wrote @linuxtherobot, who claimed to be an extra on Glee. "This was not an isolated incident and it must end", she wrote.

Lea Michele rose to fame in the early 2010s thanks to her role as Rachel Berry on the hit Fox musical comedy-drama series Glee. 'Cause I'll never forget. 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". And as he replied to a fan asking why he took a picture with Michele when she came to watch him in a Broadway show in January 2018, and why he returned for Glee season six, Newell said: "She was there I was being polite!" Amber Riley, who played Mercedes Jones on all six seasons, also posted a GIF of her sipping from a coffee mug.

What Is 'Glee' Star Lea Michele's Net Worth?
In general, this is not the first time that reports have emerged of conflict revolving around Michele on the Glee set. But now one of her Glee co-stars has come forward to accuse her of making her own time on the show 'a living hell'.

Lea is yet to respond to any of Sammie's accusations.

Amber Riley, who starred alongside Lea ever since the first episode, interjected cryptically, via the medium of GIFs. Like I was with anyone that came to see my show! We shall update you if she does. And while there was nothing wrong with her post in the eyes of the average Twitter user, to Ware it reeked of hypocrisy.

It's not a superb search for the at the moment pregnant star, who has feuded with Naya Rivera prior to now, particularly when she claims to care in regards to the black neighborhood!
