Lea Michele is apologizing for past behavior after her Glee costar Samantha Marie Ware accused her of "tormenting" her on the set of the musical TV series.

On Monday, Ware, who appeared on Glee as recurring character Jane Hayward during the show's sixth season, responded to Michele's tweet, writing back, "LMAO REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE MY FIRST TELEVISON [sic] GIG A LIVING HELL?!?!". Samantha wrote. "Cause I'll never forget".

A representative for Michele did not respond Tuesday to the L.A. Times' multiple requests for comment.

"HelloFresh does not condone racism nor discrimination of any kind", it wrote on Twitter after another user questioned its association with the actress.

"We take this very seriously, and have terminated our partnership with Lea Michele, effective immediately".

Michele issued a statement saying that while she didn't recall any incident or judged anyone by their background, she was sorry and blamed her privilege and "immaturity". We shall update you if she does.

"Girl you wouldn't let me sit at the table with the other cast members cause 'I didn't belong there, '" he tweeted.

"I apologize for my behavior and for any pain which I have caused". After seeing Samantha's message, other Glee stars began weighing in.

Lea Michele's tweet read, "George Floyd did not deserve this". I hope Michele's apology is honest although "not remembering" and saying she's sorry for how THEY perceived her behavior doesn't sound like taking 100% ownership. One of those instances, Ware said, involved telling other castmates that if she got the chance, Michele would "s-t in my wig", amongst other "traumatic microaggressions". In her 2016 memoir, Naya Rivera - who played Santana on the show - expressed her own tensions with Michele on-set.

"I'm with you my sister", he wrote in response to Ware's tweet.

She also added that she's been "reflecting on [her] own shortcomings" over the last several months, and explained that she wants to "take responsibility for [her] actions" as she prepares to welcome her first child.

"When I tweeted the other day, it was meant to be a show of support for our friends and neighbors and communities of color during this really hard time. but the responses I received to what I posted have made me also focus specifically on how my own behavior towards fellow cast members was perceived by them". The 33-year-old actress is now expecting her first child with her businessman husband, Zandy Reich.

"So I walked up to her and asked for her autograph, but she walked by and a guy came and said, 'Sorry, now's not a good time!' I was so sad!"
