Several other stars from the show weighed on the claims. For example, Matthew Morrison spoke about the allegations during an interview at FUBAR Radio Access to all areas, and Heather Morris spoke out on social media.
“Let me be very clear,” wrote the 33-year-old actress who played Brittany Pierce in a note posted on Twitter. “Hate is a disease in America that we are trying to cure, so I would never want hatred to be spread to others. Was it uncomfortable to work with? Very much that Lea treats others with the disease.” Disrespect that she did as long as she did, I think she should be called. And yet it is also up to us, because it is something else that we learn with the others to let it run for so long without saying it. But at the moment it is implied that she is a racist and although I do not comment on her beliefs we can assume and you know what happens if we all assume … ”
Amber Riley also discussed the allegations during an interview Danielle Young.
“I’m not going to say that Lea Michele is racist,” said the 34-year-old actress who played Mercedes Jones. “I’m not saying that. That was the assumption based on what’s going on in the world and it happened to a black person. I’m not going to say that she’s racist.”
She also made it clear that she “said nothing about this Lea Michele thing” and noticed that “people are dying out here”.
“If it’s not about defusing the police, prosecuting killer cops or Black Lives Matter, or my EP that comes out … I don’t care if it’s not about these things,” she added.
Michele was silent, but returned to social media last week.
