Lea Michele fired from Hello Fresh influencer gig after she’s accused of bullying African-American Glee costars


LEA Michele was dropped with her partnership from meal-kit company Hello Fresh after her former Glee co-star Samantha Ware accused her of “racist” behavior.

Yesterday, the 28-year-old actress accused Lea, 33, of making her life "a living hell" on-set after she paid tribute to George Floyd.

Other stars who appeared on Glee voiced support for Samantha’s claims, which led to further horror stories of working with the Broadway singer.

The actress soon began to trend on Twitter with many sharing their negative experiences with the star.

It didn’t take long before fans began to express outrage with the various brands Leah is a spokesperson for.

“@HelloFresh should probably cut ties with @LeaMichele’s only a matter of time before people stop buying your products bc you support her,” someone tweeted.

The food company quickly replied: “HelloFresh does not condone racism nor discrimination of any kind.

“We are disheartened and disappointed to learn of the recent claims concerning Lea Michele.

“We take this very seriously, and have ended our partnership with Lea Michele, effective immediately.”

Hello Fresh repeated the same message to multiple users who expressed their disapproval for the partnership.

In response to their former influencer’s alleged past behavior, the delivery service also said they would get in contact with “black influencers, creators and experts” to work with in the future.
