Lea Michele, who starred in Fox's hit show Glee alongside Amber and Naya, has since deleted her Twitter account after fans slammed her for not addressing Naya Rivera's disappearance.

Fans were bullying the actress and even "wishing death" upon her.

Since Naya's disappearance, Lea has not commented on the incident.

The former Glee costars were rumored to be in a feud, which Naya denied in her 2016 memoir, Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up.

She wrote: "We are both strong willed and competitive – not just with each other but with everyone – and that's not a good mixture.

"As Santana moved from a background character to one with bigger plot lines and more screen time. I think Rachel – erm, I mean Lea – didn't like sharing the spotlight.

"If I'd complained about anyone or anything, she'd assumed I was bitching about her.

"Soon, she started to ignore me, and eventually it got to the point where she didn't say a word to me for all of season 6."

After Lea announced her pregnancy, Naya proved to their loyal fans that they both moved on from their alleged feud by congratulating her.

Naya wrote on Lea's announcement: "Aww congrats! I love this. You're going to be a great mommy!"
