Lea Michele’s partnership with HelloFresh just spoiled.
The meal-kit company announced on Tuesday that it terminated its relationship with the former “Glee” actress after Samantha Marie Ware spoke out against Michele’s alleged racist behavior.
“HelloFresh does not condone racism nor discrimination of any kind. We are disheartened and disappointed to learn of the recent claims concerning Lea Michele,” the company tweeted. “We take this very seriously, and have terminated our partnership with Lea Michele, effective immediately.”
Michele’s rep hasn’t responded to numerous requests for comment.
On Monday, Ware, who appeared on “Glee” with the 33-year-old singer-actress during Season 6, blasted Michele for making her life a “living hell” while they worked together after Michele tweeted her support for George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement.
“LMAO REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE MY FIRST TELEVISON GIG A LIVING HELL?!?! CAUSE ILL NEVER FORGET,” Ware, 28, tweeted in response. “I BELIEVE YOU TOLD EVERYONE THAT IF TOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY YOU WOULD ‘S–T IN MY WIG!’ AMONGST OTHER TRAUMATIC MICROAGRESSIONS THAT MADE ME QUESTION A CAREER IN HOLLYWOOD…”
Another former “Glee” castmate, Alex Newell, praised Ware for speaking out against Michele.
