Samantha Ware has responded to Lea Michele’s controversial apology.

Earlier this week, the 28-year-old accused Lea of making her life a “living hell” on the set of Glee – and the actress later apologised for her actions in a statement posted on Instagram.

After Lea shared her apology on social media, Samantha responded by sharing a link to a GoFundMe page for James Scurlock’s family – after he was shot and killed during a recent Black Lives Matter protest in Omaha.

Samantha wrote: “Perceived? Purcieved? Purse? Open your purse??????????????”

The actress, who played Jane Hayward on the sixth season of Glee, was referring to a particular passage in Lea’s apology.

Lea wrote: “Whether it was my privileged position and perspective that caused me to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times or whether it was just my immaturity and me just being unnecessarily difficult, I apologize for my behaviour and for any pain which I have caused.”

The actress shared a public apology after Samantha claimed Lea bullied her on set, after she showed her support for the Black Lives Matter movement – following the tragic death of George Floyd.

Taking to Twitter, Lea tweeted: “George Floyd did not deserve this. This was not an isolated incident and it must end.”

Samantha then re-posted Lea’s tweet and wrote: “LMAO REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE MY FIRST TELEVISON GIG A LIVING HELL?!?! CAUSE ILL NEVER FORGET.” [sic]

“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…,” she added.

Alex Newell, Amber Riley and Dabier Snell, who also starred in Glee, reacted to the tweet in support of Samantha.

Shortly after Samantha’s tweet went viral, a number of celebrities unfollowed Lea on Instagram – including Ariana Grande and Keke Palmer, who have both worked with her in the past.

Lea, who played Rachel Berry in Glee, has also lost a major brand deal with HelloFresh over the backlash.
