It seems that The Glee and Scream Queens star Lea Michele is taking a step back from social media. Recently she has deleted her Twitter account after alleged bullying over Naya Rivera’s disappearance.
Lea has deactivated her Twitter account on Sunday without saying a single word. Her fans are now coming to the actress’s defense after this incident. However, her other social media accounts like Instagram is still active and running. It seems that she left Twitter due to allegedly being bullied over Naya Rivera’s disappearance.
One Twitter user wrote, “Lea Michele deactivated because people were commenting on her posts ‘it should’ve been you instead of naya’ y’all are f–king sick”.
Another person twitted, “Lea Michele has deactivated her twitter due to be being trolled about Naya Rivera. Has she behaved badly in the past? Yes. She’s owned it and is trying to be better. She’s also pregnant. Is it her fault that Naya’s missing? No. I’m sure she’s as upset as the rest of the Glee cast.”
After Lea’s Twitter deactivation, Amber Riley posted about Lea. “Show some respect. All our energy is going toward helping find Naya and praying for her safe return and her family….No one owes anyone online performance of grief. This is very real and devastating. Focus on Naya and her family. Not us. We don’t matter right now.”
Lea issued an apology on her Instagram account. She wrote, “One of the most important lessons of the last few weeks is that we need to take the time to listen and learn about other people’s perspectives and any role we have played or anything we can do to help address the injustices that they face”.
She concluded, “I am a couple of months from becoming a mother and I know I need to keep working to better myself and take responsibility for my actions, so that I can be a real role model for my child and so I can pass along my lessons and mistakes, so that they can learn from me…I listened to these criticisms and I am learning and while I am very sorry, I will be better in the future from this experience.”
