One was supposedly dismissed from “Glee” due to personal reasons. Another was allegedly beating the media to the punch with news that she was pregnant.
But after apparently suffering from the work of a Twitter hacker, “Glee” stars Chris Colfer and Lea Michele are both in good spirits.
“Apparently I missed quite the INTERESTING day while aboard my flight. I’m just glad I wasn’t “killed by a fruit truck” again,” Tweeted Colfer late Thursday night.
Earlier that day, his account briefly featured the Tweet, “Due to personal issues, I have been let go from the cast of GLEE.” 20th Century Fox TV attributed the erroneous Tweet to a hacker.
Co-star Lea Michele allegedly also fell victim to a hacker. Friday morning, her account featured the message, “Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy.”
The false Tweet was quickly deleted, and the actress later and playfully responded, “I was HACKED! Guess @chriscolfer and I should have known better then [sic] to make our passwords the names of our cats:).”
Even though the Michele Tweet came a day after the false Chris Colfer post, numerous media outlets still reported the pregnancy story as if it were legitimate. It is not.
