Lea Michele Reacts to Viral Illiteracy Conspiracy Theory

Rumors that Lea Michele is secretly illiterate have been taking the Internet by storm this week. (Yeah, we can’t believe it either.)

The 31-year-old Glee star took to Twitter on Thursday (March 22) to set the record straight (by reading and writing).

Here’s how the rumor started: Superfans Jaye Hunt and Robert Ackerman filmed a Facebook Live video with “evidence” claiming that Lea cannot read – though they reportedly made it “with love” and “in a spirit of fun” – and it recently gained traction on social media.

The fans stated that Lea only had “to learn, like, four words” for her role in Ragtime, adding that producer Ryan Murphy, who casted her for Glee and Scream Queens, helped her learn all of her lines.
