Glee’s Amber Riley Doesn’t ‘Give a S—t About This Lea Michele Thing,’ Says Focus on Black Lives Matter Issues Instead

Amber Riley is opening up about her stance on the Lea Michele drama that stemmed from her tweet following George Floyd‘s murder.

During an Instagram Live, the 34-year-old actress, who played Mercedes in Glee, revealed that Lea actually reached out to her following Samantha Ware calling her out for her actions on the set.

It was the first time Amber and Lea talked in over two years.

“I don’t give a s***, [about this],” Amber said. “People are out here dying and being murdered by police…I wish her well, I hope she has an amazing pregnancy, I hope that she has grown…”

Right now, Amber wants everyone to focus on Black Lives Matter, and it’s what we should be doing.

Several of Lea‘s co-stars from Glee and Spring Awakening have also spoken out about the horrible treatment they received from the actress.
