Glee's Iqbal Theba Says He Wasn't Mistreated By Lea Michele

Iqbal Theba, who played the role of Principal Figgins on Glee from 2009-2015, is speaking out about the Lea Michele allegations that have been spreading across the Internet for days.

The 56-year-old actor posted two tweets in response to what has been said about Lea.

“Lot of people r assuming that @LeaMichele mistreated me. Let me state it clearly that I was never mistreated by her. And if some of the cast were treated badly then she has apologized for it which is wonderful. But being called a racist is too heavy & unfair a burden 4 most of us, specially in these troubled times. So, please be compassionate, careful & responsible before we accuse anyone of this horrible thing called racism. I love each & everyone of my fellow cast members from our great show @OfficialGLEEtv Be safe & be well. Much love,” he tweeted.
