Glee's Melissa Benoist Has 'Liked' Many Tweets About the Lea Michele Allegations

Melissa Benoist is supporting her former Glee co-stars who are making allegations against Lea Michele.

The 31-year-old actress, who currently stars on The CW’s Supergirl, joined the cast of Glee in season four as Marley Rose and her first performance on the show was a duet of “New York State of Mind” with Lea.

While Melissa hasn’t spoken out with any statements of her own, she took to Twitter and pressed the like button on many tweets being made about Lea over the past day.

Samantha Ware, who appeared in the show’s final season, said that Lea made the experience a “living hell” for her. Co-stars like Alex Newell and Amber Riley both responded to the tweets using GIFs and they seemingly agreed with the comments being made.

After the allegations were made, Lea lost a partnership with a big brand that no longer wants to be associated with her.

(Melissa has also been very active during this time with speaking out about Black Lives Matter related causes. She has been sharing important resources, petitions, and she also wrote a lengthy open letter about the world she hopes to raise her child in.)

Pregnant 'Supergirl' Star Melissa Benoist Opens Up About White Privilege, Says This 'Isn't the World I Want' for Her Child

Melissa Benoist is opening up about the Black Lives Matter protests around the country following the murder of George Floyd, as well as her privilege.

“I have struggled with the words to use, I thought words didn’t belong in this fight, that I didn’t have the right to talk about the issue of privilege of being white, because I didn’t have lived experience of being a person of color in the United States. I’ve felt helpless in not knowing how to take action. I was afraid of messing up, of saying the wrong thing. No more. I made a promise to a friend of mine this week that I would not be silent anymore, that I would stand in solidarity with my voice and my actions, not just my heart. That’s not just a promise to him. This burden is too much for black people to bear alone anymore. I am beyond ashamed that they have had to for so long,” she wrote.

“I’m about to bring a child into this world, and this isn’t the world I want him to know. I want to be a part of a generation that actually ensures change, so that my son’s generation does not have to endure this kind of heartbreak, so that his generation will know the truths of white privilege and how to combat it. His parents will educate him as best we can while we simultaneously educate ourselves.”

Last year, Melissa bravely opened up about this experience.
