The fan suggested that Hilarie‘s co-star Chad Michael Murray had something to do with her exit from the show. The 39-year-old actor also left the show at the same time as Hilarie.

“@HilarieBurton said that her departure was unceremonious and we can blame that on Chad tbh at least the Chad from back then. I’m assuming and hope he’s grown up now but wtf,” the fan tweeted.

Hilarie then responded, clarifying that her exit had nothing to do with Chad.

““I’m not sure where your info is coming from, but Chad had nothing to do with my leaving. We were both treated badly, and he defended me. I so appreciate your support, but I just wanted to clarify that Chad was my teammate. My bosses were the s–ts,” Hilarie tweeted back.

The fan then wrote back, saying that they clearly “read some misinformation” about the situation.

Hilarie responded again, tweeting, “Babe, no worries. I’ve heard that rumor so many times over the years. I just correct it because I care about our OTH fam and don’t want anyone carrying around false baggage. Thank you for caring!! Xo.”

In a recent interview, Hilarie addressed this one inappropriate storyline that took place on One Tree Hill.
