Former “Glee” producer Marti Noxon has waded into the Lea Michele bullying controversy — and revealed there were many “Glee” stars who were just as bad on set.
In a now-deleted tweet, Noxon wrote, “Re: @LeaMichele. Hey, I’m all for calling out bad behavior and even for some schadenfreude when that behavior is punished. That said, on GLEE there were LOTS of bad actors. Who were NOT women. People in the industry know who I’m talking about. Why aren’t we calling them out?”
She added, “It seems to me that women are the first to go under the bus. But a lot of males get away with being the bullies-in-chief. How come we let them get away with it? Maybe it’s because as long as they earn someone money, they get a pass.”
Noxon, who found fame as a writer and executive producer on ‘”Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” was quizzed by a follower to name names, but replied, “I’m going to leave that to my male allies. It’s their turn.”
Shortly after posting the message, Noxon deleted the tweets, although it was captured in a screenshot by Page Six.
Michele, 33, who’s expecting her first child, was forced to apologize on Wednesday after being accused by “Glee’” co-star Samantha Ware of making her time on the show a “living hell”.
The exchange began after Michele posted a message on Twitter on Friday, writing: “George Floyd did not deserve this. This was not an isolated incident and it must end,” she wrote. Michele included the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter.
