Lea Michele’s former co-star and former “Glee” Matthew Morrison is speaking out about multiple allegations that she displayed toxic behavior on the set of the old television show.
The 41-year-old actor appeared on FUBAR Radio’s “Access All Areas” program, where he was asked about Michele’s alleged misbehavior, which was exposed last month by another of the show’s stars, Samantha Marie Ware.
In the episode, which airs at 6 p.m. Thursday, Morrison called the drama a “distraction from the biggest issues” happening in the world right now, according to Page Six.

Then, apparently, she threw some shade at Michele as she managed not to confirm or deny the allegations.
“You want to be a good and nice person to be around,” he said. “That’s all I’m going to say about it.”
It was the first time Morrison had spoken about the large number of allegations made against Michele. The actress previously revealed in her “Brunette Ambition” memoirs that she and Morrison dated years ago.

The drama began in May, when Michele tweeted in support of the Black Lives Matter movement after George Floyd’s death, prompting Marie Ware, a black woman, to express her frustrations about her own experiences working with the actress.
28-year-old Marie Ware criticized Michele on Twitter for causing “traumatic” memories on the set of “Glee” and making her life on the set of season 6 a “living hell.”
“LMAO REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE MY FIRST TELEVISION GIG, A HELL? BECAUSE YOU WILL NEVER FORGET, ”she wrote. “I THINK THEY TOLD EVERYONE THAT IF YOU ALSO HAD A CHANCE, YOU WOULD BE — IN MY WIG!” AMONG OTHER TRAUMATIC MICROAGGRESSIONS THAT MADE ME ASK A RACE IN HOLLYWOOD … “
In a statement posted on his Instagram, Michele said she regretted causing damage to Ware.

“What matters is that I acted clearly in a way that hurt other people,” Michele said. “One of the most important lessons of the past few weeks is that we must take the time to listen and learn about other people’s perspectives and any role we have played or anything we can do to help address the injustices they face.”
His statement continued: “If it was my privileged position and perspective that made me feel insensitive or inappropriate at times, or if it was just my immaturity and myself being unnecessarily difficult, I apologize for my behavior and any pain it may have caused. It can all grow and change and I’ve definitely used these past few months to reflect on my own shortcomings. “

Michele concluded that she is “learning” and promised to “be better” in the future.
However, the situation escalated after Michele’s apology when the “Scream Queens” actress was hit with further accusations of misbehavior by “Glee” star Heather Morris, who called her “unpleasant to work with.” . Broadway actor Gerard Canonico also called Michele “nothing more than a nightmare” while working with her on the set of Broadway’s “Spring Awakening”.
