“Glee” stars Lea Michele and Chris Colfer both had their Twitter accounts hacked, with Michele’s account delivering the false news that she is pregnant, reports EW.com’s Inside TV.
The false tweet said, “Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy.” The post was quickly removed, and her representatives confirmed the tweet was a hoax and that she had been hacked.
The hack comes a day after fellow “Glee” star Chris Colfer had his Twitter account briefly hacked, with his feed reading that he was being “let go” from the program because of “personal issues.”
“Is the proximity between the two prank tweets a coincidence, or is someone systematically targeting ‘Glee’ on Twitter? It’s unclear for now, but one thing’s certain — until everything gets sorted out, it might be a good idea to take any ‘Glee’-related news breaking online with a grain of salt,” the story notes.
