The actor won the 2011 Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a Television Series for his performance as Kurt Hummel in the hit TV series Glee. This was such a full circle moment for Colfer, and who better to share in his joy than his Glee co-stars?

Michele who played Rachel Berry on Glee was on seat to throw her full support behind Colfer on his big night. She cheered endlessly for the actor who got emotional on stage during his speech.

Are Those Fake Tears?

However, a TikTok video has resurfaced from user @mahalahoop, who relieved Colfer's moment in the spotlight, and showed Michele who apparently let the fake tears flow as soon as the camera fell on her.

Her Full Reaction

The first cut showed the actress watching her co-star in absolute wonder with her hands on her chest, but this didn't last long as seconds later, she began to take heavy deep breaths and covered her mouth with her hands before wiping the tears from her eyes.

Other viewers in this user's comment section agreed that she was faking her emotions to steal the spotlight or "clout chase."

One user commented, "The shortness of breath for me." Another added, "That girl practices her acting skills every moment she gets."

Wrong Place, Wrong Time

One more comment caught our eye where a user pointed out that the actress' emotional reaction came after Colfer cracked a joke that made the audience laugh, which meant the tears were unnecessary.

People handle emotions differently, so maybe Michele was overwhelmed with admiration and gratitude.

A Narcissist

The clip resurfaced in the wake of the narcissist accusation going around by a Glee crew member in a three-part docuseries, The Price of Glee. The actress has been accused of being overbearing on set in the past, so this doesn't come as a surprise.

Another Accusation

Michele was also condemned recently for shoving Stranger Things star, Sadie Sink, so she could take center stage while they jointly appeared for The Tonight Show.

Fire From Former Colleagues

These scenarios come after her former Glee co-stars leveled serious allegations against her attitude on the show set.

"She demeaned the crew and threatened to have people fired if she was in anyway displeased."

Samantha Ware

Ware, who starred alongside Michele in the sixth season of Glee, accused the actor of "traumatic microaggressions" as she responded to a tweet made by Michele in the wake of George Floyd's death.

"...I believe you told everyone that if you had the opportunity you would shit in my wig amongst other traumatic microaggressions that made me question a career in Hollywood."

Dabier Snell

Another actor who briefly appeared on the fourth season of the show accused her of not letting him sit at a table with the other cast members because he "didn't belong there."

Word From Colfer

Colfer didn't tie his tongue last October when he was asked if he would watch Michele in Funny Girl on Broadway while in New York City.

No Triggers

The star who appeared on Michael Collins show replied, "My day suddenly just got so full." and also added that he wouldn't be attending to watch her. "No, I can be triggered at home."

No Bad Blood...In Public

While they've both hidden their dislike for each other under wraps, especially in public, that comment from Colfer bolsters loads of accusations made by Michele's co-stars while Glee aired from 2009-2015.

It's Not Like That!


However, three people have surfaced to defend and (wait for it) criticize Michele. They include Iqbal Theba, who played Principal Figgins on the show.

The actor had this to say.

"Lot of people are assuming that @LeaMichele mistreated me, Let me state it clearly that I was never mistreated by her. And if some of the cast were treated badly then she had apologized for it which is wonderful."

Easy With The Accusations

Iqbal continued that the accusation that Michele is racist is too much of a burden for anyone to bear, and everyone should be more compassionate, careful and responsible, especially when accusing people.

Lea Michele Wasn't Discriminatory...but

A source, however, claimed that the actress was never discriminatory towards her castmates, but she was self-obsessed with an aggressive personality which made people misunderstand her.

Lea Apologized

The actress has since apologized in an Instagram statement following Wares' tweet and claimed she didn't remember any of such happening at that time, but it was clear she hurt people in many other ways she had acted.
