When Glee‘s Chris Colfer’s Twitter account was hacked fans went crazy. Why? Because the hacker tweeted that Colfer would be leaving Glee and that was hit with a big, resounding, NOPE, from Twitter-land, which then carried over to internet-land as a whole.
His manager has sense released a statement that he will indeed be returning for the final season of the show on Fox. The actor has already signed a contract so that he can complete season six. The actor, on a mid-Atlantic flight, was unable to update Twitter due to lack of Wi-Fi.
Studio 20th Century Fox Television also released a statement letting fans and viewers know that he will be on the next season of Glee. “We’ve been alerted that Chris Colfer’s Twitter account has been hacked. Rumors of his dismissal from Glee could not be further from the truth. We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season.” The offending tweet has since been removed.
But apparently, Colfer wasnt’ the only Glee star whose Twitter account was hacked. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lea Michele’s account was also hacked, tweeting a pregnancy announcement. Lea’s publicist confirmed that the tweet was due to a hack.
Colfer himself returned to his Twitter account to renounce the previous tweet, something he wasn’t able to do at first due to his lack of internet access.
And there you have it. Chris will be back. Lea is maybe not pregnant (hey, the publicist said she’d been hacked. I didn’t hear a pregnancy renunciation.) All is right with the world.
