Lea Michele looks unbothered by her former Glee costar Chris Colfer’s diss as she smiles on her way to Broadway

Lea Michele did not let getting dissed by her former Glee costar Chris Colfer rain on her parade as she headed to a matinee performance of Funny Girl in New York City.

Just hours after the 32-year-old actor threw some serious shade at her when asked if Michele would be checking out her musical, the Scream Queens star, 36, appeared in high spirits as she smiled and waved at onlookers on Tuesday.

The mother-of-one, who welcomed her son Ever with husband Zandy Reich in 2020, looked incredibly chic in a black vest, matching knee-high boots and an olive green miniskirt.

Despite her happy demeanor, Michele was most likely reeling from Colfer’s latest jab at her expense, more than two years after she came under fire for alleged bullying behavior on the set of Glee. 

While appearing on the The Michelle Collins Show, Colfer joked his ‘day suddenly just got so full’ when the host encouraged him to go to Funny Girl with her. 

After Michelle asked if he was not seeing Funny Girl while in the city, he replied: ‘No, I can be triggered at home.’

Lea has been receiving glowing reviews for her portrayal of comedienne Fanny Brice in Funny Girl ever since taking over the role following Beanie Feldstein’s departure over the summer.

Funny Girl is a musical with score by Jule Styne, lyrics by Bob Merrill, and book by Isobel Lennart, that first opened on Broadway in 1964 and starred Barbra Streisand in the lead role.

Chris isn’t the only former cast member from Glee opting to not watch Lea on the show.

Last month, Kevin McHale admitted he wouldn’t be checking out the musical either. 

Speaking with E! News the actor, 34, admitted ‘I don’t have any plans [to see Funny Girl].’

He added that he hasn’t spoken to Michele – who succeeded Beanie Feldstein, 29, in the production earlier this month – in a long time.

However he acknowledged Lea’s talent and star power elsewhere in the interview as well.

‘She’s obviously extremely, extremely talented,’ he gushed in his sit-down with the news outlet.

‘I’m sure she’s f***ing phenomenal in it. Are you kidding me? She could do the role in her sleep,’ he praised.

Lea landed at the center of controversy in 2020 after former Glee actress Samantha Ware alleged the actress made her time on the show a ‘living hell.’

After Lea shared a post responding to the death of George Floyd, Samantha tweeted: ‘Remember when you made my first television gig a living hell?!?!… ‘Cause I’ll never forget… I believe you told everyone that if you had the opportunity you would ‘s*** in my wig!’ amongst other traumatic microaggressions that made me question a career in Hollywood.’

The tweet opened the floodgates and numerous other stars came forward with their own recollections of alleged bad behavior from Lea.
