Former ‘Glee’ star Sammie Ware ‘affected’ after Lea Michele cast in ‘Funny Girl’

Former “Glee” star Sammie Ware is not happy about Lea Michele being cast as the new lead in Broadway’s “Funny Girl.” “Yes, I’m online today. Yes, I see y’all. Yes, I care,” the actress, 30, tweeted on Monday. “Yes, I’m affected. Yes, I’m human. Yes, I’m Black. Yes, I was abused. Yes, my dreams were tainted.” Ware — who previously called out Michele for mistreatment on the Ryan Murphy series — concluded, “Yes, Broadway upholds whiteness. Yes, Hollywood does the same. Yes, silence is complicity. Yes, I’m loud. Yes, I’d do it again.” A rep for Michele, 35, did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment. She was chosen to take over the role of Fanny Brice after Beanie Feldstein announced her early departure from the production on Sunday. “Playing Fanny Brice on Broadway has been a lifelong dream of mine and doing so for the last few months has been a great joy and true honor,” Feldstein, 29, wrote on social media of her Broadway run, which began in April.
