Is Lea Michele illiterate?

CAST your mind back to the late noughties and fans of Glee will well remember actress Lea Michele.

However, since the show ended, her career has been blighted by controversy, and in 2022 she was trending on Twitter for being "illiterate".

What are the Lea Michele illiterate rumors?

Rumors about Lea Michele’s supposed inability to read and write all started following a live session on Facebook in 2017 by podcasters Jaye Hunt and Robert Ackerman.

In an episode titled LEA MICHELE IS ILLITERATE, the duo came up with a theory to try and prove the Glee star

They further released what they thought was “evidence” in another video.

It apparently started off as a joke due to an excerpt from the late Naya Rivera's book, Sorry Not Sorry.

In the book, Naya detailed how Lea would refuse to improvise her lines.

And, according to Jaye and Robert, Lea never shared her thoughts about what Naya wrote, but simply encouraged others to read the book for themselves.

Another one of the theories pointed out how the actress uses more emojis than words in her social media posts.

The conspiracy theory caused the internet into meltdown, and in April 2022, it started again.
