A tense moment from an interview with Glee stars Lea Michele and Amber Riley has gone viral following allegations of bullying from many of Michele's former castmates, particularly towards people of colour.
The clip appears to have been taken from a 2011 interview with Celebs.com, in which Michele and Riley are asked about the best and worst thing about being on tour with Glee.
Michele replies that everyone "really does get along, thank God," and gestures to Riley, saying "this is our extended, new family". All the while, Riley looks on stony-faced, occasionally cracking a tight-lipped smile.
"The tension in this video makes me itchy," wrote Twitter user @bjbjonez who shared the clip, prompting a wave of similarly uncomfortable viewers to chime in.
"Omg my skin is crawling," said another.
Earlier this month, a chorus of voices spoke out against Michele's on-set behaviour after she tweeted about the Black Lives Matter movement.
In response to Michele's tweet, Samantha Marie Ware claimed Michele had told coworkers she would "shit in Ware's wig" if given the chance while on the Glee set.
Dabier Snell, who also had a part on Glee, recalled a time when the actor wouldn't let her sit at the table with other cast members because she "didn't belong there".
The accusations from Michele's black former co-stars continued to come thick and fast, even after Michele penned an apology admitting she had "clearly acted in ways that hurt other people".
Imia Edwards alleged Michele had burped in her face and stomped on her foot during her time as a background actor on Glee, while many others claimed the star often referred to extras as "cockroaches".
