I know, it sounds ridiculous. But Lea Michele might be illiterate.
At least that’s what the One More Thing podcast is claiming.
Hosts Jaye Hunt and Robert Ackerman were talking about Lea’s Glee co-star, Naya Rivera. Specifically, they were talking about Naya’s book Sorry Not Sorry where she addressed her feud with Lea in several parts. They were curious as to why Lea had not addressed these feud allegations when one of them said, jokingly, “Maybe Lea can’t read.”
But since then, it has turned into a true conspiracy.
On July 2017, the duo went FB Live on their show’s page to present their evidence that Lea Michele can’t read. The video is 40 minutes long, but you can fast forward to 4:38 where the theory actually begins. Just watch the video for 10-15 minutes and you may end up being a believe yourself.
The One More Thing team provides some pretty solid evidence like her overuse of emojis as captions (you know, because she can’t use words):
The fact that she only works on Ryan Murphy shows (he’s feeding her lines, sheeple!):
Her “book” is really just her Instagram feed (ALL PICTURES):
Though the video is several months old, it went viral over the weekend.

40 minutes may seem like a long time to invest watching this FB Live video, but it’s honestly worth every second.
And if she really can read, why hasn’t she gone onto FB Live to read live comments? Because maybe she can’t!
