Glee may have been off the air for seven years now, but that clearly hasn't dulled the harrowing experience of working alongside Lea Michele on the show if recent comments by costar Chris Colfer are any indication.

During a recent appearance on TV and radio personality Michelle Collins' SiriusXM show The Michelle Collins Show, Colfer had little love for Michele when Collins brought up her name.

When Collins invited Colfer to join her for an upcoming Michele performance as Fanny Brice in Broadway's Funny Girl, Colfer didn't just decline—he went full-on scorched earth in the most deliciously shady way possible.

See his comments below.

Obviously ribbing the actor, Collins told Colfer, "By the way, Chrissy, guess what I'm doing tonight. You should come," to which Colfer instantly interjected, his voice dripping with the sound of rolling eyes:

"Oh no, are you seeing Funny Girl?"

When Collins confirmed she was, Colfer deadpanned.

"Oh... My day suddenly just got so full."

He then tried to change the subject by saying he had recently seen the Broadway musical Six, but Collins was undeterred.

When she reiterated her invitation to Funny Girl, Colfer quipped:

"No, I can be triggered at home."

On social media, people loved Colfer's shady takedown of his former costar.










Colfer is only the latest former colleague of Michele's to publicly drag the actor who has become infamous for being difficult to work with and even downright abusive on set.

Several of her Glee costars publicly called out Michele's abuse on set, most notably Samantha Ware, who accused Michele of being racist.

Glee stars Amber Riley and Alex Newell also spoke out about Michele's racist and abusive behavior, as have actors who have worked with Michele on other projects like Yvette Nicole Brown.
