Chris Colfer Is Not Leaving ‘Glee,’ Twitter Account Was Hacked
‘Glee‘ star Chris Colfer shocked the world when he seemingly announced today, July 3, that he has been let go from the show due to “personal issues.” But now, his rep is speaking out to say that it is not true — and his Twitter account has been hacked.
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Colfer’s rep reportedly told the site that his account has been hacked and that he will indeed be back for the show’s sixth and final season. Phew!
Colfer immediately sent fans into a frenzy just a short while ago when he seemingly tweeted:
Due to personal issues, I have been let go from the cast of GLEE. Explanations will come shortly…

Of course, fans were left stunned, considering they had been watching Colfer’s character Kurt since the show’s inception in 2009.
Colfer recently spoke to TVLine about how he hopes his character finds happiness in the final season — which fortunately, we are all now going to get to see.
“I just want to see [Kurt] happy…. I hope to see him find validation within himself,” he said at the time. “I think that would be a great lesson for the kids watching, that you have to find approval and happiness within yourself. You don’t get it from someone else.”
We’re all about finding happiness within yourself, but right now, we’re finding a lot of joy in the fact that Chris Colfer will indeed be in ‘Glee’s’ final season.
