Lea Michele Finally Addresses Rumors That She Can’t Read In Hilarious TikTok

Lea Michele can’t read. At least that’s what everybody has been aledging about the former Glee star for the past couple of years. The conspiracy theory began when a YouTuber made an hours-long conspiracy video documenting his theory that Lea Michele never learned to read.  The illiteracy rumors have recently increased in popularity since Lea Michele was cast in the Broadway musical Funny Girl. She began her run as Fanny Brice on September 4th but sadly tested positive for COVID soon afterward, forcing her to stay home for ten days. In those ten days, she began a stint as a TikToker. 

Her first TikTok video featured her dancing and lipsyncing to the song Don’t Rain On My Parade. In the comments, people read her for not being able to read. Her second TikTok, however, perhaps marked the first time Lea Michele has responded to these rumors in a humourous and “in on the joke” way.
