‘Glee’ extra Nicole Crowther was fired from the hit show for tweeting spoilers about the upcoming prom episode, specifically, who would be prom queen and king.
The somewhat cryptic message was understandable to fans of the show, and ‘Glee’ co-creator Brad Falchuk was less than pleased about the leak. So he went off on the actress, which ultimately resulted in Crowther deactivating her Twitter account and getting the boot from the Fox show.
Those Gleeks don’t mess around.
SPOILER ALERT: Do NOT click on the upcoming link if you prefer to be in the dark. Read the tweet here.
A series of angry messages from Gleeks bombarded the micro-blogging site after Crowther sent out the spoilerific tweet, which prompted Falchuk to speak out.
‘Who are you to spoil something talented people have spent months to create? Hope you’re qualified to do something besides work in entertainment,’ he tweeted to the regular extra.
Ouch. And so Crowther was fired from the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning Fox show.
‘They are not doing reshoots because of my careless mistake so shut up haters and leave me alone. Grow up and get a life,’ was her final tweet before deactivating her account.
However, a source close to the show said standard Screen Actors Guild day-player union contracts used by the show do not contain non-disclosure agreements, which lay out punishments when plot secrets are blabbed, so the legal ramifications are less serious.
But still, she better watch her back or else she might be thrown up against a locker or get a slushie to the face. Just saying.
