Is Lea Michele Secretly Illiterate? The Actress Sets the Record Straight on Twitter

"Loved READING this tweet and wanted to WRITE you back," tweeted Michele after fans claimed she can't read

Lea Michele hit back Thursday at rumors circulating the internet this week that she’s illiterate by, well, reading and writing.

On Wednesday, a couple fans filmed a Facebook Live video with “evidence” claiming the actress, 31, cannot read — and some corners of the Twitter-verse began to buy into the theory.

Superfans Jaye Hunt and Robert Ackerman half-jokingly pointed out that Michele only had “to learn, like, four words” for her role in Ragtime and also theorized producer Ryan Murphy helped cover for her after she crossed over to TV.

“Ryan Murphy knows the secret, and she only works with him because he reads her her lines and she remembers them,” says Hunt in the video about the Glee and Scream Queens creator.

After the rumors began to take off on social media, Michele set the record straight with her usual sense of humor.

“Loved READING this tweet and wanted to WRITE you back,” she wrote back to a fan who said Michele must be “laughing her head off right now.”

“Literally laughing out loud at all this. Love you!!!” she continued, adding kiss and heart emojis.

The 31-year-old entertainer has been vacationing in Hawaii with her loved ones this week, including mom Edith Sarfati.

While soaking up the sun, the Glee actress has rocked several swimsuits — including a neon one-piece and skimpy black bikini — and shown off her toned figure.

“Never leaving,” she captioned one snap of herself posing in paradise.
