Right after Chris Colfer’s Twitter account got hacked yesterday, Michele is now the next victim of the Glee cast to be hit with an Internet prankster.
This morning, the actress made a “special announcement” on her Twitter page, tweeting that she was pregnant with a baby boy. It was a little convincing, especially since pictures of Michele and her new boyfriend Matthew Paetz circulated the internet yesterday.
While this would have been a quick and bold move for the new couple, Michele’s rep confirmed to TVLine that the announcement was fake and that the actress was also a victim of a hacker. The tweet has since been deleted.
Although Michele hasn’t mentioned anything about being hacked, Colfer did take to Twitter to make jokes. Just yesterday, a hacker posted on his account saying that the actor was going to leave Glee for personal reasons.
Apparently I missed quite the INTERESTING day while aboard my flight. I’m just glad I wasn’t “killed by a fruit truck” again.

While we’re glad that Colfer can take a joke, that makes two hacks in two days! Perhaps the Glee cast should increase their security settings?
