Craig Ramsay has slammed his co-star Lea Michele for being a “horrible” human being while they were working together on Broadway. Ramsay has joined the growing list of celebrities who have accused Michele of making their lives miserable when they worked with her.

In the latest episode of the “Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef” podcast, Ramsay opened up about his own experience with the actress. The star started his statement by saying that he did not want to hear Michele’s name during the interview because she is a “despicable” human being.  

Ramsay also revealed that they worked together on a theater production called “Fiddler On The Roof” in the 2000s and that was where he witnessed the real side of the actress. 

“I just did not want to hear Lea Michele's name in this interview. At all! I think she is a despicable, horrible human being. I think she has lost touch with reality. We were in 'Fiddler' together,” Ramsay said.

Later in the interview, Ramsay noted that he was present when Michele got the call for “Glee.” He shared that as soon as she got the part in the series, her behavior changed. He claimed that the “Scream Queens” star got an ample amount of “entitlement” after getting the part and moving to Los Angeles. However, he admitted that Michele is undeniably a talented actress.

''I was there when she got the call of, 'I got Glee,' and I think the entitlement just came over her body. She was possessed with this and from that moment on - cause she moved to LA the same moment I did from New York - and I cared for her greatly, but the amount of entitlement. And she is talented, do not get me wrong. She is more talented than the gigs she did the last ten years, but that does not matter if no one wants to work with you,” Ramsay said.

Ramsay’s comments come after a number of Michele’s former “Glee” co-stars called her out on social media. Samantha Marie Ware recently opened up about why she felt the need to call out the actress on Twitter. In an interview with Variety, Ware noted that Michele did not like her from day one and it was very “evident.”

Ware explained that Michele would be quite aggressive with her and would stare at her while she was shooting her scenes. Unaware that she could file a formal complaint, Ware never reported Michele's actions to the network or studio.

Other celebrities like Keith Powell, Heather Morris, Gerard Canonico, and Aviva Drescher have also criticized Michele for her behavior.

Michele has since issued an apology on social media.

“Whether it was my privileged position and perspective that caused me to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times or whether it was just my immaturity and me just being unnecessarily difficult, I apologize for my behavior and for any pain which I have caused,” she wrote.
