Lea, 33, deleted her Twitter account just days after Naya‘s disappearance.
Fans were allegedly bullying the actress and even “wishing death” upon her.
Since Naya’s disappearance, Lea has not commented on the incident.
Despite the backlash Lea is receiving, some fans expressed their concern for her during this time.
One user wrote: “Listen, you don’t have to like Lea Michele but the fact that she was harassed to the point where she deactivated her social media accounts [because] of all the people saying nasty s**t to her about Naya is awful.”
Another wrote: “Lea Michele has deactivated her Twitter due to be being trolled about Naya Rivera. Has she behaved badly in the past? Yes. She’s owned it and is trying to be better. She’s also pregnant. Is it her fault that Naya’s missing? No. I’m sure she’s as upset as the rest of the Glee cast.”
The former costars, who worked on Glee together, were rumored to be in a feud, which Naya denied in her 2016 memoir, Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up.
She wrote: “We are both strong willed and competitive – not just with each other but with everyone – and that’s not a good mixture.”

“As Santana moved from a background character to one with bigger plot lines and more screen time. I think Rachel – erm, I mean Lea – didn’t like sharing the spotlight.
“If I’d complained about anyone or anything, she’d assumed I was bitching about her.
“Soon, she started to ignore me, and eventually it got to the point where she didn’t say a word to me for all of season 6.”
