Last week, Glee creator Ryan Murphy announced that three of the shows’ stars would be leaving when their characters graduated from high school: Chris Colfer (Kurt), Cory Monteith (Finn), and Lea Michele (Rachel). While Murphy insinuated that he had discussed the decision with the cast. Turned out that wasn’t the case: Chris reportedly found out he lost his job when he read about it on Twitter.
However, Chris isn’t the only star who got bad news via the media. Several other stars also found out about show cancellations or firings through newspaper articles or Twitter messages.
