How Did The Illiterate Hoax Begin? The Illiterate Hoax is brought to an end by Lea Michele.



One of the craziest celebrity rumours is that Lea Michele is illiterate, to which the actress has given a brilliant response. Even though rumours don’t always make sense, they create a buzz that’s impossible to ignore. Lea Michele had to deal with that as well. But how did the rumour about Lea Michele being illiterate start?

It was rumoured that Lea Michele was illiterate.

If the rumours are to be believed, they began after Jaye Hunt and Robert Ackerman held a live Facebook session. The actress Lea’s incapacity was mocked during that live session, and the whole thing went viral on the internet.

Because she used more emojis in her post, it was assumed that Lea was illiterate. “Lea Michele Is Illiterate” was the title of the two podcasters’ episode. Lea’s social media posts with simply emojis were used as evidence in the video they took. Lea, on the other hand, reacted to the rumour afterwards and it was great from her perspective.

Not to mention, the whole rumour started a long time ago. It reappeared on the internet before Lea was seen talking about the HBO documentary Spring Awakening: Those You’ve Known.
