Chris Colfer's account was hacked on Thursday and Lea Michele was the latest victim of what appears to be a bizarre social media attack. Michele's reps deny that she is pregnant.

On Thursday, the following tweet was sent from the verified account of Chris Colfer, one of the few remaining original stars on Fox's Glee:

Due to personal issues, I have been let go from the cast of GLEE. Explanations will come shortly...

Shortly after, though, Colfer's publicist and 20th Century Fox, which produces Glee, informed BuzzFeed that his Twitter account had been hacked and he will return for the show's final season.

"We've been alerted that Chris Colfer's Twitter account has been hacked. Rumors of his dismissal from Glee could not be further from the truth," the studio said in a statement. "We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season."

On Friday, Lea Michele was hacked as well. The following tweet — which her rep confirms to BuzzFeed is false — was sent from her verified account:

Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy
