As a result, Michele lost her Hello Fresh sponsorship. The next day, she issued an apology statement on Instagram.
She said, "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."
However, later that month, Ware told Variety that Michele "decided to threaten [her] job" because Ware was "goofing around when the camera wasn't on [her]."
Ware said, "She told me to shut my mouth. She said I don't deserve to have that job. She talked about how she has reign. And here's the thing: I completely understood that, and I was ready to be like, 'This is your show. I'm not here to be disrespectful.' But at that point, we were already past the respect and she was just abusing her power."
