'Glee' extra who was fired for tweeting a spoiler opens up
“I had no idea it would blow up like this, I do regret it,” film student Nicole Crowther told a Los Angeles Times blog on Monday. Crowther was referring to the outrage that swept the Gleekosphere after she spoiled the identities of McKinley High’s prom king and queen via Twitter. Her tweet drew the ire of Glee fans as well as series co-creator Brad Falchuk, who chastised Crowther on his own Twitter by writing, “hope you’re qualified to do something besides work in entertainment.” In her defense, Crowther told the Times that though she’s appeared in several episodes of Glee as an extra, she was not even on set when the prom scene was filmed. Instead, she claimed that she heard the spoiler from another extra — and that she had no idea it was true until Falchuk responded to her message with angry tweets. As a result of the incident, Crowther was told that she’d never work on another Fox program again; she’s also been suspended from her extra casting agencies for two to three weeks.
