"Glee" fans expressed genuine worry that the show is cursed after show's alum Naya Rivera went missing in Lake Piru. Others think it's inappropriate for the situation.


On Wednesday, "Glee" star Naya Rivera, 33, went on a boat ride with her son, Josey, four. The pair reportedly went to Lake Piru in the Los Padres National Forest in Ventura County, California.

About three hours later, Josey was found in the boat alone. This isn't the first time that tragedy has struck the former cast of the musical series, "Glee." Fan reactions to the perceived curse are found below.

According to ET, Rivera and her son rented out a boat around 1 pm. Hours later when Josey was found alone, the Ventura Country Sheriff's Department began searching right away with drones, divers, and helicopters.


They stopped on Wednesday and made plans to resume the search on Thursday. "Glee" co-star Harry Shum Jr. was one of the first to take to Instagram and share prayers for a good outcome.


Singer Demi Lovato, who once guest-starred on the show, did the same and included a candle photo. Iqbal Theba, Victoria Justice, Andy Cohen, and more also reacted and shared well wishes.


Rivera's ex-fiancé Big Sean showed his support by liking tweets regarding the ongoing search. He also liked tweets from fans encouraging others to call in and tell the department not to take a break from searching.


As for fans of the show, many of them have purported the idea that "Glee" is a cursed show. One person said the cast members "have experienced an unusually high level of misfortune."


Many people compared the situation to the 1982 film, "Poltergeist," which saw two of its youngest main cast members lose their lives before the third installment of the horror franchise.


While most people are serious, others still see it as inappropriate to the situation at hand. One person who got quite angry, wrote, "Stop saying 'Glee' is cursed. It's not [expletive] funny."


"Glee" lasted from 2009 to 2015. Yet horrific incidents with the cast began before the show even ended. It started in 2013 when Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson, died at 31.


Monteith had been battling substance abuse. His body was discovered at his Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel room in Vancouver. There was no evidence of foul play.



In 2018, Mark Salling, who played Noah Puckerman on "Glee," took his own life at 35. In the months leading up to his passing, he pled guilty to charges which heavily impacted his career.

His body was found in the woods close to a baseball field in Los Angeles. He left behind both parents and a brother who requested privacy in a statement.



In June 2020, the alleged "Glee" curse showed up not in violence but in a feud that supposedly existed between cast members Samantha Ware and Lea Michele.

After Michele tweeted in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, Ware called Michele out for allegedly treating her horribly when the two worked together. Others also spoke up about Michele's behavior on set.
