Lea Michele is nothing but a "despicable, horrible human being," her former Broadway co-star said in a recent interview.

Craig Ramsay made the blistering remarks about the former "Glee" star, who he starred alongside in the 2000s production "Fiddler on the Roof," on "Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef" Tuesday.

"I just didn't want to hear Lea Michele's name in this interview at all," Ramsay was cited saying by USA Today. "I think she's a despicable, horrible human being. I think she has lost touch with reality."

Ramsay stated that he thought Michele was "one of the most entitled people" he had ever come across in showbiz. He recalled the day his co-star got the call about being cast in "Glee," which ran from 2009 to 2015, and described how a sense of entitlement took over her whole body.

"She was possessed with this," he said. "I cared for her greatly, but then the amount of entitlement that came right at that moment, I've never seen the likes."

Ramsay added that, although Michele was a talented performer, "none of that means anything if people don't want to work with you."

The interview comes as Michele faces continued backlash following accusations that she made a former "Glee" co-star's experience on the set of the high school musical television show a "living hell."

Taking to Twitter, Samantha Marie Ware, who is Black, called Michelle out after she tweeted about the killing of George Floyd.

Responding to Michele's tweet, Ware asked if she remembered taunting her during production on the series in 2015.

"LMAO REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE MY FIRST TELEVISON GIG A LIVING HELL?!?! CAUSE ILL NEVER FORGET," Ware wrote. "I BELIEVE YOU TOLD EVERYONE THAT IF TOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY YOU WOULD "S--T IN MY WIG!" AMONGST OTHER TRAUMATIC MICROAGRESSIONS THAT MADE ME QUESTION A CAREER IN HOLLYWOOD..."

Michele was dumped by her major sponsors and had no choice but to apologize publicly for her actions.

"I clearly acted in ways which hurt other people," she wrote in a statement to Instagram. "I apologize for my behavior and for any pain which I have caused," she added.
