"You also follow other people’s pets on Instagram."
Kevin McHale has revealed that the recent Glee hackings were actually very “serious”.
Earlier this month, Chris Colfer’s Twitter account was hacked and a message was posted suggesting that he had been fired from the show, while the following day Lea Michele’s account was hijacked to post a tweet claiming that she was pregnant.
Speaking to Digital Spy to promote his new E4 panel show Virtually Famous, McHale admitted that he has “no idea” what has been going on.
"I’m hoping I’m not interesting enough for people to try to hack me!" he joked.
However, McHale - who confirmed that he has changed his password since the hackings - admitted that the invasions were more worrying than they seemed.
"I talked to Chris, and it was this super-serious thing where it wasn’t just his Twitter they hacked," he said. "It was everything. I feel like on the surface it seemed like, ‘Oh, someone hacked his Twitter’, but it got quite serious and he had to change everything.
"I don’t know why people do it, it’s stupid, but luckily people know it was just somebody who was acting insane and hacked into his account."
However, McHale admitted that the cast initially weren’t sure whether or not Colfer had really been sacked, saying: “I saw that tweet and one of the other cast members texted me what he tweeted like, ‘Is this true?’ I’m like, ‘I don’t know! I don’t know why you would tweet it…’ I mean, I don’t know why he would tweet before actually telling any of us!”
I have a very, very special guest that I would like to bring out, if I will.
