In a series of since-deleted tweets, which were screencapped by Page Six, Marti said that some of the male cast members on the show should be called out for their behavior as well.
“Re: @LeaMichele. Hey, I’m all for calling out bad behavior and even for some schadenfreude when that behavior is punished. That said, on GLEE there were LOTS of bad actors. Who were NOT women. People in the industry know who I’m talking about. Why aren’t we calling them out?” Marti tweeted.
She added, “It seems to me that women are the first to go under the bus. But a lot of males get away with being the bullies-in-chief. How come we let them get away with it? Maybe it’s because as long as they earn someone money, they get a pass.”
When someone asked Marti to name names, she said she is “going to leave that to my male allies. It’s their turn.”
Marti kicked off her career on the beloved shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. She has since worked on such shows as Mad Men, Private Practice, UnREAL, Code Black, and most recently, Sharp Objects.
