‘Everyone needs to know what Ryan Murphy really did … or didn’t do!!!’ George said in a tweet. ‘I’m about to blow up this story …. and make sure he’s knows that I know ….’

He wrote to another user, ‘When you are part of the Hollywood elite, some people treat others as they are “less than” …. vocalize a good game, but it’s as shallow as the sets on stage, that they create. Promises made in public, only to fade with time and excuses …. even in a unexplainable tragedy …’

He added, ‘Broken Promises….. fake outrage …. hollow gestures ….. no phone call.’

Murphy, 55, subsequently responded to the stir, claiming that he and his co-creators have been working on the estate through other channels.

‘Myself, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan have committed to create a college fund for Naya Rivera’s child Josey through the Naya Rivera Estate Trust,’ he said. ‘We have been in repeated conversations with the appropriate executors of her estate.’
