How the “Rebirth of Hate” for Matthew Morrison Began
The strong Glee community on TikTok has never lost a chance targeting Morrison’s character in the show Glee ‘Will Schuester‘. Most of the time, the fans targeted the fictional character; however, it all changed when a 24-year old TikToker Carleigh Spence, well-known as @teenscientist, accidentally discovered Matthew Morrison TikTok.
Carleigh Spence has around 210K followers. Spence posted her first video about the actor in which she angrily announces that everyone should have access to healthcare service besides Morrison but didn’t resonate fully with users.
She was so optimistic about the concept that she later tried the format again, reminding everyone that other than Morrison of course, should drink water that day. “Stay dehydrated, you sick f*ck!” howling over the footage of herself blackening the photograph of Morrison.
The video was so viral that it garnered 2.1 million views breaking Spence’s earlier channel record and setting up an entirely new brand for herself “The Girl Who Hates Matthew Morrison.”
The girl has posted nearly dozens of videos regarding Morrison, in one she acts like that she has been kidnapped by the actor and grasped hostage in his basement. Spence’s content got successful not only because of her strong dislike towards the actor.
Nicola Ciravolo, a famous TikToker explains,
“I definitely think she started the trend of the renaissance of Matthew Morrison hatred.”
