‘Glee’ star Naya Rivera’s fans lash out at authorities for suspending overnight search

Fans of Naya Rivera are lashing out at California authorities for suspending their search overnight for the missing actress, claiming that if she were white — like “Glee” co-star Lea Michele — they’d still be looking.

Rivera, 33, vanished from a boat on Lake Piru Wednesday afternoon during an outing with her 4-year-old son, Josey. She is presumed dead.

The search for the actress — who is Puerto Rican, black and German — was suspended overnight and set to resume at sunrise Thursday morning.

But fans claimed it would’ve continued had Rivera not been a woman of color — drawing comparisons to her white “Glee” co-star Lea Michele.

“WOMEN OF COLOR DESERVE BETTER,” one person railed. “WOMEN OF COLOR DESERVE TO BE SEARCHED FOR. TREAT NAYA LIKE SHES LEA MICHELE AND GO F—-G LOOK FOR HER I’M SICK.”

Another tweeted, “it’s actually infuriating. what if it was lea? or any other white actor? they wouldn’t be stopping their search,” “it doesn’t (and will never) matter if you’re gorgeous, rich, famous. naya is a latinx woman, with tan skin. FLASHLIGHTS, PEOPLE. ITS 2020.”
