Internet is rife with news over “Glee” actress Naya Rivera who went missing from a boating trip to Lake Piru, California, along with her son, Josey Hollis Dorsey, aged four. The actress was seen boarding the boat late Wednesday evening, and that was the last anyone saw of her.
After more than three hours, the rented pontoon was found with Josey in it, sleeping, with his life vest on. But Naya was nowhere to be found.
And now, conspiracy theorists are talking of the Glee Curse, and everyone has something to say…
All of Wednesday night and Thursday saw authorities launch a search and rescue mission for Naya, hopefully, to find her alive.
Sadly, as the hours passed, officials said that it was more of a retrieval operation now, in a bid to find the body.
Aged just 33, Naya Rivera had played the very spunky role of cheerleader Santana Lopez on “Glee”, and now, it seems, she too has been brought down by what the netizens are calling the “Glee Curse”.
And Naya Rivera is just one of the many tragedies of the show.

Glee ended with its last episode airing in March, 2015 and this was a full two years after Cory Monteith, who played star quarterback Finn Hudson on the show, died of a heroin and alcohol overdose in his hotel room in Vancouver.
No note was found and the death was deemed accidental. Monteith was alone in his room at the time and left his co-star and girlfriend Lea Michele devastated over the loss.
Of course, Lea Michele has had her own string of troubles recently, with costars accusing her of racism during the production of “Glee”.
If Cory Monteith’s death and now Naya Rivera’s presumed death wasn’t enough, the cast of “Glee” has had further misfortune.
In December 2015, Mark Salling, who played Noah “Puck” Puckerman on the show was arrested on charges of child porn possession, and by January 2018, he had died of an apparent suicide.
More fuel was added into the fire with Becca Tobin’s boyfriend’s inexplicable death and the social media post of Melissa Benoist being in an abusive relationship with a fellow “Glee” cast member…

One Twitter user wrote, “This is starting to get f**king creepy. Like did the Glee show have a curse put on it or something. This is worse than the shit that happened to the Poltergeist cast cause they decided to use real corpses on set. Like Glee….what DID you DO? WHAT DID YOU DO?!”
While many found these tweets disrespectful towards the families of all involved, still others fully agreed.
Of course, prayers for Naya Rivera are still on with many hoping she will be found soon, though by now, it may only be wishful thinking…
The Glee curse:
Cory Monteith’s death
Mark Salling’s child pornography charges and suicide
Becca Tobin’s boyfriend’s “mysterious” death
Melissa Benoist in an abusive relationship with a fellow Glee cast member

Now, Naya Rivera’s probable death
