Chris Colfer wasn't amused by his Twitter hacker's news-making tweet...at least, not at first.

After a hacker tweeted from Chris's account that he was leaving Glee – news that was picked up by a ton of media outlets - the actor dished on all the craziness, telling Entertainment Weekly Radio, "It sucked."

"Whoever this A-hole was that did this knew that I was going to be on this plane and I couldn't be reached," Chris said. "So as soon as I landed, my phone just exploded." Chris's cast mate Lea Michele was also later hacked, with someone tweeting from her account that she's pregnant (this also wasn't true).

"I tweeted at her and I said, 'Hey, if you need a babysitter, apparently I'll be available,'" Colfer joked. "At least we're in it together." Chris also tweeted to fans Friday after the hacking went down, writing, "Apparently I missed quite the INTERESTING day while aboard my flight. I'm just glad I wasn't "killed by a fruit truck" again."

As for that fake celebrity death rumor, a few years back, Chris joked to Conan O'Brien that his Glee co-stars get all the glamorous rumors, and the only rumor he ever heard about himself was that he was killed by a fruit truck after getting distracted by the beautiful oranges on the back of it.

At least he's laughing about all of this.
