Fans of the Broadway musical Funny Girl are in turmoil over Lea Michele getting a sexier finale costume after she replaced Beanie Feldstein as Fanny Brice on the revival show.

When Michele, 36, took the stage at the end of her first performance on Tuesday, she was styling a slinky red beaded dress that bared her arms. The design was completely different from the modest billow-sleeved version worn by Feldstein, 29.

TikTok user Alaina Noelle compared the two looks in a viral videowhich prompted viewers to accuse the show’s producers of “fatphobia” in the comments.

“It took no more than three seconds to remove the sleeves from Fanny’s last dress after Beanie left,” she said. “And you can say what you like about it, but as a bigger person it was noticed, felt and noticed.”

Alaina’s video has been viewed more than 270,000 times since Wednesday, and a number of commentators agreed with her.

“Holy… I went back and looked at Beanie’s dress and it’s not even in the same concept. That’s a whole different dress. Oh my god,” someone wrote.

“Okay, THIS I’M WAITING FOR SOMEONE WHO BROUGHT THIS. Beanie earns so much and deserved SO MUCH BETTER,” someone else said.

‘[Producers] immediately changed the wardrobe after she left to make more of it [conventionally] pretty. Might as well have tweeted that they should cover for plus-size people,” Alaina said.

Feldstein left the production in July and her July understudy Benko took over until Michele’s return to Broadway this week. Some people pointed out that the sleeves of Benko’s dress had also been removed.

‘My heart goes out to you. As a costume professional, I noticed it right away and was furious,” commented one person. “They took off the sleeves for Julie a week ago and I knew…”

Others argued that it was possible that Michele and Feldstein had asked for their specific costumes, but not everyone believed that theory.

Another TikTok user named Lily went viral duets Alaina’s video about Michele’s costume upgrade.

The conversation continued on Twitter, where critics shared their outrage at the noticeable difference in costumes.

“I know there’s a lot of talk about Funny Girl, but there’s something that I think is a minor detail for some, but it’s an important discussion; Fanny’s last dress,” tweeted Carolyn Burt, a Los Angeles Times reporter. “After Beanie left production, so did the sleeves. And with Lea’s debut comes a new cut.’

“I think it’s phobic that Lea’s version of the final costume is so much better than Beanie’s,” another lamented.

Someone else had a message for the show’s costume designers: “I see you put sleeves on a plus size Fanny and remove them for a straight size Fanny… we’ll see what you do.”
