Glee star Amber Riley (Mercedes) gave everyone a scare at the Television Academy of Arts and Sciences event in North Hollywood when she fainted on the red carpet while giving interviews. Fans and photogs were freaked out and hoped for the best.

Thankfully, Amber Riley assured her fans that she is perfectly fine!

Hey guys, I’m okay 🙂 I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! You’d think I’s be used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes.
