Has Amber Riley called it quits on "Glee"? After starring on the hit Fox show for three years, she tweeted what seemed like a goodbye message:

“That's a wrap on Amber Riley! Just closed a chapter in my life, the only thing I've known day in and day out for three years. I'm going to miss the whole Glee family, seeing them everyday! I have so many brothers and sisters now. But I am looking forward to a much needed and deserved summer vacation! School’s Out Glee Kids! Let's play!”

That tweet was followed-up by this, sending somewhat of a mixed message to fans:

We're guessing she means stay tuned to the show's season finale to find out where Mercedes is going after graduation, but there's still no official word about her fate on the show.

Last year, Riley hinted to E! Online that she was contemplating leaving the show behind.

"I may not be coming back for a fourth season," Riley told E! Online. "Who knows? Whatever happens this third season is what happens, and I think everybody's OK with it...I love my job to pieces, but when it's time to go, it's time to go and, hopefully, there are greater things on the horizon."

Tell us: Would you be sad to see Mercedes go? Or is it time for a new class to take over?
