The Parents Television Council is criticizing the new GQ cover which features “Glee” stars Cory Monteith Dianna Agron and Lea Michele wearing hardly any clothing.
The parents group says the magazine cover borders on pedophilia.
They add that it is disturbing that a magazine explicitly written for adult men, is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters.
GQ responded by saying the actors are in their 20s and old enough to do what they want.
CAST MEMBER RESPONDS:
"Glee's" Dianna Agron responded to the controversy over the GQ pictorial.
On her blog last night, Dianna apologized to anyone who might be "hurt" or "uncomfortable" by the photos but added that "we are not the first" public figures to push the envelope.
She wrote: "Nobody is perfect, and these photos do not represent who I am. " She says GQ "asked us to play very heightened versions of our school characters. A 'Hit Me Baby One More Time' version. At the time, it wasn't my favorite idea, but I did not walk away."
The actress also argued that parents have ways of keeping this kind of content away from their kids.
Agron added, "And if your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry. But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?"
Everyone needs to R-E-L-A-X!
