Last night I reported here about Vanity Fair writer Brett Brek, an openly gay man who reviewed reviewed last week’s episode of Glee titled “Sexy“, and refereed to two of the main teenage gay characters of Kurt Hummel and Blaine played by Chris Coffer and Darren Criss “foam-party fags”
Well word spread via the Internet and Twitter and lo and behold and not long after Berk issued an apology on his website:
would like to thank all of you out there that picked up on this and sent your complaints to Mr. Berk.
Despite the fact that Brett Berk states that he used the description in an “off handed way”. Words DO have consequences especially when describing two teenage gay characters in a mainstream magazine in what could be seen by others as a derogatory manner.
Again THANKS to all who helped.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! (Who needs GLAAD?)
