Jane Lynch, who plays Sue Sylvester on Glee, has said the coupling of Darren Criss and Chris Colfer's characters on the show was sweet.

In last week's episode, titled The First Time, Criss' Blaine Anderson and Colfer's Kurt Hummel took their budding romance to the next level.

Also losing their virginity on the episode were Finn Hudson (played by Cory Monteith) and Rachel Berry (Lea Michele).

Socially conservative groups fumed at producers for tackling the topic.

During a brief interview before attending a gay fundraiser with her wife, Lara Embry, Lynch told GregInHollywood.com's Greg Hernandez that she thought the storyline was sweet.

“I think they did a great job with that episode, I thought it was so sweet and tender,” she said. “We had Rachel and Finn having their first moment and I thought they did that tastefully. Nobody was humping each other. They basically showed these kids post-coital, if you will. It was just tender and sweet.”

“If you have a problem with homosexuality, then maybe you have a problem with that,” she added.
