Comedian Joan Rivers has taken a swipe
at Fox's musical-comedy Glee.
The 78-year-old Rivers knocks how the
show portrays gay students in her upcoming book I
Hate Everybody … Starting with Me.
Glee's numerous gay characters
has earned it the nickname “The gayest show on television.” The
show includes a gay male couple (played by Darren Criss and Chris
Colfer), a lesbian couple (Naya Rivera and Heather Morris), a
formerly closeted football player (Max Adler) and a transgender
student (Alex Newell). Other secondary characters are also gay, such
as Rachel Berry's (Lea Michele) two dads.
Rivers took aim at the show, saying it
wasn't based on reality.
“You know that cute Asian boy who
plays a freshman? In real life he's a thirty-year-old man and he's
upside down on a mortgage in Burbank,” Rivers wrote. “The only
way Lea Michele is in high school is if she's part of some bizarre
religious cult and she's come back to school with bombs strapped to
her boobs. The only true character on Glee is the fat girl
because in real life she is a fat girl. On Glee all the homo
kids are smiling and giggly and they spend every day singing in the
halls. When I went to high school, the homos spent most of their
days hiding in their lockers, crying!”
