Happy Endings creator David Caspe says a kiss between Adam Pally and Max Greenfield on Wednesday's episode was cut because “it didn't work.”

In the episode titled You've Got Male, a big coffee chain threatens Alex's business. In a press photograph released last week by ABC, Pally's gay character, Max, is seen kissing Ian, played by Max Greenfield, the owner of the coffee shop.

According to the episode's description, Max and Ian are dating: “Max decides to organize a small business protest when a big coffee chain moves next to Alex's shop, not realizing that the new place is owned by Ian (Max Greenfield), the cute new guy he just started dating.”

The episode comes on the heels of a loud clamor from conservatives against the Fox musical-comedy hit Glee's recent airing of a kiss between Blaine (played by Darren Criss) and Kurt (Chris Colfer).

Gay male entertainment website AfterElton.com is reporting that the kiss will not be broadcast.

“We shot the kiss,” Caspe told the website. “But when we got in the editing room, it didn't really work. I think when you see the episode, you'll understand, but it comes to a funnier conclusion that didn't really work with the kiss. It was too romantic or too real. Too serious, I guess.”
