We love Glee and we love Matthew Morrison who plays Will Schuester on the show. Andrew Goldman of Elle Magazine apparently doesn’t love Glee, Morrison, and the debate is still out on if he hates puppies, ice cream and candy too! Seriously. I just read the beginning of the interview Goldman had with Morrison, and the questions were insulting. It starts out with Goldman wrongly assuming Morrison is gay and goes downhill from there.
It does not seem like it was a harmless mistake that Goldman made. If you’re not sure about something, you ask off the record (or a PR person!) – or don’t ask at all. You don’t ask, justify your asking, and then grill the person as though they were lying (which is what it seems he does when he asks Morrison “What was the first moment you realized you were a heterosexual being?”)
ELLE: So, Matt, you’re a musical theater star who’s been interviewed by The Advocate and much discussed on Manhunt.com, and you star in Glee, a program that’s referred to as “the gayest show on TV.” You must feel particularly proud being the first gay man to grace this page.
MATTHEW MORRISON: I’m not gay.
ELLE: I had indeed read in various places that you’re straight, but in light of the circumstantial evidence, I wasn’t sure.
MM: I grew up singing and dancing, so people have been calling me gay since fifth grade. I’ve heard everything you could possibly hear about it. But I do love gay people, so I’m not going to act like I was insulted or angry about it.
