‘Glee’ Star Responds to Controversy: Why Is Your Kid Reading ‘GQ’?

The Parents Television Council released a statement this week denouncing a GQ photo shoot featuring three of Glee‘s stars as bordering on “pedophilia.” One of the stars, Dianna Agron, responded to the group’s outrage on her blog with both an apology and a question of her own.

“If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention. And if your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry. But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?”

The star is contrite, but doesn’t take the criticism lying down. Is this an appropriate response? The comments are open.
