Parents Group Says ‘Glee’ Shoot ‘Borders on Pedophilia’

TMZ is reporting on the stir caused by the November issue of GQ, which features three of the stars of Glee - (from left to right) Dianna Agron, Cory Monteith and Lea Michele.

According to the site, The Parents Television Council has released a statement that “denounced” the show’s creators for the “hyper-sexualized” photo shoot that will appear in the magazine.

“It is disturbing that GQ, which is explicitly written for adult men, is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on Glee in this way,” the statement says, quoting PTC president Tim Winter. (For the record, these three actors are all over the age of 18.)

Is this a PR crisis for the show? The comments are open.
