Bret Easton Ellis Compares Watching 'Glee' To Encountering HIV! How Awful!

This is the most offensive ‘Glee’ diss yet! Do you think Bret should have to apologize?

Not everyone is a Gleek, we get that. But that’s no excuse for author Bret Easton Ellis‘ tweet against Glee on April 12, in which he wrote, “I like the idea of ‘Glee,’ but why is it that every time I watch an episode I feel like I’ve stepped into a puddle of HIV?” Of all the outrageous anti-Glee statements we’ve come across, this one has got to be the worst.

And to make the situation even worse, Bret, 47, actually stands by his inappropriate statement!

“No, I wasn’t drunk last night,” he tweeted April 13. “I was watching Chris Colfer singing, um, ‘Le Jazz Hot’ and felt like I had suddenly come down with the hivs.”

We’d love to know what creator Ryan Murphy has to say about this.
