Glee star Chris Colfer refuses to read about himself online because he is convinced catty internet comments are comparable to "bullying".
The gay actor, who has previously admitted he was targeted by his schoolmates when he was a youngster, has found himself attracting criticism from internet users since landing the role of fashionista Kurt Hummel on the hit U.S. TV show.
So Colfer avoids searching for himself on the web to avoid the nasty remarks.
He tells Piers Morgan Tonight, "It was just high school again. It was high school all over again, people making fun of my voice, people making fun of the way I looked. I mean, it was just bullying in another form.
"It's ridiculous when people have strong opinions about you when it's about things you can't control. Like, an example, my voice. I cannot control how high-pitched I get when I get excited. I wish I could control it. There are so many situations when I wish I wasn't squealing, but... it's something I do."
