Heather Morris - Heather Morris' Photoshoot For Shields Draws Controversy

Glee star Heather Morris has come under fire for appearing to glamorise domestic violence after taking part in a controversial shoot with celebrity photographer Tyler Shields.
The blonde actress poses for the cameras sporting a black eye and is even tied up with the cord of an iron in one daring image.
The pictures have been posted on Shields' website, depicting Morris as "a subversive 'Barbie style' housewife".
In the accompanying blog post, he writes, "Even Barbie bruises. We have been talking about shooting for a long time and we finally made it happen! Some magic, irons, and bruises later it was complete."
But not everyone is a fan of Shields' shots.
One website user writes, "I do.not.get.it. Why do you keep producing photos glamorizing violence against women?" Another adds, "So wait… we’re glamorizing bruises/abuse now?"
However, Shields has defended the photoshoot as a work of art.
He tells TooFab.com, "It was something we both wanted to do, a bruised up Barbie. In no way were we promoting domestic violence. We both loved the idea and we both love the photos."
Shields is no stranger to controversy - he previously photographed Lindsay Lohan holding a gun to her head.
