Lea Michele - Ryan Murphy Received Death Threats About 'Glee'


RYAN MURPHY, the creator of hit TV show Glee, has revealed that he received death threats due to the show's content. RYAN MURPHY, who is openly gay himself, recent claimed, in a lengthy interview with Deadline, that his decision to focus on minority groups in Glee, particularly gay people, has made him a target: "I think any time you shine a spotlight on homosexuality or minorities and you try and say they are as normal or as worthy of acceptance as others, the people who are on the fringe don't like that and they will come after you.And they have come after me."

Murphy also spoke about how he had made some mistakes with the show that may have contributed to the ill-feeling, admitting that he had "screwed up in hindsight" because the show was originally intended to be post-watershed: "There are specific episodes where we did push it too far. I think the condom demonstration was a road too far. I think showing a kid masturbating was a bridge too far. You know, when you're creating a show you're in the middle of it and then you hear the comments." He also opened up about the decision to allow key members of the cast - Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith to 'graduate' and thereby leave the show. "I was, for a solid week, the Anti-Christ," he said. He also added that the three would return in some capacity.
