Dianna Agron Apologizes for 'GQ.' Was It the Right Thing to Do?
Dianna Agron and Lea Michele's racy GQ photos have ticked off quite a few people, including The Parents Television Council. The group released a statement saying the magazine is "sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on Glee in this way. It borders on pedophilia."
Many of you disagree with their harsh words. When we asked how you felt about the provocative pictures, slightly over 50 percent of you thought the magazine photos were "Super hot!"
Now Dianna (Quinn) is letting everyone know her opinion surrounding the controversy.
On her tumblr, the actress writes, "In the land of Madonna, Britney, Miley, Gossip Girl, other public figures and shows that have pushed the envelope and challenged the levels of comfort in their viewers and fans...we are not the first. Now, in perpetuating the type of images that evoke these kind of emotions, I am sorry. If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention. And if your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry. But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?"
While Dianna is making an apology, she's also letting parents know they have a responsibility to keep adult material out of their kids' hands.
"I understand that in today's world of advanced technology, the internet, our kids can be subject to very adult material at the click of a button. But there are parental locks, and ways to get around this. I am twenty-four years old. I have been a pretty tame and easy-going girl my whole life. Nobody is perfect, and these photos do not represent who I am."
Do you think Dianna needed to apologize, and Lea should do the same? Or are people getting bent out of shape over nothing?
