The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) has asked a Houston Fox affiliate for a formal apology after it aired a “Is TV Too Gay?” segment following last week’s 90-minute Lady Gaga–themed episode.
The segment zeroed in on the pretty gay Glee, asking whether it “delve[s] too much into homosexual relationships.” And Fox host Damali Keith compared the gay characters on Glee to “product placement” by soda companies in movies, where “everyone in the theater is thirsty for that particular brand.” Bryan Fletcher from the American Family Association also spoke on the segment, calling Glee pro-gay “propaganda.” Local affiliate KRIV-26 has yet to issue an apology.
