Bret Easton Ellis Calls Glee a ‘Puddle of HIV,’ Ryan Murphy Freakishly Quiet

By: The Superficial / April 14, 2011

Author Bret Easton Ellis apparently decided to see how fast he could make Ryan Murphy’s head explode last night (Wow. Already with the gay metaphors.) by writing the following tweet. Via E! News:

“I like the idea of Glee but why is it that every time I watch an episode I feel like I’ve stepped into a puddle of HIV?”

Naturally, Perez Hilton has already pulled a torch out of his ass and lit it, except it should probably be pointed out that Bret Easton Ellis has a history of banging men and women, but prefers to call his sexuality “indeterminate.” Also, it’s funny to equate things with AIDS. Anyway, the author has a past of pissing all over anti-gay bashing initiatives by being depressingly realistic:

In November, he took on the gay youth suicide prevention campaign “It Does Get Better.” “Not to bum everyone out, but can we get a reality check here?” he posted. “It gets worse.”

Of course, the most surprising part is how quiet Ryan Murphy has been in the past 24 hours. Then again, I can only assume he’s writing a 20-page open letter on how Bret Easton Ellis might as well have branded every gay music student in America with a number before marching them to Dachau. I bet it’s that.
