With concern groups making asinine claims of GQ promoting pedophilia with their latest photo shoot featuring the stars of Glee, Dianna Agron has issued a statement on her blog apologizing for the racy shots. Sort of:
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?
I was a very sheltered child, and was not aware of anything provocative or risque in the media while I was navigating through my formative years. When I was finally allowed to watch a movie like Grease, I did not even understand what on earth Rizzo was talking about!? 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.
Did Dianna Agron start to make a heartfelt apology only to turn around and jab retarded parents in the eye for not keeping an eye on their kids? — I want this woman. Preferably in the cheerleader outfit she goes on to say she wasn’t thrilled about wearing, but let’s not get into an argument over the very real and factual consequences of teaching the fairer sex how to read and write. We’re talking about love right now.
