Glee bosses have been accused of "gross recklessness" by angry activists for depicting sex between high school students in the hit show.
Conservative watchdogs at the Parents Television Council (Ptc) have targeted TV chiefs for showing intimate scenes between two young couples, including one straight and one gay pairing, in an episode entitled The First Time, which aired in the U.S. on Tuesday (08Nov11).
Ptc president Tim Winter says, "The fact that Glee intends to not only broadcast, but celebrate children having sex is reprehensible. The gender of the high school characters involved is irrelevant. Teen sex is now more prevalent on TV than adult sex and Glee is only playing into that trend.
"Research proves that television is a teen sexual super peer that can, and likely will, influence a teen's decision to become sexually active. Fox knows the show inherently attracts kids; celebrating teen sex constitutes gross recklessness."
Meanwhile, Glee star Chris Colfer admits he expected the episode to cause controversy.
He tells EW.com, "I absolutely expect to hear from (watchdog groups). It's funny, I always go into this instant panic state whenever they tell me about upcoming episodes, because we always do so many delicate situations on the show. But then I get the script and we shoot it and it's always handled so well that I never really had any reason to worry about it."
