One of the stars of "Glee" featured in a controversial GQ Magazine photo spread has apologized to anyone who may be offended by the pics. But she also took a dig at parents who might be in a tizzy over the photos.
"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," Dianna Agron wrote on her blog.
But when it comes to parents out there with little kids who have seen the pics, Ms. Agron seemed to suggest where responsibility for that lies - and it's not with her.
"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?" she said.
The apology went on to add that "these photos do not represent who I am" and that she is putting the incident behind her.
"I must say, I am trying to live my life with a sharpie marker approach. You can't erase the strokes you've made, but each step is much bolder and more deliberate. I'm moving forward from this one, and after today, putting it to rest," Ms. Agron wrote.
The apology comes after the Parents Television Council criticized the racy GQ photo spread featuring actors from the hit television show, saying in a release on the group's website that the photo spread "borders on pedophilia."
