As an out Lesbian and massively famous due to her role in Glee, Jane Lynch often seems to be treated by journalists as if she’s the de facto spokesperson for all LGBT people, even though it’s not exactly a role she seems to want to take – she speaks for herself and not necessarily for all gay people.
While much of the world has been harumphing for the past week over director Brett Ratner saying ‘Rehearsal’s for fags’, which led to his resignation as producer of the Oscar (and the subsequent departure of Eddie Murphy as host), Lynch has slightly different feelings.
She told E!Online that “I feel bad him. I wasn’t offended. I’m OK.” Lynch added, “I think humour is such a personal thing, and you put a microphone in somebody’s face, they’re going to say something that offends somebody.”
Whether she’s right or wrong, Lynch certainly always gives an honest opinion.
