Jane LynchThe aftermath of the infamous Newsweek article is still ongoing, and now Glee’s has come forward with a statement. Lynch is best-known to Gleeks as wisecracking, no-nonsense Sue Sylvester, New Directions nemesis and Cheerios coach. The actress who plays Sylvester, Jane Lynch, is an openly gay performer, making her one of the targets of the Newsweek article which alleged that homosexual actors are unable to play straight roles.

The article, “Straight Jacket,” was written by Ramin Setoodeh, who has since been by show creator Ryan Murphy. “I do think what Kristin [Chenoweth] and Ryan [Murphy] did was so important, and I’m glad that they said it,” Lynch said of her co-workers, both of whom came forward to deliver scathing statements after “Straight Jacket” was published. “I don’t think you have to slap somebody down for making an opinion that you don’t agree with,” Lynch said.
