Bret Easton Ellis, the author of American Psycho and The Rules of Attraction, is the latest name out of Hollywood to throw jabs at the hit show. While some artists have made their feelings towards Glee clear – for legitimate reasons – Ellis took the ignorant route.

Ellis decided to hop on his Twitter account and post this opinion:

I like the idea of Glee but why is it that every time I watch an episode I feel like I’ve stepped into a puddle of HIV?

After surely getting plenty of feedback about that statement, Ellis then responded with:

No, I wasn’t drunk last night. I was watching Chris Colfer singing, um, “Le Jazz Hot” and felt like I had suddenly come down with the hivs.

Ellis has continued to talk smack about Glee, but in a more civil way. Matthew Morrison, one of the stars of the hit show, responded to the comments by Ellis in an interview with E! News.

Who’s that? – You know what, that means the show is good if people have not-nice things to say — and amazing things to say. It keeps people talking, you know? That’s going to be a part of the show.

Will Ellis continue to trash talk Glee with absurd comments? Do you care?

    Eliis is a great author, and a great critic of Hollywood and the media. Their are a lot of valid criticisms against Glee, I wouldn’t have gone about it the way Ellis did, but that’s just his style. And it should be mentioned, Ellis is gay, or bisexual, he’s with the community, he just doesn’t like the way things are run, in fact, he’s a big critic of the “It Gets Better” campaign.

    Wow, I can’t believe he would say something like that. It’s hilarious because I was one of the people who defended Ellis in my literature class while we were reading American Psycho, and I have to say that my respect for him dropped just a little bit after reading this article. It’s fine if you don’t like Glee and you feel like you need to criticize it, but I don’t think that you should say something so horrible about the show or the actors in the show.

    Hilarious that he’s talking mad crap about Glee, but follows both Chris Colfer and Darren Criss on twitter. l@lz!!

    Just because someone is part of the gay community doesn’t mean they are allowed to say whatever offensive thing they want, and that comment was disgusting and disrespectful.
