Ryan Murphy the creator of Glee on Friday admitted that he has received death threats.
Murphy, a TV writer has highlighted homosexual relationships and minorities in the musical comedy series which has angered many people. People have shown their anger by threatening him.
"I think any time you shine a spotlight on homosexuality or minorities and you try and say they are as normal or as worthy as acceptance as others, the people who are on the fringe don't like that and they will come after you," Ryan told Deadline magazine in an interview. "And they have come after me. I think it's such a great show for young kids. The values of it, I think, are great."
Murphy admitted that he screwed up some storylines. He explains that originally the Glee was meant to be a post-watershed show.
"Ninety per cent of what the show has to say is so positive, I feel stupid and bad that the 10 per cent would exclude a portion of the episode. There are specific episodes where we did push it too far," Murphy said in an interview.
"I think the condom demonstration was a road too far. I think showing a kid masturbating was a bridge too far. You know, when you're creating a show you're in the middle of it and then you hear the comments," he added.
Murphy received a lot of criticism when the news of his show's three main stars, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith, would graduate from McKinley High and wouldn't return after series three broke.
