Words are being exchanged between Glee creator Ryan Murphy and Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill.
Ryan Murphy has accused the musician of prejudicial views after his comments on Twitter.
It started when Nathan took to Twitter to respond to Ryan’s comments over Kings of Leon not wanting their music on the hit TV show.
Before it was deleted, it is believed Nathan tweeted: “Dear Ryan Murphy, let it go.”
“See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra. Zip your lip and focus on educating seven-year-olds how to say f**k.”
The Sun reports that Murphy then sent an open message to Perez Hilton, saying: “That’s (Followill) a homophobe badly in need of some education.”
“I’m all for manicures, don’t wear a bra. Would guess most gay dudes don’t.”
“It’s telling that Nathan can reduce a group of people to a mean-spirited cliché, in a time where young gay men are killing themselves all over the country because of hatred.”
“That said, I would love to sit down with Nathan or any member of Kings and Leon (sic), and tell them how on Glee we actually love their music, and support their artistry… but cannot condone or even laugh at their clear disdain of gay people.”
Nathan later responded: “I’m sorry for anyone that misconstrued my comments as homophobic or misogynistic.”
“I’m so not that kind of person. I really do apologise.”
