Golden Globe Winner Chris Colfer Says, 'Screw That, Kids!' But an Awards Blogger Says: Screw Colfer's Role
Chris Colfer dedicates his first Globe (on his first try) to the kids who hear nothing but "No," but Awards Daily blogger Sasha Stone dumps a Slushie on his head.
Harsh! Most folks went "aww" when Glee's Golden Globe winner Colfer chose to give a shoutout to all the kids out there "who are constantly told no ... by bullies at school [and told] they can't be who they are. Well, screw that, kids!" Well, screw that, major blogger Sasha Stone just tweeted: "Better for gay teens would be an award for not playing a cheap caricature."
In an election, I'll bet this sentiment from Time's James Poniewozik would win: "Good to hear a winner thank the fans and to say something worth saying to them. Applause, Chris Colfer."
