Glee creator Ryan Murphy, seems to have hit out at Modern Family bosses for failing to write any gay kisses into their scripts.
The hit ABC comedy features a homosexual couple, Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), who are married and have an adopted daughter, however the pair have not yet shared a kiss on screen.
Greg In Hollywood reports that while talking about Glee season two and a planned kiss between Brittany (Heather Morris) and Santana (Naya Rivera, Ryan got stuck into his rival show.
“I hate it on TV shows, and there’s one show I won’t name right now, where it’s like, ‘Why aren’t these characters kissing, don’t they have a child?'” he said. “That’s ridiculous to me. I don’t understand it.”
“If I did it on my show, I would just have them do it in every scene and not have a big deal about it,” he added. “I don’t think that you have to announce a very special episode. Weren’t they doing it back on Roseanne? It is just so outdated and archaic to me and as a gay man, I would never do that. I would make it very organic and do it several times and not make it a stunt.”
Speaking about the kiss that Brittany and Santana will share, he added: “I’m directing the episode where they’re going to kiss a couple of times. The key is to do it a couple times so it doesn’t seem forced.”
