Parents Call Out Lea Michele for "Sending Wrong Message"

by at . Comments

For the second time in a few months, Lea Michele has come under fire for posing in a national magazine.

In October, the actress and a couple Glee co-stars posed provocatively in GQ, a spread that caused such uproar the PTC (ridiculously) compared it to child pornography.

Now, Michele appears on the cover of Cosmopolitan in a dress that - gasp!!! - doesn't cover every inch of her torso.

In response, a few critics have turned to Fox News and expressed disappointment in Michele and the publication.

“I think Lea Michele is sending the wrong message. She plays such a ‘good girl’ on Glee and a lot of kids look up to her persona. Then, she poses very provocatively on two magazine covers, which makes my almost-13-year-old son very confused and offended,” said Kim Trefcer.

Adds Suzette Valle, a mother of two, who writes a blog titled Mamarazzi Knows Best:

“It’s irresponsible to be using an adult who represents a minor dressed in provocative clothes. I think Cosmo is now taking advantage of the raucous GQ caused with their Glee cover and hoping to cash in on the press that got.”

Study the cover shot above and chime in: Do you find it inappropriate?

I really do hope Michelle is wise with her choices. She's half and half from whaI see; playing a good girl in television and posing provocatively in real life.
And gosh, she's so flat chested.


This is bullshit to be honest. Lea Michelle is doing what she wants to do. Its her career or whatever. It hurting nobody. What 13 year old boy would be confused by this? Hes old enough to know that Glee isn't a real show and the actors don't actually act that way. I mean really, come on. This is really the stupidest complaint I've ever heard. Its ridiculous. And how is this 'Child Pornography'? Obviously the parents who have a problem with this should stop complaining and should start wondering why their child is looking at these kind of magazines anyway if their supposed to be '13 years old'!


there is NOTHING wrong with this picture. she is an adult who can do it. she isnt a crack head, or doing shit in her real life. she portrays the character of a teeanger, who has ISSUES. like seriously, Mrs.Trefcer, YOU have problems that you are trying to shove on your 13 year old son, who proabably cant SPELL offended and confused. leave your son alone, let him grow up to be normal, healthy child and instead focus your energies in banning SKINS, JERSEY SHORE and ALL of the Kardashians.


How about everyone just stops posing naked or half naked in magazines? why are half naked women on the covers of women's magazines anyway? If America stopped being so obsessed with sex then none of this crap would ever happen.


Let me preface this by stating that I think Lea Michelle isn't all that talented, is plain looking and is full of herself. That being said, I don't see what the problem is with these pictures. She is an ACTOR. She is a 24 year old woman playing a high school student. The Cosmo cover isn't anything any 24 year old woman should be criticized for. I could understand it if she was 17, but she's not! As for Kim Trefcer's comments. She is NOT a "good girl" on Glee. Her character is self-centered and extremely manipulative. As for your 13 year old son's confusion - take him out into the real world every once in a while. Stop home-schooling him. He obviously watches too much TV!


"which makes my almost-13-year-old son very confused and offended," Bull. Fucking. Shit. The only 13 year old boys that are confused and offended are the ones with zero sex education, and maybe some of the gay ones.


Fuck PTC
Seriously do your own parenting and stop complaining like a pack of stupid brats.
She is 24 but she portrays a young character..So does it mean she has to dress like a 16 year old guy in real life as well
These parents should get them selves a brain..


I'm a parent AND a fan of Glee. And personally there's nothing wrong with the Cosmo cover. And Kim must not watch Glee. The "good girl" she assumes Rachel to be sent a character to a crack house & let her boyfriend touch her breast after he agreed to let their kids go to "Jew church"! IT'S FICTION!!! If her 13 year old doesn't know that, she's got bigger problems than a magazine cover!


These parents need to STFU and actually parent instead of getting their knickers in a twist when the media refuses to do it. Kim Trefcer, why is your 13 year old son looking at GQ and Cosmo to begin with? If it weren't for you forcing it upon him with your ranting about nothing, he probably wouldn't even notice it.


im getting fucking tired of hearing about the PTC. Nothing but a bunch of parents who cant parent their own kids and teach them difference from tv and reality. They need to focus on more serious situations like that stupid tv show Skins.
