Glee's Heather Morris shows up in Tyler Shields photos with black eye




Another Glee star is in another controversial photo shoot, this time with Heather Morris, a.k.a. cheerleader Brittany appearing in a Tyler Shields photo shoot with a faux black eye. And since we live in an age of neverending media provocation and societal outrage, people are mad about it. Lea Michele is probably glad the spotlight is off her for that GQ thing.

Several commenters on were unimpressed with the shoot, with the first commenter posting, "So wait… we're glamorizing bruises/abuse now?" Another added, "Why do you keep producing photos glamorizing violence against women? There is absolutely nothing new or revelatory about pics like this. ... They just perpetuate images of battered women. Can you please explain why you're so stuck in the dark ages?"

Shields, for his part, defended the shoot on by saying, "It was something we both wanted to do, a bruised up Barbie. In no way were we promoting domestic violence. We both loved the idea and we both love the photos."
