Michael Urie to critics of gay sex on TV: ‘Change the channel’

Out actor Michael Urie, who played gay on Ugly Betty and on the short-lived sitcom Partners, has a few things to say about gay sex scenes on television.

Urie (pictured with Partners co-star Brandon Routh) says: ‘I don’t think it’s overexposed. If gay sex on TV is too much for you, change the channel and don’t watch it, it’s not for you.’

Urie was asked about the topic by NewNowNext in light of Billy Crystal’s comments last week about gay scenes on TV today ‘going too far.’

Says Urie: ‘I think there is far too much football on TV. But I’m not going around saying they should take football off the air; I’m changing the channel.’

Urie ws a smash Off-Broadway in the show Buyer & Cellar which he also took on tour. He next appears in the upcoming web series What’s Your Emergency.
