Darren Criss Apologizes For The 'Severity' Of His Caitlyn Jenner Remark During A Recent Hedwig Performance!
UPDATE 2:26 PM EST: To add some clarity to the matter, let's talk about context. The context of the line during the show is of Hedwig describing her perfume line she has — that the perfume is for everyone. The 'whatever you are' piece, she actually points to someone in the audience. That is where the confusion is and it is hard to decipher based off that tweet.
One attendee noted on Twitter:
"Tonight, Darren Criss, as HEDWIG said, 'man, woman, moman, wan, Bruce Jenner, whatever you are' and it was very distasteful."
Though his comments were made while playing the character Hedwig — the 28-year-old's since been accused of being transphobic.
This backlash has since inspired the Glee actor to comment on the remark.
