November 10, 2010 03:24:46 GMT


Susan Sarandon has defended "Glee" bosses after they were criticised for using a controversial term for transvestites in their recent "Rocky Horror" tribute - insisting certain gay rights groups are "way out of control." The actress starred in 1975's "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", the big screen remake of the stage musical, which was rebooted for a special episode of the hit U.S. TV series last month.

However, the episode's success was marred by Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) officials, who slammed the show's use of the word 'tranny' to describe cross-dressing character Dr. Frank-N-Furter. But Sarandon is adamant the group's views on political correctness are becoming too extreme - likening them to animal-rights crusaders People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
