GLAAD Wants Smithers to Start a Gay Employee Resource Group

Simpsonsglaad

GLAAD's Media Director Rashad Robinson appeared on last night's Simpsons 20th anniversary special to talk about Waylon Smithers.

Says Robinson: "GLAAD counts Smithers as a gay character because the show has definitely told us that he's gay. We would love the character Smithers to progress by becoming more open about his sexual orientation in the community. Maybe he starts a gay employee resource group down at the plant."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
