** Dani [[OnlyOneName No-Name]], Santana's new girlfriend introduced in season five. It also qualifies for [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot a wasted plot]] as well. This character had tons of potential. It could have made for an interesting side-plot about Santana having a girlfriend outside of Brittany and giving her some good character development. After her first appearance, in which she does get a decent bit of screentime, the two begin to date. And then she proceeds to get maybe about less than five minutes of screentime an episode and speaks for about thirty seconds of it. This isn't so bad but she's played by ''DemiLovato'', an incredible singer and a good actress to boot. She had so much hype as a character and they used her. It becomes especially jarring when at the end of Puppet Master she doesn't even appear to sing with the group despite the fact that Starchild (another character introduced in season 5) is there to sing and also that she is in Kurt's band. It became bad to the point where people actually thought that she and Santana were broken up. And now she's apparently off the show after four episodes despite the fact she was supposedly down for six.

Added DiffLines:

*** At least one of the Tea Party members in "Homecoming" talks sense, when she says that Puck shouldn't call them losers if he wants them to listen to them.

** Kurt's speech to Blaine who is questioning his sexuality in "Blame It On The Alcohol", where he states that [[NoBisexuals bisexuality doesn't exist and that men claiming to be bisexuality are really just closeted gay people]]. While it could just be dismissed as Kurt holding the JerkassBall, and Blaine does call him out on his insensitivity, the fact that Kurt is validated at the end of the episode combined with his usual history of being seen as an AuthorAvatar regarding LGBT issues [[http://bitchmagazine.org/post/visibility-glee%E2%80%99s-problem-with-bisexual-men-television-feminism was seen by many viewers as a case of the show being biphobic]]. Not helping were comments from [[WordOfGod Ryan Murphy]] made soon after regarding the fact that Blaine is 100% gay that "itís very important to young kids that they know this character [Blaine] is one of them", as if bisexual kids don't matter. Especially considering male bisexuality has even less representation in the media than male homosexuality does.

** Also Sue in the same episode. She is seen as cynical and vindictive for robbing Kurt of the chance for comfort with religious songs from his friends and not believing in God. Though she didn't trick Kurt into anything, and barely had to convince him, she just had to convince him that she didn't have any alterier motives, which seems to be true. And Emma asks her to keep her religious views to herself, but despite Sue being so open about everything and giving many long winded monologues about serious topics, this is a year in and we had never heard of her Atheism before this, while most religious characters have made their beliefs known by now. The only way that the show even slightly acknowledges this is when Sue responds saying she needs to keep HER beliefs to herself and Emma can't reply.

** DarrenCriss isn't a bad actor, but he has a tendency to make the most ridiculous faces when he's singing as Blaine that can really ruin the mood of the song. The most jarring would have to be "Cough Syrup" which is a dramatic moment as it switches from Blaine singing to Karofsky preparing to take his own life but it gets ruined by Blaine making faces like [[http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lzxcspv4Lf1qgcov3o1_500.png this]].

* FandomHeresy: Let's just say that there aren't many places in the ''Series/{{Glee}}'' fandom where it's safe to admit that you don't much like Lea Michele's singing voice, and leave it at that. Creator/ChrisColfer and DarrenCriss (if not [[BaseBreakingCharacter their characters]]) also tend to be sacred cows.

** There is something of a battle over Kurt's portrayal. His CampGay persona is quite controversial: as the show is so popular, many believe that it gives a bad representation of gays to the mainstream as ''Series/WillAndGrace'' did years ago. Others believe that having an openly gay character who is neither StraightGay nor the least bit ashamed is a good thing. Still others believe that Kurt's message became more important than the actual character.

** Kurt in general has been accused of being an unflattering stereotype of homosexuals. While Kurt is commended for his courage in not hiding his sexuality and standing up to adversity, he is also [[OffendingTheCreatorsOwn rather disliked by many gay viewers]] for being hard to identify with due to his extreme CampGay tendencies or [[http://www.remotepatrolled.com/2010/05/glees-gay-problem/ criticized]] for [[http://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/tvandradioblog/2011/mar/15/kurt-hummel-glee-gay doing more harm than good]] for representation of gays in the media. On top of that is resentment over the above-mentioned issues and the way he's seen as a mouthpiece for controversial views expressed by some portions of the gay community that are not necessarily shared by the rest of its members.

** The storyline about Quinn trying to get Beth back [[http://popcrush.com/glee-petition-adoption/ was criticized by adoption advocates]] for giving a bad image of open adoptions, as well as just factual inaccuracy (i.e. once the birth parents sign away their parental rights they're gone for good, so if the adoptive parent is declared to be "unfit," the child is taken into foster care, not given to the birth parents). They petitioned the show to do a PSA dispelling myths about adoption; so far, nothing has come of it, but the controversial storyline also seems to have been wrapped up.
