The 28-year-old actor, who plays Puck on the Fox hit, spoke Wednesday with KIIS-Fm’s Jojo Wright in the wake of the recent scandal, and said the key thing to remember is they’re not high schoolers – they just play them on TV.
“Personally, I think it’s not a big deal,” Salling said. “I mean, they’re 28 and 23 years-old … Lea’s 23 years old and she has every right to do that.
“C’mon we’re not in high school, its kind of tongue-in-cheek that we’re in high school,” Salling told JoJo. “People are starving … there’s enough controversy in the world.”
Salling’s new album Pipe Dreams hits stores October 25. Glee airs Tuesday night at 8/7c on Fox.
