Jane Lynch’s publicist has refused to be drawn into a war of words with Ed O’neill after he questioned the Glee star’s Emmy win – she’s thanked him for his outrage instead.
Lynch picked up the Outstanding Supporting Actress trophy for her turn as acid-tongued Sue Sylvester in the hit musical TV series at the awards ceremony in August.

Married… with Children actor O’Neill caused a stir by insisting Lynch didn’t deserve the prize for her “one-note character”, claiming the trophy should have gone to his Modern Family co-star Sofia Vergara.

But Lynch’s rep has refused to be drawn into a showdown, telling O’Neill, “Thanks for being repulsed. But let it go, that’s what we’re doing.”
