Glee is known to push the envelope, but in last night's episode, Max Adler's jock character Dave Karofsky attempted suicide after being outted.

This is the same character that once bullied Chris Colfer's character for being gay.

During one scene of the episode, Dave goes to his locker to find it has been vandalized with the word f*g. Then a short while later, he is seen trying to hang himself in his bedroom.

When asked about the episode, Adler says:

    "I was incredibly happy that the writers and producers chose to go there, and I said that to them, "It's so brave and honest, and you're really treating this character with the integrity that he deserves."

Fortunately, Adler's character survives the ordeal.
