Heather Morris Button-Pushing Domestic Violence Shots for Charity

Photos of Glee actress Heather Morris, sporting a massive black eye, hit the web last week, and the disturbing pics sent the blogosphere into a tizzy. Morris, known for her role as the ditzy blond Cheerio on Glee, adorned with a hideous black-and-blue eye, posed amidst household items – or the trappings of domesticity if you will -- such as an ironing board and iron, for photographer Tyler Shields.

Photos of Glee actress Heather Morris, sporting a massive black eye, hit the web last week, and the disturbing pics sent the blogosphere into a tizzy.

Morris, known for her role as the ditzy blond Cheerio on Glee, adorned with a hideous black-and-blue eye, posed amidst household items – or the trappings of domesticity if you will -- such as an ironing board and iron, for photographer Tyler Shields.

In one particularly controversial photo, Morris is depicted with the cord of an iron wrapped around her wrists while a man –out of the frame—pulls on the cord.

 

Shields told TMZ that he did not intend to glorify violence against women and apologized that the photos had “come off that way.” The photos are, in fact, intended to be auctioned off for a domestic-violence charity, according to Jezebel.com

Although Morris and Shields have been taking some heavy hits from the media about the wrong message the photos are sending, Morris has held her ground backing up photographer Shields and the photos. “In no way are we promoting domestic violence.” Morris says to E! According to the Huffingtonpost.com

So it all boils down to Heather Morris, star of a top television show, posing for pictures to sell at a charity event. But wouldn’t it have sent a less convoluted message if Shields had clarified the purpose of the photos in the first place without leaving people to craft their own narrative about the photos?
