Broadway actress Kristin Chenoweth has slammed Newsweek writer Ramin Setoodeh, who criticized Sean Hayes for not being able to successfully play a straight man in Promises, Promises.

He went on to generalize the casting problem to all gay actors, popeater.com reported.

An upset Chenoweth immediately wrote a lengthy response to support her Broadway co-star.

“This article offends me because I am a human being, a woman and a Christian. For example, there was a time when Jewish actors had to change their names because anti-Semites thought no Jew could convincingly play Gentile,” she wrote.
