The article created a huge media backlash, with many public figures (including Groff and Hayes' co-star Kristin Chenoweth) decrying it as homophobic and defending Hayes's, Harris's, and Groff's performances as straight characters. While Jonathan Groff was raised Methodist, his father was raised Mennonite. Remains very good friends with his "Spring Awakening" costar, Lea Michele. Nominated for a Tony Award for Best Actor for "Spring Awakening" in 2007.
