Matthew Morrison probably thinks fans who saw his performance in “Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch Musical!” have hearts 2 sizes too small … ’cause they’re going off about his hyper-sexual take on the Grinch.
The “Glee” star drenched himself in the green getup for Wednesday night’s musical on NBC, but instead of softening hearts around the world, things got strange.
This is deeply, deeply disturbing. Bone chilling. Matthew Morrison must be detained. pic.twitter.com/ixFBIHFo7I

With lots of moaning, heavy breathing and come hither stares into the camera … many viewers felt MM went bizarrely overboard with his portrayal.
You could almost hear people at home screaming, “That’s a no for me, dawg” … which is a pretty good summary of the Twitter reviews. One viewer even said, “Sending matthew morrison the bill for all the therapy i’ll need after watching his bizarrely sexual interpretation of the grinch.”
The best way to wind down after a show is to take off your green make up with a little @WICKED_Musical. How’d I do, @idinamenzel @ShoshanaBean @TealWicks @EdenEspinosa @JessicaVosk @LindsayMendez @StephanieJBlock @AnaGasteyer @JuliaMurney @_mandygonzalez 💚 #grinchmusical pic.twitter.com/3rRTRMvJAQ

After the show, Matthew posted a video of himself taking off his makeup while singing “For Good” from the popular play, “Wicked.”
Nice PR move, but it still didn’t distract fans from taking out their frustrations. Some of them included concerned parents who said their kids had nightmares.
As one unhappy customer put it, “matthew morrison doing an incredibly cursed rendition of the grinch is the most fitting way to end this wretched year imo, we r in hell.”
Settle down folks, it’s just a freakin’ musical. You’re all mean ones.
