Tomorrow's episode of Glee tackles bullying, and Chris Colfer, who plays gay teen Kurt Hummel, explains that the issue is very close to him. "I remember one time someone screamed 'fag' at me in the hallway," he says.

The actor believes his show is doing something "important," and says his role as Kurt "means so much to so many people." This week, Colfer tells the New York Post, "the bullying just reaches a peak. Kurt gets fed up with it and stands up for himself for the first time."

Colfer relates to Kurt : "I personally was never physically bullied or tossed into dumpsters, but I definitely was verbally and socially bullied," he says. The upside? "It definitely taught me to be quick on my feet with witty comebacks."

I remember sitting in my room after someone had just yelled at me and I had nothing to say thinking about what I would say if I got into that situation again. I am constantly trying to figure a new way to chatter back at a bully to silence them. You defiantely get better at being quick on your feet for sure.
