Adam Lambert's Mustache Slammed By GQ Magazine

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is calling for Twitter users to speak out to GQ magazine, after the men's style publication's criticism of pop singer Adam Lambert's facial hair.

Earlier today, GQ tweeted:

GQ Fashion
Rules of Street Style: If you have testosterone problems, a mustache doesn't always help.

The tweet was a reference to Lambert's April appearance in Hollywood, during which the openly gay star appeared with facial hair, which the magazine named among its "best and worst" style moments of the year (presumably the latter). "If you wear make-up, do not grow a mustache," the caption under Lambert's picture reads on the magazine's site.

In response to GQ's tweet, GLAAD noted:

Tell that being is not a "testosterone problem": Please retweet!

UPDATE: GQ has now moved the original tweet and apologized:

GQ Fashion
Re: our Lambert tweet, we were thoughtless and apologize. We shouldn't make stupid jokes about people's testosterone. As always, we learn.

Lambert, whose facial hair has been a hot topic in the blogosphere for some time, has thus far not replied to any of the tweets.

Take a look at some of Lambert's best moments below:

Though Lambert moved "Idol" audiences and judges to standing ovations with his weekly performances (including his acoustic cover of Tears for Fears' hit "Mad World") during the eighth season, he lost the title to Kris Allen.
