The second one.
Jane also mentioned that one of the scenes Fox ordered cut included the explanation as to why Will no longer had his job in Washington. That sounds like something Family Guy would do. ("So, Lois, how did you lose your job with Fox News? - You know what? The episode's just about over; does it really matter?", and "Tell me, Brian, how could you have fathered a boy who's now a teenager if you're only eight years old yourself - Go complain on the Internet"). Also, somebody claims that the names on the stockings that Jane fills with coal are actresses who beat her out for various awards, although the only three people to have beaten her out for Emmys are Betty White, Julie Bowen, and Merritt Wever (which might have been the name on the last stocking).
Also, have they ever explained where Sugar and Joe went? As far as I know they should still be part of the Glee club.
So should Brittany - in fact, Santana did
mention that Brittany was still in Lima, yet she (and Finn (who hadn't died yet), for that matter) did not appear.
IIRC, there was also a bit of discontinuity involving someone's hair length.
