CONSERVATIVE GROUP SAYS OVER 60 COMPANIES HAVE JOINED IN BOYCOTT OF ‘ALL-AMERICAN MUSLIM’
by Becket Adams
As already reported on The Blaze, Lowe’s Home Improvement has pulled its sponsorship from TLC’s “All American Muslim” after a conservative group known as the Florida Family Association (FFA) emailed companies and asked them to do so.
The group said the program is “propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values.”
Now the group says Lowe’s isn’t the only company to pull its sponsorship from the controversial reality show.
“The conservative group claims that more than 60 companies that it emailed, from Amazon to McDonald’s, have also pulled adds from TLC‘s ’All-American Muslim,’” reports Business Insider.
However, Lowe’s is the only company to publicly confirm that it has withdrawn its sponsorship. If this is an indication that Lowe’s is the only company to pull its ads, and that the other companies contacted by the FFA haven’t, it could be a major PR nightmare for the home improvement giant.
“Lowe’s decision is controversial but understandable. As soon as the Florida Family Association put out a letter condemning the show, the home improvement store faced the possibility of a boycott by conservative Christians. Pulling the ads, Lowe’s risked outraging liberals,” writes Business Insider.
