Hardware store giant Lowe’s has pulled its advertising from “All-American Muslims,” a TLC reality television show that is attempting to provide a positive portrayal of Muslim life.
The ad removal came after the Florida Family Association encouraged members to email the program’s advertisers. The Florida Family Association claimed that the show only portrays Muslims who are ordinary people and excludes Islamic believers with alternative agendas:
“Clearly this program is attempting to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad and to influence them to believe that being concerned about the jihad threat would somehow victimize these nice people in this show.”
The organization later posted a note that they claimed was from Lowe’s headquarters stating the following:
“While we continue to advertise on various cable networks, including TLC, there are certain programs that do not meet Lowe’s advertising guidelines, including the show you brought to our attention. Lowe’s will no longer be advertising on that program.”
GlobalGrind will not stand for this type of bigotry and hatred in a country that celebrates life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Please join us in our campaign against Lowe’s and any other advertiser who pulls their money form “All-American Muslims,” because the portrayal is “positive.”
