Honorable: Lowe‘s Pulls Its Ads from TLC’s ‘All-American Muslim’

Hardware retail giant Lowe’s has pulled its commercials from all future episodes of TLC’s reality TV show “All-American Muslim,” the chain said this week.

The conservative Florida Family Association has been leading a campaign to get retailers to pull their advertisements from the show. On Tuesday, it posted an email from a Lowe‘s representative who said Lowe’s will no longer be advertising during “All-American Muslim,” which chronicles the lives of several Muslim-American families living in Dearborn, Mich.

“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,” the Lowe’s representative said.

In a post on its official Twitter feed Friday, Lowe’s wrote in response to another tweet: “We did not pull our ads based solely on the complaints or emails of any one group. It is never our intent to alienate anyone.”

A Lowe’s spokeswoman later elaborated to the Hollywood Reporter, saying, “We understand the program raised concerns, complaints or issues from multiple sides of the viewer spectrum, which we found after doing research of news articles and blogs covering the show. We based our decision to pull the advertising on this research and after hearing the concerns we received through emails, calls, through social media and in news reports.”

A TLC spokeswoman declined to comment to the Hollywood Reporter on the issue, but said, “There is strong advertising support for the show.”

The Florida Family Association, which called the show “propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values,” has been encouraging supporters to email retailers whose commercials have aired during the show. The group claimed it has not seen this strong a response to any other issue in its 23 years of existence. You can view a list of the retailers it’s targeting here.

Lowe’s decision to pull its ads garnered several angry responses online: One Twitter user who goes by the name @LawyerAsif wrote: “your actions did alienate people and you knew it would. Will you next consider KKKs demands to pull ads from BET?”

  1. Not only do Shiates and Sunnis fight with Christians, Hindus and Jews and now with Buddhist as well while fighting with each other, Sunnis and Shiates also attack other MUSLIMS too! Such as the Ahmadiyyas, Submitters and any other MUSLIMS who are not part of their Hadthie Orthodoxy. What has NOT been talked about much is the love of Sunnis cutting off little boys ORGANS to make them into HIJRAS _second class citizen manmade woman. While at the same time making GOD made woman into THIRD class citizens, also allowing and doing marriages to little girls six years old and younger. And having incest marriages within their own families. Sunni and Shiate Hadithies are teaching, crazy Hadith to Black Americans such as to kill their female family members for not wearing ARAB or PAKISTANI clothes (see the Chicago story Aug.2010). So as long as the Moderate Muslims are not speaking out about these things then the so called are Moderate Muslims are just pawns of the Islamic Terrorists

    sign an AMERICAN MUSLIM who is NOT a HADITHIE!!
