Just purchased remaining spots for #allamericanmuslim for next week. The show is now sold out! keep your money @lowes and we will keep ours.
Hip hop mogul Russell Simmons • Revealing (via Twitter) that he had purchased the spaces that Lowe’s had vacated when they backed down to pressure over their advertising on the TLC reality program “All-American Muslim.” According to his rep, he bought two spots, but hasn’t decided what to put in them yet. Russell, you’re a badass. Meanwhile, Lowe’s is defending its decision, claiming it was one of “dozens” of companies that had pulled advertising support from the show — a claim difficult to back up, especially considering that TLC is claiming that the show is doing well advertiser-wise. The home improvement chain bent to pressure from an obscure group called the Florida Family Association in removing their ads from the program. source (via • follow)

The main purpose of the Florida Family Association seems to be getting name brands to stop advertising on television programs that dare talk about subjects such as transgenderism, Islam, or homosexuality. They got Lowe’s to pull ads from a reality show called ”All-American Muslim” — a move already receiving blowback from progressives. The FFA is trying for a conservative twist on the mechanism used to hurt Glenn Beck’s advertiser base back in 2009. But, here’s the real question: Who’s gonna be the first brand to ask the Florida Family Association to take their logo off of their Web site? We see tons of brands and a site which is arguably as damaging the other way.
