Lowe’s Pulls Ads from Muslim Show

For all its construction wherewithal, Lowe’s Home Improvement isn’t very good at building bridges: The store has pulled its ads from TLC’s “All-American Muslim.” The move comes after the Florida Family Association, a conservative group, complained that the show was “propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda's clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values." Lowe’s said it was sorry for having "managed to make some people very unhappy,” and that “We believe it is best to respectfully defer to communities.” In reaction, a state senator from southern California is considering organizing a boycott of Lowe’s.
