'All American Muslim': Lowe's Pulls Ads from TLC Show

all american muslim lowes Hardware store Lowe's has pulled ads from TLC's new series 'All American Muslim' after the Florida Family Association encouraged members to email the program's advertisers.

The conservative organization posted a letter reportedly from a Lowe's representative, stating that the retail giant has agreed to pull its ads from the docu-series: "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."

Lowe's then acknowledged its decision on Twitter. "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. Lowe's values diversity of thought in everyone, including our employees and prospective customers."

'All American Muslim' looks at the lives of five Muslim American families from the Dearborn, Michigan area, home to one of the most active Muslim communities in the country and the largest mosque in North America.

However, according to the conservative Florida Family Association, "The show profiles only Muslims that appear to be ordinary folks while excluding many Islamic believers whose agenda poses a clear and present danger to liberties and traditional values that the majority of Americans cherish."

TLC has yet to comment on Lowe's pulling its advertising from the show, but a TLC spokesperson told Entertainment Weekly: "We stand behind the show 'All American Muslim' and we're happy the show has strong advertising support."

'All American Muslim' airs Sundays at 10PM ET on TLC.

I am very disappointed to see people acting this way. What happened to religious freedom in america? Or does this not apply to muslims?

the reality is most muslims are just out trying to live like jews, christains, atheists, and everyone else.


people seriously need to educate themselves about the realities of these issues.

so many of these comments make americans look unintelligent and unable to utilize logic.

I bet these companies are among the many that hire illegals to fill American jobs. The Muslims in this program are Americans. I personally enjoy learning more of this religion and practices. I grew up in Detroit and know very little of this religion. I've lived in Las Vegas for many years and watched the unions send out illegals for the jobs here. They do not check , while American workers are 250 down on the call list, and the companies hire the illegals. Why aren't these companies pulling out there ads from the ones who hire illegals ??? Not every Muslim is a terrorist just like every Morman isn't a bigamist. Are all the Catholic priests child molesters? Some of you people are the terrorists!

Linda: Did u hear the latest story about the vigilante Christians "Savior Unit" who break into peoples homes and beat them. One victim was 70 years old. The "Savior Unit" practices hand to hand combat , reconnaissance, paramilitary operations and scripture reading? Since they have 2 members in jail, they are shorthanded. They need you!!!!!!

Wow, the comments on here are terrible. People really need to get educated on what Muslims really and truly believe in. The teachings are peaceful. The extremists are the problem, and most of the Muslims in the world don't agree with them one bit. There are extremists in every religion.

Thank you!!! So true!! I have been married to a Muslim for 25 years! People are such bigots! They would probably still have people being thrown in the water to see if they float or sink to be accused of witchcraft if we let them! So ridiculous!

"The show profiles only Muslims that appear to be ordinary folks while excluding many Islamic believers whose agenda poses a clear and present danger to liberties and traditional values that the majority of Americans cherish."

wait just a minute...so they are saying that this show only shows the good side of Islam instead of the baddies? They want an even, unbiased portrayal of Islam and want to show the crazy extremeist in the proper light they deserve? really? Are they seriously trying to say we have too many positive portrayals of muslims on television? this is literally the only show on television that portrays muslims in a positive light, we get it about the extremeists, the whole point of this show however is to showcase that not all Muslims are like that. This is a day and age where xenophobia against Muslims is at a high and we need to remember that everybody is an individual...just because one is a catholic priest doesn't make you a pedophile, just because some one was a german or japanese american during WWII didn't make you an enemy of the state, and similarly just because someone is Muslim doesn't mean you hate America or can't be an American. This show is just showcasing this.

I think TLC should pull this show. I, for one, don't want to watch a show about muslims trying to pretend their region isn't about wanting infidels dead. They aren't just like us, they aren't All-American, they are anti-American.
