After pulling ads from a TLC reality show about American Muslims, Lowe’s Home Improvement is facing a backlash, reports the Associated Press.
The company pulled its ads from "All-American Muslim" after a conservative group, the Florida Family Association, protested the program, calling it "propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values," the story says.
Now Lowe’s is facing the possibility of a boycott called by California state Sen. Ted Lieu, who characterized the move by Lowe’s as "un-American" and "naked religious bigotry," the story says.
Lowe’s issued a statement apologizing for making "some people very unhappy," the piece adds.
The TLC show follows five families in Dearborn, Mich., a suburb of Detroit with a big Arab-American and Muslim population, the story notes.
