Lowe's pulls ads from TV show about US Muslims
Lowe's home improvement chain criticized for pulling ads from TV show about American Muslims
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Lowe's home improvement stores have pulled ads from a reality TV show about American Muslims following protests from an evangelical Christian group, prompting talk of a boycott against the chain.

The retail giant stopped advertising on TLC's "All-American Muslim" after the Florida Family Association complained it was propaganda that hides Islam's "clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values."

Suehaila Amen, whose family is featured on "All-American Muslim," said she was disappointed Lowe's "would succumb to bigots ... "



Lowe's issued a statement Sunday apologizing for having "managed to make some people very unhappy." It didn't say whether it would reinstate the advertising.

California state Sen. Ted Lieu says he's considering a boycott of the chain and legislative action if the company doesn't reverse its decision.
