Long story short, a conservative Christian group called the Florida Family Association, complained about how the show didn't match up with the typical Muslim stereotypes (all Muslims are terrorists, Islam promotes violence, and all that shiznit). The super smart people at Lowe's (I hope you caught the sarcasm there) listened to these other super smart people at FFA and decided to pull their ads from the show. Oh, how I love it when super smart people get together and make some super smart decisions.
|I never liked Lowe's anyways. Just ask my parents.|
Anyways, I'm sure you get the point. If they wanted to stay away from controversy, they should have pulled their ads from "Toddlers and Tiaras" or "19 Kids and Counting." Those shows make more headlines than "All-American Muslim" ever will.
|Where's my couch? ...I'm serious.|
Here's where I think the real problem lies. Some people just cannot grasp the whole idea of the existence of Muslims. If we're normal, there's a problem. If we're freaking psycho maniacs, there's a problem. The FFA decided long ago that they were going to have a problem with anything Muslim, whether the Muslims on the show were eating dinner or shopping for an upcoming baby. Because Muslims aren't allowed to do anything normal if they're not involved in anything radical as well. Duh. (P.S. that was sarcasm. You just never know these days if some people catch it or not so better be safe than sorry).
There's only one thing I have to say to those still uncomfortable with the whole idea of a "normal" Muslim: get over it. The quicker you get over it, the easier it will be for you because the Muslim American population is growing.
Also, Lowe's, I will not build something together with you.
