from charlotteobserver:

"Lowe's has been embroiled in controversy since, with some Muslims calling for a boycott and groups protesting outside of a Lowe's store in Michigan. The retailer also saw its Facebook page turn into a forum for an often vicious debate about Islam and America, with more than 28,000 comments eventually deleted."

'Support Lowe's
By Darrick Yezak (Contact)

To be delivered to: Robert A. Niblock, CEO, Lowe's

Lowe's is planning to stick by its decision to yank its ads from the TLC cable network show, "All-American Muslim" despite the growing opposition the home improvement chain is facing over the move.

Lowe's making this decision is in the spirit of The First Amendment the part of the Constitution that protects freedom of speech.
Support Lowe's decision to exercise their freedom to support whoever they choose by removing their ads from a TV show about American Muslims.'

Awww...the poor muslims. They just dont understand how America works.

Pulled advertizing? I mean really...its happened to how many PPL all across america??! Only muslims would make an issue out of it.

Well well...they tried to use the media to play the victim.

Instead it gave Americans a chance to tell them what we really think of them.

I LOVE America!!
