Boo Kodak!

What an awful message you're sending to the youths!

Kodak, a supposedly family friendly company, has pulled its ads from airing during Teen Nick's popular series, DeGrassi: The Next Generation.

Apparently, the company has been receiving a slew of emails from the Florida Family Association for supporting a show that “targets teens with gay propaganda and other immoral behavior.”

For those of you who are not familiar with the show, this season there are not only gay teen characters, but a transgender one as well. We assume this is the kind of "immoral behavior" this group is referring to and we're ashamed to say that this kind ignorance led Kodak to pull their promotion of the show.

What an absolute shame. Here's a show, trying to reach out to a group of teens who've probably never felt like they've had a role model before, on a network that promotes itself as being kid-friendly, and Kodak now is saying that it's wrong to support that.

What's wrong is making anyone feel less worthy of respect and consideration because of their sexuality or race or creed or anything!

A major company publicly siding with homophobia. How sad.

    They are actually yelling "Go Home Lakehurst" just sayin….

    Untrue. It's merely a pause in the advertising schedule with ads set to resume next week.

    Another way of looking at it is good for them for not bowing to political correctness. Kodak is allowed to have their morals and opinions like everyone else.

    Perez and his incessant pro-gay chatter is just tiresome. Has anyone noticed that less and less people are commenting here? It might be related.

    It's a Canadian show which shows how much freer we are in Canada. We don't get bent out of shape about these things. Degrassi is on regular TV up here.

    I love degrassi! its one of the best shows on tv, and has been for almost 10 years. I have been watching it since i was 14 or 15. It does spotlight alot of teen problems like homosexuality and transgender and shows teens how they can deal and that they are not alone. Kodak can go suck a big one.



  13. 13

    Hey Perez (and all)!
    Beth from Kodak here. Our new 'So Kodak' advertising campaign, Drake (who–we know!–started his career on Teen Nick), will continue to run on Degrassi. What you're seeing is a planned pause in our media schedule. We're gonna be on next week, so keep an eye out!

    GO KODAK!! Why shove all this sexuality down teens throats? This is ridiculous. If the gay kids can't handle how they feel about themselves that's their problem, why the hell is some tv show going to be their role model?! I thought tv wasn't supposed to be raising kids?? Oh yeah, another double standard of all these PC dumbasses.



  15. 15

    You're wishy-washy.



  16. 16

    Fudgepacking is not normal behavior Perez. Who wants shit on their dick?
    Fuck you're gross! I gotta go buy some film now.



  17. 17

    "GO HOME LAKEHURST!!!!" lmao… funny I know exactly what they're all yelling…



  18. 18

    Maybe if Perez did his research he'd realize that Kodak isn't pulling ad's from the show. They will resume next week. Just a typical action on his part by spouting out at the mouth without reviewing his facts.



  19. 19

    Degrassi is on regular TV here in Canada (the same channel showed the Sopranos uncut at 10 o'clock at night)

    So I guess we can expect a blog about great deals at Kodak from you next. I mean if you support Target…..

    I am glad to hear that this news is not what it was made out to be. Having visited the George Eastman House many times in my life, it would be a shame to know that the company he created was not supportive of the gay community - since George Eastman himself was rumored to be gay.



  24. 24

    So what? You can't control everything Perez, my kids would never watch this show. And when the prople speak, to continue buisness you must respond.

    And if this is true ( which is iffy) then I support Kodak and Degrassi~ another obv. trashy, slutty show aimed at our children.



  25. 25

    ummm, this show really isn't even regular programming anymore. those parents need to tell the kids to move on to the Boilin Point that's where it's at lol.



  26. 26

    degrassi is obnoxious — don't let my kids watch



  27. 27

    I need a new camera, LOOKS LIKE I WILL BE BUYING KODAK INSTEAD OF NIKON THIS TIME……..Just saying……



  28. 28

    all talking about gays, transgender and anything other like guys who wear womens thongs or whatever will burn in the hell they don't want to be in so desperately - they did not understand a single thing about love or being kind to the human being next to you.

    i am strictly straight and have many gay and bi friends, a transgender friend and a hermaphrodite friend - nothings wrong with them - they do their jobs - love their partners and are good friends.

    clearly you haven't ever seen the show.. but it doesn't just lightly touch on issues.. it like exploits some deep dramatic.. and even traumatizing issues that real kids go through.. it is controversial.. and you know what.. who really gives a shit of kodak doesnt want their ads run during a show that glorifies sex and acting outlandish….its their money.. they can spend it how to want to. Stop getting your panties in a bunch of every little thing. The more you cram this equality in peoples faces.. the more you sounds pathetic…!!! DO SOMETHING INSTEAD OF JUST RUNNING YOUR YAPP!! I dont see you dontating big funds or creating foundations for protecting youth.. start a help hotline or somethin you lame troll.

    Kind of ironic being George Eastman (Kodak founder) was as queer as they come.



  31. 31

    Who the fuck cares about gays? They are a minority that has no power at all but seem to think they do. Being gay is not normal. People do not have to accept abnormal with open arms. Deal with it.



  32. 32

    Parents have a right to feel this way. Children do not need to have sexual issues shoved down thier throat.



  33. 33

    Kids don't need sexual issues jammed down thier throats! Live your own life and don't make others have to watch it in every freakin show.



  34. 34

    My career allows me to print pictures of gay couples wedding days ON KODAK paper. So there.
