So much drama surrounding this show!
To recap, earlier this month, Visionaire Media filed a lawsuit against Discovery Communications, claiming they stole the idea for TLC's All-American Muslim from them!
Then, the Florida Family Association spoke out against the show, which "follows five muslim families living in Michigan and documents discrimination they face on a regular basis." As a result, Lowes made the cowardly decision to pull their ads from the show.

So if you haven't already heard, Lowes made the very backward decision to pull their advertising from TLC's All-American Muslim after right-wing
hate-mongers activists pressured them to do so.
As soon as the news hit, stars like Russell Simmons and Mia Farrow urged everyone to boycott the company.
But we're super proud and impressed to see that Russell has taken the next step in his stand for America and the peaceful AMERICAN Muslims living in this beautiful country.
With the show stood up by Lowes, he bought ALL of the advertising space, tweeting:

Are U as pissed off at Lowes for their bigoted decision to pull advertising from TLC's All-American Muslim as we are?
Good! You're not alone! Actress Mia Farrow and hip-hop icon Russell Simmons are too!
After hearing the distressing news, Mia asked her followers to join her in a boycott of the home improvement chain, tweeting:

OMG! We can't believe this is actually happening! We can't believe we actually have to write about this nonsense! We can't believe companies like Lowes would actually LISTEN to this nonsense!
TLC's reality show All-American Muslim, which follows five muslim families living in Michigan and documents discrimination they face on a regular basis, is facing discrimination from advertisers!
After cowardly buckling to protests from the cray cray's of the Florida Family Association, Lowes has pulled their advertisements from the show because the FFA believes:
