DEARBORN, Mich., — U.S. based home improvement retail chain, Lowe’s, has recently discontinued advertising on the TLC reality show, All American Muslim, which depicts the lives of five Muslim families in Michigan, reports the Arab American News.

According to the news report, significant complaints came from the Florida Family Association (FFA) because the “series is propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional value.”

American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) Legal Director Abed Ayoub told the Arab American News “the Muslim-American community has nearly $200 billion dollars in spending power in the United States. At a time when many corporations are courting the American-Muslim market, it makes absolutely no sense that any corporation, including Lowe’s,  that has multiple locations in metropolitan areas with high Arab and Muslim American populations, would take such action.”

Lowe’s did not return calls to the Arab American News for a comment as of its press time.
