WOW! Hallmark REINSTATES Lesbian Kissing Ads – WATCH

NEW YORK (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The Hallmark Channel initially said it “was distracting from the purpose of our network,” when addressing why it pulled a wedding commercial featuring a lesbian couple. Now the channel says it made a “wrong decision,” and will reinstate commercials featuring same-sex couples.

It began with a complaint from a conservative group and the earlier decision by Crown Media, Hallmark’s parent company, to pull several ads for the wedding planning site Zola featuring two brides kissing at the altar launched a storm of protest. Celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres and William Shatner criticized the move and the hashtag #BoycottHallmarkChannel was trending on Twitter at one point.
