Rep. Chris Murphy Calls Lowe’s on Its Cowardice

Nailed it:

“Lowe’s defends itself by saying they’re pulling these ads because some of their customers have, quote, strong political and social views on this topic. Well congratulations to Lowe’s for acknowledging that there are some really bigoted people in the world. That doesn’t mean that Lowe’s or any other company should acquiesce to this kind of behavior. For instance, there are unfortunately a lot of people out there who still hold racist views about African-Americans, but I don’t think that Lowe’s is going to be pulling its ads from television shows featuring African-Americans.”
