The Florida Family Association group sent three email alerts in November to inform its members about "All-American Muslim," encouraging supporters to send an email to companies, asking that they pull their ads from the show.

The pre-written email had the subject line, "Please do not support TLC propaganda" and said, in part: "The show profiles only Muslims that appear to be ordinary folks while excluding many Islamic believers whose agenda poses a clear and present danger to the liberties and traditional values that the majority of Americans cherish."

"I'm saddened that any place of business would succumb to bigots and people trying to perpetuate their negative views on an entire community," Suehaila Amen, a judicial aide in Dearborn who is featured on the TLC show with her family, told The Detroit News on Sunday.

"This can happen to any member of a minority group," Amen said. "This country was not founded on hatred or racism. It was founded on inclusion and diversity."

Lowe's has not yet commented on whether or not it will reinstate its ads on the show.
