Earlier today, HGTV announced - via a one-sentence statement on its Facebook page - that it will NOT move ahead with this home-redesign series, due to the views of hosts Jason and David Benham.
The sons of a well-known evangelical Christian minister, the Benham brothers have come under fire their alleged anti-homosexual beliefs, along with their connection to a father who protested an interfaith Sandy Hook memorial service.
Flip Benham, the leader of Operation Save America, has also openly opposed mosques, LGBT rights and abortion rights.
In 2012, David Benham led a prayer rally outside the Democratic National Convention and said "homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation."
Now, in response to their show being pulled from HGTV, the siblings have released a statement. It reads:
"As Christians we are called to love our fellow man. Anyone who suggests that we hate homosexuals or people of other faiths is either misinformed or lying ... we do not, nor will we ever discriminate against people who do not share our views."
And it concludes:
"We were saddened to hear HGTV's decision. With all of the grotesque things that can be seen and heard on television today you would think there would be room for two twin brothers who are faithful to our families, committed to biblical principles, and dedicated professionals. If our faith costs us a television show then so be it."
Do you think HGTV should have pulled Flip It Forward? And do the Benham belong on this list?
Isaiah Washington got the boot from Grey's Anatomy, and pretty much derailed his own career, by referring to then co-star T.R. Knight by a gay slur ... then doing it again whilst insisting he didn't do it.
In 1991, Gibson told Spanish newspaper El Pais: âWith this look, whoâs going to think Iâm gay? I donât lend myself to that type of confusion. Do I look like a homosexual? Do I talk like them? Do I move like them?â Was this a long time ago? Yes. But has Gibson's recent behavior made you think he's grown more tolerant?
