In reversal, Hallmark will reinstate same-sex marriage ads

Entertainment

NEW YORK (AP) – The Hallmark Channel says it will reinstate commercials featuring same-sex couples that it had pulled from the network.

Hallmark Cards CEO Mike Perry said in a statement Sunday that pulling the commercials β€œwas the wrong decision.” Several of the ads for the wedding planning site Zola featured two brides kissing at the altar.

The network had pulled the ads following a complaint from the conservative group One Million Moms, and protest was swift.

A BoycottHallmarkChannel hashtag was trending on Twitter at one point, and celebrities including Ellen DeGeneres, William Shatner and Sandra Bernhard blasted the decision on Twitter.
