A coterie of Karens, banded together under the banner "One Million Moms," have called for a boycott of the Hallmark Channel after it ran a commercial that showed a married couple kissing. The Karens of OMM aren't against marriage, nor the occasional televised depiction of a chaste kiss between a married couple. But the fact that the kissers were women, gave OMM the vapors. It's a sad time for both the Hallmark Network and One Million Moms, because I imagine OMM makes up about 95% of the network's audience and now these women won't have anything to watch but Fox News and videos of YouTube rallies starring their beloved moral-beacon of a president.

The organization posted a call to action on its website earlier this week after one of the wedding website’s new ads was seen on the family channel, noting on its campaign page that Hallmark’s commercials are “usually safe for family viewing. But unfortunately, that is not the case anymore.” The group’s chief complaint was a kiss shared between the two brides in the ad.
”Recently, One Million Moms received concerns about Hallmark airing a commercial from Zola.com in which two lesbians are shown kissing at the end of their wedding ceremony,” the post reads. “Similar concerns from regular viewers are posted on an online complaint board for the Hallmark Channel.”
The parent organization of One Million Moms is the American Family Association, which is listed as hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

If there’s any knock on most smartwatches, up to and including the industry-leading Apple Watch, it’s probably that the bands aren’t…well, they aren’t usually the greatest. While Apple is certainly making strides in the watchband game, most models are just as black, boring and nondescript as you’d expect from a tech company. And where many […]
