Actress Ellen Barkin SLAMS Mormon NBC Affiliate for Refusing To Air Gay Comedy ‘The New Normal’

WKSL-TV a Salt Lake City, Utah Mormon owned NBC affiliate has announced that it has decided that it will not broadcast “New Normal” this fall, a serio-comedy about two gay mens quest to have a baby vis a surrogate mother. “After viewing the pilot episode of The New Normal, we have made the decision to keep it off our fall schedule,” Jeff Simpson told Desert News. “For our brand, this program simply feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time.

Incensed over the decision actress Ellen Barkin who has a role in the new television show,  took to Twitter to slam the Mormon owned station with charges of homophobia and bigotry.

Barkin tweeted, “Anyone in Utah interested in @NBCTheNewNormal please clog up @ksl5tv feed 4 their blatantly homophobic decision 2 not air the show #KSLBigots.” She wrote in another post, Shame on u @kslcom not airing @NBCTheNewNormal So L&O SVU (rape & child murder) is ok? But loving gay couple having a baby is inappropriate?”

Earlier this month the One Million Shrews  Moms protested the show, claiming that the “program is damaging to our culture,” and blasting NBC for “using public airwaves to continue to subject families to the decay of morals and values, and the sanctity of marriage in attempting to redefine marriage.”

KSL-TV thinks that THIS is too offensive and inappropriate
