HGTV Cancels Homophobes' Show

Last evening I wonder in a post that has seen an amazing number of visits WTF was HGTV thinking when it signed on to a show featuring the vitriolically anti-gay Benham brothers.  My prior post highlighted some of what Right Wing Watch had discovered about the brothers. Obviously, someone did NOT research these guys.  The backlash from viewers has apparently been off the charts and HGTV just announced on Facebook that it is cancelling the show:
HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers' series.
One can only hope that heads will roll at HGTV for the failure of individuals to do any kind of vetting of the Benham brothers and setting the channel up for a PR disaster.  Meanwhile, it is a safe bet that the Benhams will be held up as the latest martyrs of "homosexual intolerance."
