A pro-family group is rebuking Toys"R"Us for advertising on an animated show that exposes children to LBGT content and crude language.
This is not the first time The Loud House, which airs weekdays on Nickelodeon at 5:00 pm Eastern/4:00 pm Central, has warranted a warning from One Million Moms, a ministry of the American Family Association. Monica Cole, director of the decency advocacy organization, says the network is using the show to promote controversial topics to children.
"They're attempting to desensitize young viewers by normalizing same-gender marriage with one sister coming out as bi-sexual and then with foul language being used," she reports. "Even though it's bleeped out, it's the predominant topic of one entire episode."
Cole urges One Million Moms members to contact Toys"R"Us, a frequent advertiser during The Loud House.
"Toys"R"Us being a sponsor, it is shocking that they would support a program and sponsor a program that is pushing an agenda on controversial topics," she contends.
One Million Moms is also contacting Connections Academy, an online free public school, about advertising during the show. And Cole goes on to point out that Nickelodeon should stick to entertaining with family-friendly programming instead of pushing an agenda and promoting foul language.
