As we mentioned recently, ABC has cancelled Tim Allen’s show “Last Man Standing” despite the fact that the ratings are extremely high. Many people believe the cancellation was politically motivated because Allen is a conservative.
Now the network is facing boycotts.

Boycott hits ABC over canceling Tim Allen hit ‘Last Man Standing’
Petitions and boycotts against ABC are building after the network unexpectedly canceled its hit “Last Man Standing,” a move critics believe was prompted by star Tim Allen’s outspoken conservative politics and support for President Trump.
“‘Last Man Standing’ is one of the only shows on broadcast television, and the only sitcom, that is not constantly shoving liberal ideals down the throats of the viewers. And sadly, that is likely the real reason the show has been cancelled,” said a new petition on Change.org which collected nearly 10,000 signatures overnight.
“With a plethora of ultra-liberal shows available on television, this show stood out from the rest and motivated conservatives who voted for President Trump. Please demand that Congress investigate whether LMS was cancelled for political reasons,” said another on PetitionCongress.org.
Even Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has weighed in on this:

This was one of the only conservative sitcoms on television.
Why did they have to cancel it?
