HGTV drops 'Flip It Forward' after stars' extremism protested
The announcement from HGTV came via a tweet sent out Thursday (May 7):
HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers' series.-- HGTV (@hgtv) May 7, 2014
The day before, the website Right Wing Watch posted an article that detailed a history of activism from the twin Benham brothers. Protests of the 2012 Democratic National Convention, abortion clinics and more are detailed in the article.
In an interview on conservative radio, David Benham was also quoted as saying he wanted to stop "homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation."
"Flip It Forward" was actually meant to be an innocuous show in which the Benhams would help a family buy and then fix up a house in order to create their dream home.
