GLAAD once applauded Ford‘s commitment to supporting the gay community, but they’ve been mysteriously silent about the company’s dissociation from their media awards.
The car company had been slated to sponsor the March 26, event, but the American Family Association-sponsored website, One News Now reports that they’ve backed out. Not surprisingly, AFA founder Don Wildmon takes some of the credit:
…Wildmon says he believes Ford’s cancellation of its sponsorship of the Annual GLAAD Media Awards is another direct result of the boycott by AFA, other pro-family groups, and many Americans in response to the automaker’s institutional support of homosexual causes and ideology. AFA also announced last week that Ford would no longer support homosexual publications with advertising.
