Urge Sleep Number to No Longer Sponsor 'American Housewife'
ABC’s “American Housewife” is an insult to all mothers and housewives. The network’s tagline calls the main character “America’s most relatable mom,” but One Million Moms disagrees. The character playing the mom sets a terrible example and is the farthest from a positive role model for mothers or any women. She goes as far as bashing her children and making them feel like a hindrance or catastrophe. Children will also see this program, or at least the previews - which air entirely too early for the content presented - and they will be effected negatively by this distasteful television family.
Offensive content in the program include sexual innuendos and suggestive dialogue between parents in front of their children, foul language by teen children, and a mom who cusses at the kids.
One of the three child cast members is a Disney star, which will attract young viewers. The content in this program is inappropriate for children and not for family viewing. This is extremely disturbing since it involves a young cast. ABC continues to air “American Housewife” on Wednesday evenings at 8:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. CT.
Please use the information we have provided on our website to contact Sleep Number and ask that they pull their financial support from “American Housewife” before next week’s episode.
Urge advertisers to place the program on their "do not advertise" list in protest of the attempt to desensitize America and our children by promoting inappropriate behavior.
