Disney’s “Good Luck Charlie” is going out with a bang—an explosive, controversial one.
The producers of the typically family-friendly show, which premiered in 2010, chose to feature a lesbian couple before the hit program, currently in its last season, goes off air for good.
In a Sunday, Jan. 26, episode, parents Bob (Eric Allen Kramer) and Amy (Leigh Allyn Baker) had a minor tiff over the name of the mom of one of their daughter’s friends who was coming over for a playdate: one thought her name was Susan and the other thought it was Cheryl.
The big reveal shared the truth with the audience: the young visitor had “two moms,” Susan and Cheryl, a lesbian couple.
According to Christian Post, this did not sit well at all with parents who don’t believe Disney should introduce the topic of homosexuality to its young audience. “Some have criticized the network for the move, saying it was inappropriate to bring such a political and divisive subject onto a children’s TV program,” said writer Morgan Lee.
Conservative watchdog group One Million Moms chimed in and said in a statement, “Just because something may be legal or because some are choosing a lifestyle doesn’t make it morally correct.”
OMM continued, “Disney should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda.”
