Conservatives on social media call for boycott of ABC after TV network cancels highly rated sitcom Last Man Standing starring pro-TrumpTim Allen
ABC is facing calls from angry conservatives on social media to boycott the television network on Monday after it was learned that a popular sitcom starring right-leaning actor Tim Allen was canceled.
The hashtag #BoycottABC was trending on Twitter Monday in response to the network’s decision not to renew Last Man Standing for a seventh season, even though it is one of ABC’s most highly rated shows.
Last Man Standing is a comedy that tells the story of the main protagonist, Mike Baxter, played by Allen.
Baxter is ‘the quintessential man’s man’ known for his old-fashioned views.
A devout Christian and outspoken political conservative who supported Donald Trump, Baxter works at a sporting good retailer, Outdoor Man, which sells guns, jerky, and camouflage recliners, according toGoogle.
