Hallmark Channel reverses decision on same-sex marriage ads

Says it was the 'wrong decision'

Celebrities like Ellen Degeneres, Sandra Bernhard and William Shatner carry a little more weight than the group One Million Moms.

A complaint from the conservative group about commercials featuring same-sex marriage (“Hallmark movies are family-friendly, and you ruined it with the commercial.”) led to Hallmark Channel pulling the ads.

The decision led to a storm of protest from celebrities and advocacy groups, and #BoycottHallmarkChannel was trending on Twitter.

Hallmark issued a statement late Sunday night saying pulling the ads was the wrong decision and it was truly sorry for the hurt and disappointment it caused.

The commercials, for a wedding planning site, will be reinstated.
