The group One Million Moms is urging other concerned parents to boycott the Olive Garden for being a sponsor of the Fox show ‘Lucifer’.
One Million Moms is a fundamentalist Christian organization aimed at stopping the media from creating and promoting content with sordid values that could negatively impact children. And boy, are these moms pissed—excuse me, irate—over a show that features the devil as the protagonist.
On their website, they refer to Lucifer’ as being “spiritually dangerous”. They write:
The character Lucifer Morningstar makes being the devil look cool, drives a fancy car, gets out of a speeding ticket, owns a nightclub in LA, and is irresistible to women.
They go on to say:
The premiere included graphic acts of violence, a nightclub featuring scantily-clad women, and a demon. The message of the show is clear. Lucifer is just misunderstood. He doesn’t want to be a bad guy, it’s God who is forcing him to play that role.
Olive Garden, the restaurant we’re all secretly ashamed to have enjoyed at one time or another, sponsors the show. Although Olive Garden brands itself as having a familial atmosphere, these moms are calling out the fine dining establishment on their hypocrisy. They’re encouraging moms to “let Olive Garden know that its advertising dollars are supporting sympathy towards the devil and glorifying Satan and that financial support should be pulled immediately.”
And ‘Lucifer’ isn’t the only network TV show that made these moms mad as hell. One Million Moms most recently urged Sleep Number to pull funding from the CBS sitcom ‘Angel from Hell’. They also criticized Mattel for featuring a girl with gay foster parents in ‘American Girl’ magazine.
But come on, we all know they secretly pined over Lady Gaga as the Countess in ‘AHS: Hotel’, right?
