Blind Item #4

This is going to be a bad week for this cable channel that is already having a bad week. Apparently they have a quota for persons of color they will allow in movies that you are not allowed to go over and strict guidelines about how many people of color are allowed on their live shows each week.

They also yanked some LGBT themed wedding ads.

BBC!

Pallored folk are not represented with demographic or historical demographic accuracy.

Hallmark....
Some LGBT uproar.
It was in news here too.

Mary Beard thinks BBC research is quite accurate.

hallmark flipping to the highest bidder

Hallmark has live shows? It’s not just movies 24/7??

SNL had a funny bit this weekend called The Hallmark Dating Show in which Chris Redd played "the one black guy" in the small town with a Christmas tree farm run by a single, hunky (white) man, etc.

I call BULL CRAP on this one. Powers that be are obviously going after the H channel hard. Entity is starting to sound like a globalist minion

Who the hell thinks that woke lesbians watch the Hallmark channel?
This was the dumbest move since Chick fil A caved.

Hallmark would be smart listening to their audience, not the random people, who never watch their channel.

Thank you

Hallmark

Being bigots with LGBT, and it's clear they don't do many movies with people of color.

Sd Auntie said...

Rather eat dirt than watch that channel. So boring

KnitWit said...

And BET has no white people. And the religious networks no athiests. So what!

Sd Auntie said...

Bet has plenty. LOl. The Parkers and other shows. .

I genuinely don’t understand why the Hallmark channel exists. It’s appalling, and actively erodes brain function....

Count Jerkula said...

This is why affirmative action is bad. Once ya start forcing quotas, they hit a # and move on.

DJS NOLA said...

so hallmark is the white BET and Vh1? whats the problem there?

OKay said...

I totally believe and accept that racism exists. But putting work into COUNTING to make sure only certain numbers are reached? Seems...unlikely.

Astra Worthington said...

Let’s put straights on LOGO then. It’s only fair.

Let people watch what they want. So what if there isn’t any “diversity”? Watch something else. Get over yourselves.

Studio54 said...

A lot of women (white) love the Hallmark Channel. Why? Because it's true escapist TV. Reality TV is not escapist, these shows on Hallmark are fiction escapist TV.

Studio54 said...

Cable is about narrow casting. It's anti-diversity, it's for people who like a type of subject, such as old movies, crime, schmaltzy love stories, football, hockey, boxing, etc. Minority channels, BET, Univision, OWN. It is the same with news, CNN and MSNBC for liberals, Fox for the right wing.

Sea Hag said...

What Studio 54 said.

kennymac said...

Who cares? It’s not like the alphabet people will actually watch that channel. If I was the Hallmark CEO I’d tell these diversity bean counters to go fuck themselves.

@J, I fucking love Mary Beard
