St. Louis groups protest Kirkwood Walmart, Lowe's
Members of Occupy St. Louis and the Council on American-Islamic Relations joined forces Sunday afternoon to protest outside the Kirkwood Walmart and Lowe's over advertising dispute.
Organizers say they are protesting Lowe's decision to pull its advertising funds from TLC's television series "All-American Muslim". Protesters are accusing Lowe's of pulling the ads after pressure from the Florida Family Association.
Lowe's officials say the program brought up a "lightning rod" of complaints and they didn't want their ads to be associated with the controversy.
