ABC’s War on Adam Lambert Continues

Thursday, December 3, 2009

President Obama has the Afghanistan war and ABC has its war against American Idol’s second place winner, the openly gay, Adam Lambert.

The Disney-owned network has canceled yet another Adam Lambert appearance, this time on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

On his Twitter account, Lambert wrote:

“Yes, sadly friends, ABC has canceled my appearances on Kimmel and NYE. don’t blame them. It’s the FCC heat. I AM doing Leno though. And lookin into something for NYE (“New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.”). It’ll all blow over. Let’s focus on being positive!”

Previously, ABC canceled Lambert’s scheduled performance on “Good Morning America.” CBS’ “Early Show” stepped in booked Lambert instead, only to get blasted by viewers for blurring video footage showing Lambert kissing a male performer during the American Music Awards.

    What did this yoho expect prime time tv gee I’ll simulate putting my penis in another mans mouth

    ABC can’t have it both ways.

    They want to be hip and cool and host the AMA’s and book Jay-Z, and Lady GaGa, and Adam Lambert and when they attract a young, under 30 audience, then the suits freak when the performers do what people their age do on stage.

    ABC needs to hand the AMA’s over to cable and stick to the Jonas Brothers and 20/20.

    Love Glambert! He rocks and he’s the real winner of American Idol.

    In fact, I can’t even remember that other guy.

  4. Jim says:

    Otherwise sensible ABC should get a clue and grow up!

  5. Rock says:

    I just blogged about this and all I can say is thank God there’s other network that will welcome Glambert with open arms. He doesn’t need ABC to advance his career, and if it weren’t for Castle on Monday nights I wouldn’t bother watching the network.

  6. Harry says:

    Oh my God! Adam kissed his bassist! He simulated oral sex! Oh no! It’s the end of western civilization!

    ABC is cowardly. If you court youth you will get edgy and artists not concerned about the rinse set ladies who will the churches in the south. Maybe what ABC needs to do is sell the American Music Awards to MTV and focus on reality shows? This will give them the safe model they’re obviously more comfortable with.

    I called and emailed ABC complaining about their treatment of Adam. I wrote, “How many people complaining about their canceling Adam would it take for them to react?” “How many views did they loose by canceling Adam vs having him perform?” “I will not watch any ABC show Adam was canceled from: GMA, Jimmy Kimmel and the New Years show.”

    I then made three calls and emails complaining about
    1. MM’s song.
    2. Janet’s crotch grabbing at 8pm.
    3. The Chris Brown interview.

    Disney always has been nutty rightist. Walt Disney himself supported Hitler in the early 1930s.

    I am so impressed with the manner in which he is handling this situation! No apologies!!! I love it! I may have to buy his album just to support him … not really into his music though.
