(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) Petitions and boycotts against ABC are building after the network unexpectedly canceled its hit “Last Man Standing,” a move critics believe was prompted by star Tim Allen’s outspoken conservative politics and support for President Trump.

“‘Last Man Standing’ is one of the only shows on broadcast television, and the only sitcom, that is not constantly shoving liberal ideals down the throats of the viewers. And sadly, that is likely the real reason the show has been cancelled,” said a new petition on Change.org which collected nearly 10,000 signatures overnight.
