HGTV has decided to pull the plug on Flip it Forward.
The new series scheduled to debut in October has been canceled by the network, when Right Wing Watch reported that the hosts and twin brothers of the program, Jason and David Benham, were anti-gay.
HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers' series," HGTV tweeted on Wednesday.

In Flip it Forward, the successful entrepreneurs would "help families buy the homes they never thought they could afford. In each episode, the guys help a deserving family find a fixer-upper and transform it into their forever home - with a healthy dose of sibling rivalry between the brothers along the way."
In an article published Tuesday, Right Wing Watch reported that in 2012 David Benham led a protest outside of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte N.C., where he told a conservative radio host that the nation needed to stop "homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation” and “demonic ideologies tak[ing] our universities and our public school systems."
The Benham brothers – David and Jason joins Erin Burnett Thursday night at 7pm ET on CNN.
