After Ann Romney, who is reportedly anti-gay marriage, cited Modern Family as her favorite show, it was widely assumed someone involved with the gay-friendly program would respond. Yesterday, the reply came from co-creator Steve Levitan, though his words, while cutting, were a whole lot less vicious than many expected.
You can take a look at the response sent out via his Twitter account below…
”Thrilled Ann Romney says ModFam is her favorite show. We'll offer her the role of officiant at Mitch & Cam's wedding. As soon as it's legal.”
It’s always better when people respond to controversy how they naturally would. For example: Tom Morello is an aggressive guy. He’s very loudly and vibrantly fought for the causes he believes in for years. Thus, when vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan said he liked Rage Against The Machine’s music, it made sense he would fire off a long-winded letter full of hostility. Levitan, on the other hand, makes his career working with subtle comments and clever retorts. It makes sense he would have thanked the potential first lady while sliding in a socially aware jab.
In addition to the Romney’s, the Obama’s have been outspoken advocates of Modern Family, as well. New episodes are currently being filmed and will start airing on September 26th. With both presidential candidate families watching, the show might be one of the few issues the two men won’t fight over. Gay marriage, however, will definitely be at the forefront.
