Actress Ellen Barkin has described the decision by a Utah-based NBC affiliate to not air the gay-themed sitcom The New Normal as “homophobic.”

The New Normal features a gay couple (played by Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha) trying to start a family and the surrogate mother (Georgia King) who comes to their aid.

Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL-TV parent company of the Mormon Church-owned Bonneville International, on Friday told Deseret News that the show “feels inappropriate.”

Simpson reportedly cited crude dialogue and offensive characterizations as reasons for keeping the show off its fall schedule.

Barkin, who co-stars in the upcoming sitcom from Glee creator Ryan Murphy, took to Twitter to express herself.

“Anyone in Utah interested in @NBCTheNewNormal please clog up @KSL5TV feed 4 their blatantly homophic [sic] decision 2 not air the show #KSLBigots,” she messaged her more than 102,000 Twitter followers.

“So L&O SVU (rape and child murder) is ok? But loving gay couple having a baby is inappropriate,” she added. “Shame on u @kslcom.”

The station's decision comes a month after the Christian conservative group One Million Moms called for an ad boycott against the show.
