Katie Maloney dropped a new episode of her podcast “You’re Gonna Love Me” on November 25 with a special guest, actress Danica McKellar.

The “Vanderpump Rules” star wrote in the post’s caption, “It was such a joy to have @danicamckellar on my podcast today! We talked about holiday traditions, her hallmark Christmas Movies and of course her brand new movie that premieres tonight called Christmas At The Drive-In on Great American Family at 8pm ET 5pm PT.”

McKellar commented on the post thanking Maloney for the “fun conversation,” but several other commenters criticized the VPR star for promoting the movie on the controversial Great American Family network. The network launched in September 2021 and made headlines in the following year as several Hallmark stars signed with the newer cable channel, including McKellar and Trevor Donovan.

In 2022, Candace Cameron Bure also signed a deal with Great American Family to develop, produce and star in content. However, she soon angered a lot of people by stating that the channel’s Christmas movies wouldn’t be featuring same-sex couples. “I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core,” Bure told the Wall Street Journal in November 2022.

Fans Criticized Katie Maloney in the Comments for Promoting What They Said Was an ‘Anti-LGBTQ+’ Channel

Many of the posts’ comments were in reference to the Great American Family channel and criticized Maloney for promoting one of its movies as one person wrote, “Did you ask about the theme of the great American family network focusing only on ‘traditional marriages’ which doesn’t include lgbtq+ marriages to them?”

Someone else asked Maloney, “Why promote an anti-LGBTQ network?” Someone else said they were “unfollowing” Maloney while another wrote, “WTAF..you’re supporting an anti-LGBTQ company. You have definitely lost a follower with supporting gac & @danicamckellar who clearly supports their ideals. Pretty shameful and I won’t support this #girlbye.”

However, others shared excitement over the episode as they said, “She’s one of my favorites in the hallmark Christmas movies.” Another wrote, “Wow such a wonderful career actor!!”
