Perhaps inspired by the success of the Facebook campaign that landed Betty White her SNL hosting gig, a “Let Cam & Mitchell kiss on Modern Family!” Facebook group was launched over the weekend, created as a response to the fact that the breakout ABC comedy’s gay couple (played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonesteet) has never locked lips, while heterosexual couple Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire (Julie Bowen) have done so a number of times.
“Cam & Mitchell, the adorable gay couple on ABC’s Modern Family, have not been shown sharing even a brief kiss throughout the series’ first hit season. ABC isn’t afraid of gay characters, so why won’t they let them show some love?” the group writes as its credo.
The group has about 600 supporters so far, as well as a high-profile endorsement: Ferguson tweeted his approval over the weekend, reposting a link to the Facebook group and writing “I will sign it if you do too!” to his follower base. If they really want to galvanize the Internet, they should make it a Cam-Mitchell kiss in a hot tub with Betty White.
