Earlier this week, Facebook users, high on their Betty White on SNL coup, started a “Let Cam & Mitchell kiss on Modern Family!” group, noting that while the hetero couples on the sitcom have smooched on camera, homosexual couple Mitchell and Cam never have. Today, the show’s producers issued a statement on the matter:
Cameron and Mitchell are a loving, grounded, committed, and demonstrably affectionate couple and have been from the beginning of the series. It happens that we have an episode in the works that addresses Mitchell’s slight discomfort with public displays of affection. It will air in the fall and until then, as Phil Dunphy would say, everyone please chillax.
