Hallmark Under Fire For Dropping 'Gay' From Christmas Lyric

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Hallmark says it was trying to be sensitive. The greeting card company sold a Christmas ornament, a tiny sweater with words playing off a line of a Christmas song: Don we now our gay apparel. They dropped the word gay. The ornament says: Don we now our fun apparel. This brought criticism from people accusing Hallmark of political correctness and anti-gay bias.

Hallmark says it was trying to avoid misinterpretation and should never have made the change. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
