The HGTV network says it's pulling the plug on an upcoming real estate show after it was pointed out one of its hosts has campaigned against gay marriage and denounced homosexuality.

The show is called "Flip it Forward" and was to debut in October. If would have featured twins David and Jason Benham of the Benham Brothers buying and renovating real estate.

After the network announced the show was upcoming, the lobbying group Right Wing Watch pointed out David Benham is an "anti-gay extremist" and reported quotes he made about homosexuality.

HGTV issued a statement this week saying it is "not moving forward" with the series.

The network said it wouldn't explain why.
