Supergirl has had the best response to viewer who asked the show to ‘tone down the homosexual messages’.
If you weren’t aware, Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) and Maggie Sawyer (Floriana Lima) are an item on the show and perhaps the most adorable same-sex couple on TV right now.
But one mother was angry the couple were being intimate on screen.

‘Please tone down the homosexual messages,’ they said. ‘Used to watch this with my daughter’s [sic] now I have to explain to a 7 and 10 y.o. thx.’
But Supergirl’s official Twitter account had the perfect response.

@SuperGirlTheCW It’s easy to explain to a child that two people love each other. It’s hard to explain why you hate them for it.
