**ATTENTION FRIENDS**

Can everyone please repost this on there wall and maybe the show will be taken off the air. 
Please boycott watching Amish Mafia. I was born and raised in the heart of Amish country, Lancaster PA. This show is so fake and they have hired people to play Amish. This show is putting a black eye on an amazing community. The Amish community would never agree to doing such a TV show. The Amish are proud hard working people that don't need bad publicity. If we can get the word out maybe the Discovery Channel will catch wind of this and put a stop to it. They didn't even speak true PA dutch when they were talking. Please pass the word.

I saw the previews for it and thought it was the dumbest looking show. I didn't even bother to watch it. I don't think it will last long.

As much as I can't stand a lot of the shows on tv now, I do not believe in boycotting them. Everyone has a right to choose to watch what they want. I choose to not watch the shows I find ridiculous or just down right dislike.

The Amish don't solve violence with violence

I haven't even seen it advertised. Doesn't sound like something I'd watch anyway! Hate they try to exploit people like this. But sadly, they do it everyday in the name of entertainment.

I admire the Amish. I have read a bit on them. True Amish don't like being recorded or photos taken.... correct?
