TV stations cut away from gay marriage during Rose Parade
Did you miss the gay wedding aboard the AIDS Healthcare Foundation float during the 125th Rose Parade? You're not alone. Multiple TV stations cut away from the float quickly or entirely during the Wednesday morning live broadcast. Many took to Twitter to express their feelings about the decision.
