After the release of the Kohl's video, the company received both support and criticism on social media.

But on Facebook, one shopper commented: "I have shopped at your stores for about 10 years and I have enjoyed it. The inclusion of a same-sex couple in your ad suggests to me that you are for that lifestyle. I am not. I have never been a supporter of the gay lifestyle and will never be. I'm disappointed in your decision."
