Modern Family Creator Invites Fan Ann Romney to Officiate Gay Wedding on Show

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss



“Modern Family” creator Steve Levitan has extended a tongue-in-cheek offer to Ann Romney to appear on the show.

The potential future First Lady recently revealed to “Entertainment Tonight” that the comedy is her favorite show — an interesting choice since the show prominently features a gay couple portrayed by Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet.

Romney and husband Mitt, the Republican presidential nominee, have been vocal in their opposition to same-sex marriage.

That irony was not lost on Levitan, who sarcastically tweeted on Tuesday, “Thrilled Ann Romney says ModFam is her favorite show.”

“We’ll offer her the role of officiant at Mitch & Cam’s wedding,” he quipped. “As soon as it’s legal.”

What do you think of Levitan’s diss?
