The Real Reason Jen Lilley Left The Hallmark Channel
Lifestyle - News
Jen Lilley has been a mainstay in the world of Hallmark for years, having appeared in over 10 Hallmark films. Though her collaboration with the channel has been productive, Lilley surprised fans when she announced her departure from Hallmark in favor of one of its competitors.
In January 2022, Lilley announced a collaboration with GAC Media via an Instagram post, following other Hallmark stars who have left the network, like Danica McKellar and Trevor Donovan. Lilley's Instagram comments were soon flooded with messages criticizing GAC's questionable beginnings.
One user accused GAC of "[catering] to racist, homophobic audiences," while another advocated for more storylines with LGBTQ+ protagonists. Lilley called the criticisms hearsay, writing that the "GAC family is completely loving, diverse [...] I know this channel is full of genuine love, rooted in truth, and will do so much for so many".
