Chip and Joanna Gaines -- Raked by the Leftwing Last Year For Not Featuring Enough Gay Couples (in Waco, Texas) on Their Show -- Slammed with $200,000 in EPA Fines and Required Abatements

I'm not saying there's a connection.

But I would say that people who offend the leftwing Deep State tend to get plenty of government scrutiny and hassle.

In fairness, though, this does seem like the kind of thing the EPA would go after you for (so long as you're not Protected), given that the potential violations were seen on TV.

The stars of the hit HGTV renovation show "Fixer Upper" violated federal regulations for mishandling lead-based paint, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said.

Magnolia Homes, owned by "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines, agreed Tuesday to pay a $40,000 fine to the EPA and complete $160,000 of lead abatement work around their hometown of Waco, Texas, among other measures, as part of the settlement with the federal government.

...

The EPA says the program didn't show the Gaineses and others taking proper precautions to avoid lead exposure to workers and residents when working on buildings built before 1978 that could have lead-based paint.
