Ellen DeGeneres, who was recently named a spokesperson for JCPenney, had to take a few moments during her talk show to put certain “defenders” of traditional values in their place. The a**holes over at One Million Moms called for a ban on the department store after the announcement. On their website, OMM urged members to “Make a personal phone call to JC Penney’s corporate headquarters and ask JC Penney to replace Ellen Degeneres as their new spokesperson immediately to remain neutral in the culture war.”
OMM also stated that they found it “funny that JC Penney thinks hiring an open homosexual spokesperson will help their business when most of its customers are traditional families.”
DeGeneres retaliated by showing comments on Facebook in support of DeGeneres’ new gig with JCPenney (which, BTW, is standing firm on their decision to stick with the comedienne).
Check out the video to see what DeGeneres had to say.
