Ellen DeGeneres Responds to JC Penney Protest, Lists Her Traditional Values

by at . Comments

Ellen DeGeneres was recently named a spokesperson for JC Penney.

Once this news broke, a conservative organization known as One Million Moms quickly launched an offensive to get the comedian fired from the gig. Bill O'Reilly addressed this topic on Fox News last night, taking the side that anyone is free to simply not shop at JC Penney... but to lobby for Ellen's ousting is un-American and wrong.

DeGeneres also touched on the scandal during her talk show monologue, keeping it short, but relying on two points:

  1. A number of comments left on the One Million Moms' own Facebook page are in support of JC Penney and express their authors' intention to shop there even more now.
  2. Have a problem with Ellen's "traditional values," as the group claims citizens should? Here they are: Honesty. Quality. Kindness. Compassion.

Vote now: Do you think Ellen should be fired from this role?

Ole Miss, Ellen, not Elien, is a woman. If you are going to believe in something you may want to know what it is that you are standing for or who you standing against. People are people and there is only one judge in this life. So if you believe in christianity you should also know that you should love people....all people and we will all have our day to be judged. Even you.

Oh-oh! Pressed submit before I finished---stinkin' phone!! Anyway, I'm so over right-wing hate groups hiding behind religion to justify their disgusting & biased intolerance. One Million Morons is nothing more than a hate group.
