Though she claims not to pay attention to her haters, Ellen DeGeneres nonetheless has addressed an anti-gay organization’s plea to have her fired as the new spokesperson for JC Penney.
On an episode of her show today, DeGeneres speaks at length about the online boycott launched by OneMillionMoms.com, a division of the American Family Association, who have pressed the retail chain to replace the talk show host because she is a lesbian.
“They wanted to get me fired, and I’m proud and happy to say that JCPenney stuck by their decision to make me their spokesperson,” she says. “Which is great news for me because I also need some new crew socks.”
I’ve never been a huge fan of Ellen but this kind of stuff is ridiculous.
