JCPenny's Sticks It to Anti-Gay Group: We Keepin Ellen
If you haven't heard, a group called Onemillionmoms.com, a division of The American Association, launched a campaign against JCPenny's for making Elle Degeneres their spokesperson. They wanted to get Ellen canned because she is a lesbian.
JCPenny ultimately stuck by her with the CEO saying "I think Ellen is someone we all trust. She's lovable, likable, honest and funny, but at her soul, we trust her," he said.
Last week, a JC Penney spokesperson said in an e-mail to Reuters that the company "stands behind its partnership" with DeGeneres.
Thankful for all the support, Ellen publically thanked everyone on her show saying:
"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.
