One Million Moms were not pleased that JC Penny chose Ellen as their spokes person. Their reason… Ellen is gay and that is against traditional family values and JC Penny was wrong to make such a choice as the majority of shoppers there are Christians and people from traditional families. As a result of this, they will all stop shopping in JC Penny and the store will lose a lot of its customers.
When JC Penny did not back down, they posted a message on their facebook page which said:
“By jumping on the pro-gay bandwagon , JC Penny is attempting to gain a new target market and in the process will lose customers with traditional values that have been faithful to them over all these years. The majority at JC Penny shoppers will be offended and choose to no longer shop there.”
And now here is Ellen’s answer to One Million Moms on her own show. Incidentally One Million Moms have 40,000 likes on their facebook page and Ellen has 9 million twitter followers. Just a background on One Million Moms… it’s under the umbrella of AFA (American Family Association) … yah I know…right?
