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?
“Funny that JC Penney thinks hiring an open homosexual spokesperson will help their business when most of their customers are traditional families,” the million moms write on their website. “DeGeneres is not a true representation of the type of families that shop at their store. The majority of JC Penney shoppers will be offended and choose to no longer shop there.”
Where have you been…all you million stupid Moms? Definitely not in the kitchen.. coz that would mean we are sexists and you are oppressed. In kitty parties??? But whichever obscure place you have been residing for the last decade, you haven’t realized that “majority of JC Penny shoppers” have evolved to be more accepting of LGBTQ people.
And as for Ellen … her shows are watched by millions of viewers across the country. Quite a few more millions than the 1 million moms who can actually use their free time into something productive..like making cup cakes for their kids than rallying against corporates for something stupid like this.
As Reuters rightly analyzes DeGeneres’ daytime talk show has more viewers than the American Family Association has moms. Between January 16 and January 22, “Ellen” averaged 3.38 million viewers — or 2.38 million more people than the AFA has moms.
Take that bitches.
