Remember One Million Moms, the group that demanded a boycott of JC Penney’s because they hired Ellen Degeneres as a celebrity endorser? Well Penney’s has a Christmas ad out with her in it and those
million couple hundred moms are back at it again:
“Since April, JC Penney’s has not aired Ellen DeGeneres in one of their commercials until now. A new JCP ad features Ellen and three elves,” the perpetually-offended-by-something group said. “JCP has made their choice to offend a huge majority of their customers again. Christians must now vote with their wallets.”
The ad in question features DeGeneres in what looks like a North Pole diner, meeting with several of Santa’s elves to plead with them to increase toy production for an upcoming JC Penney’s promotional giveaway.
OMG! She’s going to be giving away lesbian toys! The kids will be corrupted! I find it hilarious that these bigots think that most people give a damn about Ellen being gay. She’s one of the most popular figures in the country, for crying out loud. And this will do as much damage as their last boycott, which was none at all.
And remember, boycotts are wrong because they’re “economic warfare against their political enemies” and conservatives “don’t have anything like that.” The American Family Association says so.
