Ellen Degeneres Jcpenney, jcpenney is trying to rebuild its customer base with help from a new spokeswoman, Ellen DeGeneres. But a group called One Million Moms is accusing the company of “jumping on the pro-gay bandwagon.”
DeGeneres responded to the group on her TV show Wednesday, saying, “I’m happy about (being the spokesperson), jcpenney is happy about it. But there’s this group called One Million Moms that is not happy about it. And normally I try not to pay attention to my haters, but this time I’d like to talk about it because my haters are my motivators.
This organization doesn’t think I should be the spokesperson because I am gay. So for those of you tuning in for the first time, I’m gay. I hope you were sitting down. … So 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.”
In a statement last week, jcpenney said it stands behind its partnership the talk show host.
On “CBS This Morning,” Thursday, jcpenney chief executive officer Ron Johnson, said the company “shares the same values” as DeGeneres and that the decision to have her as a spokesperson was a “no-brainer.”
