One Million Moms Protest Ellen

One Million Moms Protest Ellen, In the wake of the overturning of the controversial Proposition 8, Ellen DeGeneres shares her happiness with the audience on her talk show. She expresses her joy during the monologue on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in an episode which airs February 8.
“There was some good news for marriage equality in California yesterday,” she tells the viewers. “For a long time, same-sex marriage was not legal. Then, here in California, it was legal for like 25 minutes. Then it was not legal again because of something called Prop 8, which banned same-sex marriage.”
“And I’m happy to say that yesterday an appeals court ruled that Prop 8 was unconstitutional,” the 54-year-old host continues. “I’m sure the people who oppose it will try to appeal it – but it’s a step in the right direction. So I’m happy.”
From talking about the Prop 8, DeGeneres moves on to her next subject, the One Million Moms protest. “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,” she claims.
“This organization doesn’t think I should be the spokesperson because I’m gay,” she gives the audience a quick overview of how the protest against her arose. “They wanted to get me fired and I’m proud and happy to say that JC Penney stuck by their decision to make me their spokesperson.”
Calling JC Penney’s decision to defend her “great news,” she jokingly reasons, “Because I also need some new crew socks. I’m really going to clean up with this discount.” She adds, “I mean, if they have a problem with spokespeople, what about the Pillsbury doughboy? He runs around without any pants on, basically begging for people to poke his belly. What kind of message is that?”
On a more serious note, DeGeneres comments on the statement posted on One Million Mom Facebook page. “After JC Penney didn’t back down I thought the story would be over. It’s going to go away. Heard about it last week and it did not go away. The group has posted a message on their Facebook page,” she says.
