Although talk show host Ellen Degeneres is quite popular with the public, there is one organization that wasn’t happy about her becoming the spokes woman for retail store J.C. Penney.
The One Million Moms organization wanted J.C. Penney to rethink their hiring of Degeneres saying, “Funny that J.C. Penney thinks hiring an open homosexual spokesperson will help their business when most of their customers are traditional families. The majority of J.C. Penney shoppers will be offended and choose to no longer shop there.”
Ouch. Although there are mothers with strong opinions, J.C. Penney doesn’t look like they’ll change their mind telling Yahoo Shine that it “stands behind it’s partnership with Ellen Degeneres.”
