JCPenney Stands By Ellen

By: Michael Matson

Early Friday morning, retail giant JCPenney emailed a statement to Yahoo! Shine confirming that the company “stands by its partnership with Ellen,” despite a threatened boycott by One Millions Moms—a project of designated hate group The American Family Association.

The news is wonderful, but should come as little surprise, considering DeGeneres’ talk show draws three million daily viewers and she won the People’s Choice Awards for Favorite Daytime Talk Show Host just last month. And GLAAD’s “Stand Up for Ellen” petition garnered nearly 25,000 signatures of support in just 48 hours.

One Millions Moms, stop trying to make hate happen! It’s not going to happen (apologies to Mean Girls)!
