The ladies at One Million Moms are at it again. The group, which has nowhere near one million members (their Facebook page has 50 thousand followers), was launched by the conservative Christian group American Family Association and made their first public splash when they urged supporters to boycott JC Penny in response to JC Penny’s hiring of Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson.
Apparently OMMs disgust with JC Penny is alive and well. The new target for their venom is JC Penny’s new commercial in which Ellen plays an Elf. Yes, the holiest of Christian icons…the elf.
From One Million Moms:
“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,” writes OMM. “JCP has made their choice to offend a huge majority of their customers again. Christians must now vote with their wallets. We have contacted JC Penney's several times in the past with our concerns, and they will not listen. They have decided to ignore our complaints so we will avoid them at all costs.”
For what it’s worth, the Facebook group "1 Million people who support Ellen for JC Penny" has more than 325,000 followers.
Other recent targets of One Million Moms include Skittles (for their commercial in which a girl kisses a walrus), Urban Outfitters (for some questionable language on their website), NBC’s tv show ‘New Normal’, Oreo (for supporting Gay Pride) and DC Comics (for introducing a gay character)
