On her show, Ellen says “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. Which is great news for me because I also need some new crew socks.” She also said “I usually don’t talk about stuff like this on my show, but I really want to thank everyone who is supporting me. Here are the values I stand for: I stand for honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you’d want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values. That’s what I stand for.”
Ellen’s taking on the AFA and OMM is great to see. Several websites, including LezGetReal, noted OMM’s attempts to get JC Penney to cut ties with Ellen Degeneres. In the end, JC Penney stood by their choice of having Degeneres as their spokeswoman.
