Ellen DeGeneres Addresses Anti-Gay ‘One Million Moms’ Group

Ellen DeGeneres has publicly responded to the anti-gay group “One Million Moms,” which recently called for JCPenney to remove the openly gay talk show host as its spokesperson.

On Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the comedian began by deeming California’s recent decision on Proposition 8 “a step in the right direction,” but it led to her next topic: the group who wanted her fired because she’s gay. Publicly addressing the controversy for the first time, she said, “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 explained that JCPenney has stood by the partnership despite the group’s attempts to have her replaced with someone who better represents “traditional values.” DeGeneres took the discussion seriously, of course, but not without a few jokes along the way.
