One Million Moms, an offshoot of the conservative anti-gay rights American Family Association, wasn't too happy when JC Penney made Ellen DeGeneres its spokeswoman last February. Now, they're railing against JC Penney's new Christmas commercial, in which Ellen the Elf makes a series of "small" jokes at her fellow elves.
The group had this message for JC Penney and Ellen, via Boston.com:
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. JCP has made their choice to offend a huge majority of their customers again. Christians must now vote with their wallets.
