Comedian and talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres's newest Christmas commercial has apparently upset 'One Million Moms.'
In the JCPenny commercial, DeGeneres jokingly insults the tiny little Santa helpers with short jokes:
"I know this is no small feat," she says. "Well, it's a big deal," she adds.
But that's not what's insulting mom's.
A group, called 'One Million Moms,' is upset that DeGeneres, a lesbian, is being used to advertise JCPenny.
The group posted this on its website Tuesday:
"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."
According to the Today Show, the group, which is a project of the American Family Association, asked shoppers to call JCPenney and ask that the company replace DeGeneres as a spokeswoman.
