Ellen DeGeneres JCPenney Christmas ad YouTube video upsets group 'One Million Moms'

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.
