In the wake of some good news for the movement for marriage equality -- Proposition 8 was declared unconstitutional in court on Tuesday -- talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres is facing another wave of discrimination.
DeGeneres, who married wife Portia de Rossi when gay marriage was legal in California, was recently named a spokesperson of retailer J.C. Penney. A group called One Million Moms has protested her appointment.
On her show airing Feb. 8, DeGeneres addressed both Proposition 8 and the One Million Moms in her monologue. Watch the clip above.
Ellen.... Always a CLASS ACT!!!!
Equal civil rights for all, it should be really simple.
For crying out loud, it is NOT news that Ellen is a lesbian. I don't know why people have such a problem with her being a spokesperson. It's funny to me how these mom groups seem to have nothing better to do with their days than cause stupid issues like this. Take care of your kids or get a job -- quit stirring up problems. If you don't like it, don't watch/listen/buy it. Clearly these parent groups have a lot of free time on their hands so instead of doing something productive with their additional time, they have to stir up an issue. Ridiculous!
