In the wake of anti-gay group One Million Moms denouncing JCPenney for tapping Ellen DeGeneres as their spokesperson, LGBT advocacy group GLAAD has started a campaign to defend DeGeneres and support JCPenney’s contract with her. Meanwhile, JCPenney hasn’t said anything, probably because this shouldn’t even be an issue to begin with. Related: Conservative Group Angry Over JCPenney’s Partnership With Ellen DeGeneres
