After remaining silent on the calls from hate group “One Million Moms” for JCPenney to fire Ellen DeGeneres as its spokesperson, the out comic has hit back at her detractors with a hilarious segment.
First, Ellen delivers the good news about California’s Prop 8 being declared unconstitutional. Then she moved onto the One Million Moms debacle.
“This organization thinks that I shouldn’t be the spokesperson because I’m gay. So, for those of you just tuning in for the first time, it’s true, I’m gay. I hope you were sitting down. I hate to break it to you this way. So they wanted to get me fired, but I am proud and happy to say that JCPenney stuck by their decision to make me their spokesperson. It’s great news for me, because I need some new crew socks.”
Oh, Ellen. Never change.
