Conservative Media Watchdog Group Angry With Ellen DeGeneres – Again [Video]
Comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is featured in a new Christmas ad for JC Penney, and the ultra conservative media watchdog group One Million Moms is not happy with some of the verb-age. Find out what all the fuss is about after the jump.
Having watched the commercial, do you know what the fuss is all about? It took me a minute, I must admit. One Million Moms is upset about Ellen’s references to “no small feat” and “it’s a big deal”. Their implication is that since she was talking to elves, she shouldn’t have made those clumsy ‘small’ jokes. This is what the group had to say about the “offensive” J.C. Penny ad; “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 vote with their wallets. We have contacted JC Penny’s several times in the past with our concerns, and they will not listen. They have decided to ignore our complaints so we will avoid them at all costs.”
Seriously? I’m aware of the fact that Ellen is sitting at a table with elves, or little people, but I really don’t think her goofy references to size were meant to offend them. In my opinion, they were just bad jokes. What do you think? Did Ellen demoralize little people the world over, or did she just make a couple of bad jokes? Share your thoughts. Take the poll below.
