Don't rain on her parade! While still basking in the glow of a federal appeals ruling to overturn California's ban on same-sex marriage on Tuesday, Ellen DeGeneres sounded off on her "haters" during a show taping that will air tomorrow.
"You all may know that I've recently teamed up with JC Penney," Ellen explained. "I'm happy about it. JC Penney is happy about it. But there's a group called One Million Moms that isn't happy about it."
The organization recently issued a statement, expressing their wishes that Ellen be fired as a JC Penney spokesperson because of her sexual preference.
"By jumping on the pro-gay bandwagon, JC Penney is attempting to gain a new target market and in the process will lose customers with traditional values that have been faithful to them over all these years," One Million Moms wrote. "The majority of JC Penney shoppers will be offended and choose to no longer shop there."
Ellen addressed the statement, saying, "I want to be clear. Here are the values I stand for. I stand for honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you'd want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values. That's what I stand for ... I also believe in dance."
