One Million Moms ‘Moving On’ from Ellen DeGeneres Protest

Post submitted by Eric Cameron, HRC Digital Media Specialist

Days after decrying the mere appearance of Ellen DeGeneres in a new holiday ad for JC Penney’s, One Million Moms director Monica Cole says her group is “moving on.”

"We're not taking action, we're moving on. We've already contacted the company," Cole told the Christian Post, claiming the action was not "an attack on any one person or company," but was targeted at "the agenda behind it."

HRC has applauded JC Penney’s in the past for taking steps to reflect the diversity of American families in their advertising, though running an ad that features a comedian who happens to be gay is a far cry from promoting an activist agenda.
