The new commercials come just weeks after the anti-gay group "One Million Moms," a project of the American Family Association – an organization the Southern Poverty Law Center designates as a hate group – demanded that J.C. Penney fire Ellen as the company's new spokesperson, simply because she's gay. Over 46,000 supporters joined GLAAD to #StandUpForEllen and ignite a national dialogue about employment discrimination. J.C. Penney later announced it "stands behind its partnership with Ellen."

If you haven't already, take action now and thank J.C. Penney for standing up for Ellen. Get more background on Ellen and J.C. Penney at www.glaad.org/standupforellen.
