"LGBT Activists Organize Buycotts For JC Penney In Support Of Ellen"

LGBT activists and Ellen DeGeneres fans are flocking to JC Penney to support the department store after conservative group One Million Moms threatened to boycott the company for partnering with the openly-gay comedian. Gay men clad in pink took to Manhattan’s JC Penney on Saturday in a flash mob of support for the store’s partnership with DeGeneres, and Georgia’s East Side Pride is organizing a similar “buycott.” Others on Facebook have promoted buycotts and shop-in’s, and it seems the issue is not dying down. The American Family Association (which oversees One Million Moms) recommitted to its crusade against DeGeneres today and her supposed effort to “push the homosexual cause on America.”
