A Flashmob for Ellen

Supporters dance out their support for DeGeneres during a recent flash mob at JCPenney

We’d like to see the Million Moms top this. After the conservative group waged war against JCPenney for signing Ellen DeGeneres as its new spokesperson, support from the talk show host’s fans has been pouring in (including from the retailer itself which stood behind its decision to hire the out comedian).

One of the most interesting shows of affection came from a recent flash mob performance outside of a JCPenney store in Los Angeles, home to DeGeneres’ own highly rated talk show.

GROOV3 – a group of non-professionals who dance to boost “confidence, weight loss and a sense of well-being,” according to the website – created a creative response to critics with a “show the love and stop the hate” performance. We just want to know when they’ll be appearing on the Ellen show.

  • this stuff (hatered) has been going on wat too long. we -all of us need to learn to be respectful,kind, & thoughtful of other’s. just as we were taught when we were children.we are” ALL HUMAN’S” & should treat each other as “EQUAL’S”.I have had too much of this to deal with personally & i know im fed up with the way society has gotten . just learn how to love another person for who they are.

    It really upsets me when people judge other people without even knowing them. I was raised in a house with a father who had strong views of people who where different in his view. Rather it be race, lifestyle,
    creed or whatever. I chose from a very young age I did not believe in his views and many times have let him know so. I have raised my children to never judge anyone as a friend or not before you know who they are inside as a person. Good people come in all packages and you never know which one your best friend is in, or who your friends are going to end up being if you decide you don’t like them because of someone else views. I have an array of friends as well as my kids and I’m sure that they well past these views to respect all people and get to know someone first before you like them or not to my granddaughters. You go Ellen, you always walk the walk and talk the talk, you are kind to others. I enjoy your show. Thanks for being you, Connie

    WE LOVE ELLEN….and THANK YOU to JC Penny for NOT backing down! Ellen’s sexual preference does NOT have ANYTHING to do with the commercials! Just a bunch of closed minded people who do NOT understand that EVERY HUMAN BEING HAS THE RIGHT TO LIVE THEIR LIFE IN PEACE!!!
