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.
