HURRAY for J.C. Penney standing strong to keep Ellen DeGeneres......Shes an awesome person and t.v. talk show host....I love watching her show. Does it really matter what her sexual orientation is ????What does that have to do with her being a spokesperson for JC Penney,Covergirl or any other store, magazine, People need to worry about more important things...I LOVE YOUR SHOW ELLEN AND EVERYTHING YOU DO ON THEIR FOR THE AUDIENCES....KEEP IT UP

Big disappointment. It would be different if she just shopped there. Then no big deal. I could still shop there. But to hire her to "represent" the entire JC Penney store? Very bad idea. They have shut out the traditional, conservative buyers. They should have figured something else out and stayed neutral. Then both groups could shop there without angst.

I no longer shop at JCP since they hired that low-life lezbo to be their spokesdyke, they will soon join the retailer boneyard just like Montgomery Wards and Circuit City and it serves them right for promoting perverse deviancy!!!

It's so sad that people are so small minded that they won't shop at a place that has a lesbian spokes woman. Do you know how many gay people are out there? They are gay people handling your groceriee, your mail, you might even have a gay doctor or nurse if you are in the hospital. You can believe what ever you want when it somes to homosexuality and religion it doesn't mean you have to be so intolerant.

Oh and it's not the lesbian spoke's woman bringing the store down, it's the person who decided to not have sales and coupons.
