Ellen DeGeneres Unfazed by Protest?

One Million Moms may be done with Ellen DeGeneres and J.C. Penney. The group founded by an anti-gay, conservative Christian group is apparently ending its feud with J.C. Penney who used DeGeneres as a  spokesperson.  One Million Moms initially blasted a J.C. Penney Christmas ad featuring DeGeneres. The group had criticized DeGeneres' holiday commercial, in which she makes "big" jokes in front of three tiny elves.  Since JC Penney is marketed as a family store, the group did not approve of the store embracing  non-traditional family lifestyle.  

DeGeneres was apparently not harmed by the criticism.  She got support from both fans and friends.  In fact, Executive Producer of "The Ellen Show," Andy Lassner, vocally gave his support to the comedian. At the time of this writing, no public word from the elf union.
