TV CRITIC GRIMLOCK: Me Grimlock saw Ellen DeGeneres bravely stand up to conservative
group One Million Moms after they lashed out against Ellen and her JCPenney ad campaign
because of her sexual orientation.
ELLEN DeGENERES: This organization doesn't think that I should be the spokesperson because
I'm gay.
So, uh, for those of you who are just tuning in for the first time, it's true.
I'm gay.
I hope you are sitting down.
[Studio audience laughter and cheers]
If they have a problem with, uh, spokespeople, I-I... what about the Pillsbury Doughboy?
I mean, he runs around without any pants on and...
... basically begging for people to poke his belly...
I would like to read just a few comments from the Million Moms Facebook page.
This is on their page.
And not that there's anyone counting, but, um, for a group that calls themselves The
Million Moms, they only have 40,000 members on their page.
So they're rounding to the nearest million, and I get that.
GRIMLOCK: Me Grimlock impressed by Ellen's sharp-witted reply.
Me Grimlock also impressed by JCPenney not buckling down to pressure from One Million
Moms to fire Ellen, even though me Grimlock got bit of beef with JCPenney.
Me Grimlock tried to find pants at JCPenney that would fit on me Grimlock, but JCPenney
did not carry pants that could fit.
Come on, JCPenney, hook Dinobot up!
Why you frontin', JCPenney?
So that why me Grimlock going commando.
Me Grimlock not only TV critic who go pantsless.
There that time from 1987 to 1988 when Tom Shales went commando...
... to delight of everyone at Washington Post newspaper office.
[Sounds of people screaming]
