As first seen on Joe Jervis’s Joe.My.God blog, the below clip is from Ellen DeGeneres’s addresing the OneMillionMoms controversy about her as a spokesperson for JC Penny. At about 1:16 in Ellen says “My Haters are My Motivators.” What a great quote. Something to remember for all of us and especially for LGBT youth. Don’t let the haters tear you down, let them be your motivators to be more successful; to hold you head up high; and to make change in the world to stamp out H8.
Also noteworthy in the clip is where Ellen jokes about the Moms rounding up their figure and reading the comments from the OneMillionMoms on their Facebook page in support of Ellen.
