While addressing the One Million Mom on controversy on Wednesday, Ellen DeGeneres thanked Fox News host Bill O’Reilly for defending her (video below).

On Monday, O’Reilly said the One Million Moms' effort to remove DeGeneres as their spokesperson was “a witch hunt” that was not in “the spirit of America."

DeGeneres said: “There’s somebody else who, who actually defended me that I’d like to mention: Bill O’Reilly from Fox News. I already sent you out a tweet to thank you."

“And you didn’t really make it clear if you were going to shop at JCPenney or not, but if you do, you can use my employee discount any time you want. That’s for you Bill. Thank you so much.”
