Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday offered an alternative gay ornament in response to Hallmark's controversial ornament.

Hallmark found itself embroiled in controversy after it altered the lyrics to Deck the Halls on a miniaturized version of a holiday sweater it began selling earlier this month. The ornament replaces the word “gay” with “fun” in the phrase “Don we now our gay apparel!”

The change attracted controversy on social media, with some people, including CNN anchor Carol Costello, stating that the decision was homophobic. After initially defending itself, Hallmark issued an apology.

“It's ridiculous, because everyone knows in the old song 'gay' means 'fun,'” DeGeneres told her daytime talk show audience. “And apparently people didn't like that they changed the word, so I decided, 'Well, I'll change words too, if they can do that.'”

DeGeneres' ornament shows two men in a sleigh under the caption “Oh How Gay it is to Ride in a One Horse Open Sleigh.”

“Which, of course, means fun,” DeGeneres said. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
