There's absolutely nothing exploitative about FOX offering supportive congratulations.

As for Ellen's coming out being a big deal, it's not the bombshell it would've been even 10 years ago, but it's still significant because there's still a long way to go before a person's sexuality and/or gender identity truly don't matter.

It sounds as if it's not a big deal to you because it doesn' redefine your opinion of her, but society as a whole is not yet to that point, and until it is, coming out either in public or in private is going to continue to be a fairly significant thing, particularly for celebrities and public figures.
