The Muppets Dump Chick-Fil-A


The Muppets have dumped their partnership with Chick-Fil-A after having sold the company Creature Shop toys for the chain's kid's meals. The Jim Henson Company has posted a statement to their Facebook page:
The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors. Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD.

1. Durn Liberal Muppets...

Next thing you know they will do a movie where Animal and Gonzo get married.

I think I would go to the movie. I bet it would be picketed. That would be sweet.

And it all got worse when Bert joined the police:

I had that song on my mind for a whole 1/2 year thank you very much a couple of years back.. The first I was "hearing" when I woke was nama-namana and the last I was "hearing" when I got to sleep was "nama-namama".... Oh joy...

But the Muppet's was/ and is still great.. I have a few movies about them - and it is always found to just look at the movies - and remember how it was then, when the world was little less complicated and more Innocent than today.... Childhood..

Not to say, how funny it can be, when you are over-tired and is looking at the Muppet's at youtube... It is outright hilarious to look at at 5 in the morning

14. Well, it was always obvious Bert and Ernie were gay...




Series-ly, some nutjobs were saying they were gay and Sesame Street was trying to indoctrinate children into the "homosexual lifestyle."

28. obama's campaign should force mittens 'front and center' on this issue

People should be made aware of how bigoted the mormons were/are on this issue (e.g., Prop. 8)! A very clear line of distinction between the candidates on this issue should be made early and often!!!!!!!!

30. i am surprised this didn't happen sooner considering that the Muppets are about

10% chickens and gay Muppets, (I'm looking at you Scooter and Lew Zealand)

I think Gonzo is 10% chicken.
