The Muppets respond to FOX News' accusations that they are turning kids away from capitalism

1 min read

The latest Muppets movie is considered by most to be pretty great all-around family fun. Well, except if you’re FOX News, that is. The ultra-conservative American news network recently did an in-depth expose on how the film was being used as a vehicle to influence the highly susceptible youth of America to adopt anti-capitalistic views. Yes, a “so called” respectable news agency accused a puppet frog and pig of being communists. I dare you to make it through this video without face-palming.

In response, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy has this to say yesterday during a press conference:

As funny as the Muppets’ response is, I cannot believe that this news story actually exists. Fox News has never exactly been a paragon of journalistic excellence, but this is just plain ridiculous now. What’s next? Occupy Sesame Street?!
