Apparently Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog don’t take criticism well. The pair was asked at a press conference for “The Muppets” premiere in London about concerns over the movie’s attack on the oil industry and business.
The Muppets were asked how they felt when Eric Bolling from Fox News discussed their latest movie and said the Muppets were “pushing a dangerous liberal agenda and trying to brainwash children.”
Miss Piggy declared, “It’s almost as laughable as accusing Fox News of being news,” to which the audience, presumably press people since it was a press conference, burst into applause. Kermit replied, “Boy, that’s gonna be all over the internet. You are in such deep water.”
Miss Piggy followed up by saying, “If they take what I say seriously they have a real big problem.” It’s not just what Miss Piggy says, but the fact that millions of children watch the Muppet movies and interviews such as this. Instead of facing the facts, the Muppets themselves are sent out to do the dirty work of the left and attack Fox News.
Hollywood continues to portray corporation and successful businessmen as evil. While it is a light-hearted comedy for kids, liberal Hollywood can’t resist an evil oil company to continue their attacked on business.
