Last month on the FOX Business Network, Follow the Money host Eric Bolling and guest Dan Gainor blasted the Muppets for using “class warfare” to “brainwash our kids” with an “anti-corporate message.” “They hate the oil industry,” said Gainor, referring both to the Muppets and Hollywood as a whole.

A few days ago, while on a UK press tour for The Muppets, Kermit and Miss Piggy responded to the allegations. “If we had a problem with oil companies,” said Kermit, “why would we have spent the entire film driving around in a gas-guzzling Rolls Royce?”

Added Miss Piggy, “It’s almost as laughable as accusing FOX News of being news.”
