The Muppets Respond to Fox Business News

Fox Business News host Eric Bolling criticized the new Muppets movie last month during an interview on his program Follow the Money, saying the latest movie to star the celebrity puppets leaned to the left.

“I’ll put it out there: Is liberal Hollywood using class warfare to kind of brainwash our kids?” he asked. His guest Dan Gainor from the Media Research Center answered this question in the affirmative and followed up that ridiculous inquiry with this boneheaded response: “I mean, this is a Muppet movie for goodness sake. The only thing that should be green up on that screen is Kermit the Frog.” More enlightenment from these two here.

Because The Muppets are awesome, they responded to the charges during a presser for the U.K. premiere of the film. If you still have any doubt that Miss Piggy rocks, check out her response to questions about the phone hacking scandal and the Christian Louboutins she wore on Project Runway All Stars a couple of weeks back.
