Viral of the Week: Miss Piggy and Kermit The Frog Attack Fox News!

Hi Boys and Girls!

Some of you may have already been aware but Miss Piggy and Kermit The Frog held a press conference at the May Fair Hotel in London last week in a move that surprised everyone: they publicly hit back at Fox’s accusations that their new film was intended  as an anti-oil, anti-corporate propaganda film, skewed to brainwash helpless children.

Fox Business' Eric Bolling accused "The Muppets" of pushing an "anti-corporate message" and a liberal agenda.

Those “fighting words” by Fox News anchor Eric Bolling led Kermit the Frog last week to release the following statement:

“It’s a funny thing, they were concerned about us having some prejudice against oil companies, and I can tell you, that’s categorically not true.”

In acting like her combative self Miss Piggy fired back that those charges were ”almost as laughable as accusing Fox News of being news” to which Kermit the Frog concluded: ”Boy that’s going to be all over the internet.”

See the video for yourself here:

It’s not just the Muppets that have had to fight off attacks by Fox News, film director James Bobin told the Hollywood Reporter in December:

“Cable news is 24 hours long so you have to fill it up with something. No, the Muppets are not communist. ”

James Bobin about Fox: “Cable news is 24 hours long so you have to fill it up with something. No, the Muppets are not communist. ”

James Bobin also hit back at Fox last month

For anybody who’s seen The Muppets, accusing them of being anti-capitalist communists is simply ridiculous.

Kermit the Frog as a Communist? Really?

In any case judge for yourself ladies and gentlemen. In the meantime you can check The Muppets as my Movie of the Week here. Personally I just LOVE everything to do with the Muppets!!!! 🙂
