Are the Muppets pushing a liberal anti-business agenda? According to Eric Bolling on the Fox Business Network, they are. On a December episode of Follow the Money, the host mused that The Muppets, a movie which features an oil tycoon as the chief antagonist, could fit into a larger Hollywood scheme to brainwash children. But in a recent U.K. press conference to promote the film, Miss Piggy and Kermit fired back.
“If we had a problem with oil companies, why would we have spent the entire film driving around in a gas-guzzling Rolls Royce?” asked Kermit. Miss Piggy chimed in too, though a bit more confrontational, deeming the allegations “almost as laughable as accusing Fox News of being … news.” (Though, to be fair, the channel was Fox Business, not Fox News.)
It is unknown if these remarks were planned, but as Kermit aptly noted, “Boy, that’s going to be all over the Internet!”
