London, GB—Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy attended last week’s London premiere of The Muppets. During the event, British reporters asked the pair what they thought about the growing tension between Fox News and the popular Hensonites. The cable news giant is also particularly angry at the Muppet, Animal, for urinating on Roger Ailes at the Propaganda for Dummies Symposium in San Diego last month.
When specifically questioned about Fox’s assertion the movie has a liberal agenda, Kermit said, “If we have a problem with oil companies, why would we have spent the entire film driving around a gas-guzzling Rolls Royce?”
Miss Piggy then chimed in, “It’s almost as laughable as accusing Fox News of, you know, being news.”
The Daily Discord later asked if the couple wished to retract their statements. “Certainly not,” said Kermit, “and I can tell you another thing: with Fox News around it aint easy being green.”
Miss Piggy stated she was more concerned about conservative’s recent racist attacks against Muppets in general, and added, “I know the women of Fox News are attractive, but to me it’s all just lipstick on a pig.”
She then asked to have her statement retracted, which we will now do:
Please do not read that last statement from Miss Piggy.
See Fox? That’s how you do a retraction. You should try it.
