Kermit & Miss Piggy Have Some Choice Words For Fox News

And All Was Right With the World

You may remember The Muppets director James Bobin notoriously spoke the words,”No, the Muppets are not communist,” in response to a flashy Fox News piece saying the film was part of an anti-corporate message from “liberal Hollywood using class-warfare to brainwash our kids.” Well a wonderful video turned up today. Speaking during a UK press conference following the London Premiere of their film, Kermit and Miss Piggy fired back with classic Muppet wit and sarcasm. Game. Set. Match.
