Last week, the owners of Chick-fil-A publicly stated that they oppose gay marriage, which is the dumbest move you can possibly make; everyone knows that drag queens make up something like 25 percent of their clientele. Bitches love fried chicken.
Anyway, seeing as how a major company associated with them went on the record to say that they discriminate, The Muppets (well, more specifically, The Jim Henson Company) has decided to sever ties with the fast-food chain, presumably by having Miss Piggy karate chop the metaphorical link while going “HEEEEEEEEYA!”
The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors. Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD. (http://www.glaad.org/) [from Facebook]
I’ve actually been scrolling down the comments thread on the posting, and it confuses me to see some of these people who are siding with Chick-fil-A over the Muppets. Christ, how skewed do your priorities have to be that you would forgo heartwarming Muppets in favour of heart-clogging chicken? That’s fucking cold.
