Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy hit back at Fox News at a UK press conference following the London Premiere of their new film, in response to Fox's earlier criticism of the film "pushing a dangerous liberal agenda" at kids.
Making the publicity rounds following the London premiere of their new hit movie, Kermit and Miss Piggy defended their fellow fuzzy foam friends from attacks by the right-leaning cable channel. Check out the clip below:
Eric Bolling, host of Follow the Money, alleged last year that The Muppets pushes a "dangerous liberal agenda," as the oil tycoon villain is named Tex Richman. "We are teaching our kids class warfare. Where are we, Communist China?" Bolling asked.
Seriously. Asked by reporters about the accusations, Kermit responded:
"Oh, it's SO dangerous. You know it's a funny thing. They were concerned about us having some prejudice against oil companies. That is categorically not true."
"And besides if we have such a big a problem with the oil companies, why would we have spent the entire film driving around a gas-guzzling Rolls-Royce?"
The lovable amphibian does make a point there.
Miss Piggy chimed in: "It's almost as laughable as accusing Fox News of being, uh ... news." Oh, snap. A cable news network, OWNED by sock puppets.
