The Muppets Quit Chick-Fil-A

The Muppets used to supply Chick-Fil-A with toys for their kiddie meals. But since the company has come out against marriage equality, they don’t want to insult or embarrass the company with their pro-gay rights money.

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.

Score one for the fuzzballs.
