During a recent UK press conference to promote their film 'The Muppets' in London, Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog took questions about commentators, on the Fox News Channel, who have claimed the movie is an attempt to brainwash children against capitalism, as the villain of the flick represents an oil company (video below).
Kermit the Frog explained: “It’s a funny thing, they were concerned about us having some prejudice against oil companies, and I can tell you that’s categorically not true. And besides, if we have problems with oil companies, why would we have spent the entire film driving around a gas-guzzling Rolls-Royce?”
Miss Piggy added: “It’s almost as laughable as accusing Fox News of being, uh, you know, being news.”
“That’s going to be all over the Internet,” Kermit the Frog predicted.
