Muppets dump Chick-fil-A

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

This one surprised me.

I'd heard about it yesterday but honestly didn't believe it. Then I went and read up, and what do you know.  You'll recall that Chick-fil-a came out and admitted that it's seriously anti-gay, going so far as to quote the old "Adam & Steve" line.  Well, the Muppets told Chick-fil-A to take a hike.

Via JoeMyGod:
The Muppets have dumped their partnership with Chick-Fil-A after having sold the company Creature Shop toys for the chain's kid's meals. The Jim Henson Company has posted a statement to their Facebook page:
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.
Feel free to visit the Muppets Facebook page and give 'em an atta-puppet.
