The Muppets Break Contract with Chick-Fil-A, Ban Future Partnerships and Donate to GLAAD!
The Jim Henson Company, parent company of more Muppets than you can shake a stick at, were just days away from rolling out a massive partnership with Chick-fil-A that would have sent millions of children home with Creature Shop toys in their kids meals over the next two months.
Yes, yes, YES! Borrowing a page straight out of the Lady Gaga Target Contract Handbook, The Muppets have severed their contract with their homophobic chicken overlords, banned all future partnerships with Chick-Fil-A and donated the riches from the partnership straight to GLAAD.
Bravo, Jim Henson Company! And thank you! Between this and the mayor of Boston banning the homophobic fast food chain from the entire city, they playbook for dealing with corporate homophobia is being written and executed in crystal clear terms.
How happy are you to hear that Gonzo won’t be chowing down on Camila the chicken anytime in the future?
