The Jim Henson Company has broken all business ties with restaurant chain Chik-Fil-A over the restaurant chain’s president’s statement that the company is against gay marriage. The Henson Company mainly did so to show support for their own, Bert & Ernie.
Particularly relieved about the break of ties is one member of the Henson family who has always had reservations about being associated with a fast food chicken restaurant – Big Bird.
Chik-Fil-A has not made any public statement saying whether they approve of a marriage between a frog and a pig.
A spokesman for the Henson Company said that when it comes to politics, they won’t let themselves be anyone’s puppet.
Chik-Fil-A isn’t worried about their stance hurting sales of their chicken breast filets, because, they say, gays aren’t interested in breasts anyway.
