Muppet Maven Yanks Toys from Chick-Fil-A Over Gay Marriage Stance

The Muppet brand continues to shed its apolitical cloth, fur and ping pong ball eyes.

Late last year, the rebooted "Muppets" movie cast an eeee-vil oil baron as its villain, and Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy let loose with an anti-Fox News gag during a press conference.

Now, Jim Henson Studios is yanking its toys from Chick-Fil-A restaurants because of the chain owner's opposition to gay marriage.

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.
