Left-Wing Muppets are Box Office Toast

The box office chickens have really come home to roost for Disney’s The Muppets. The divisive political partisanship that stunk up their re-launch a couple of years ago, has caught up to them in a fierce way with “Muppets Most Wanted.”  After 20 days in release, the sequel has grossed only $41 million. The budget was $50 million, not including a probable $25 to $40 million promotion budget.

One big mistake Disney made with the sequel was in the casting of Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais — two actors that carry an enormous amount of divisive political baggage.
