It ain’t easy being green, especially when you’ve caught the eye of Fox Business. After being accused in December by the network of being anti-oil, the Muppets held a press conference last week to address those claims.

KERMIT: “It’s a funny thing- they were concerned about us having some prejudice against oil companies and that I can tell you is categorically not true. And besides if we had a problem with oil companies why would we drive in around the whole film in a gas-guzzling Rolls Royce?”

And Time Magazine reports “Miss Piggy chimed in too, though a bit more confrontational, deeming the allegations ‘almost as laughable as accusing Fox News of being … news.’”

In the movie, the Muppets are up against an oil giant. All the drama started back in December, when FOX Business gave its take ...


“Let’s point this out, the oil rich giant man is called ‘Tex Richman.’”
 

“Yeah, it’s amazing how far the Left will go to just to stoop to you know, you’ll manipulate your kids to convince them, give the anti corporate message..."

So why all the fuss now? MSNBC reports the Muppets Movie is set to be released in the UK next month, hence the promotional conference.

And as the Atlantic Wire puts it -- the Muppets, are quote, “never ones to forget a slight.”
