Chick-Fil-A’s Same-Sex Marriage Attacks Draw Ire of Muppets, Jon Stewart

The Jim Henson Company, the force behind the Muppets, recently announced that it’s cutting ties with Chick-fil-A because of the fast-food chain’s stance against same-sex marriage. The company posted this note on its Facebook page: “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. ”

Chick-fil-A did not immediately return our request for comment.

The move prompted Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show” to mock Chick-Fil-A’s anti-gay rights position last night. Oh, and Stewart also takes shots at the The Boy Scouts of America. Caution: the comedy features some raw language.
