Henson Only Covering Their Chicken Butts
Dear Friends, please stop posting how proud you are of the Henson Company for "doing the right thing" about this Chick-fil-A business, and posting pictures with Kermit. Disney owns Kermit, and had nothing to do with this mess. Remember, it's the Henson Company that inked the deal with Chick-fil-A, an inexcusably right-wing, actively anti-gay company, in the first place! This is a perfect example of corporate spin - making it seem like Henson did something to be proud of. No! They are covering their asses after having made a terrible, embarrassing business decision. Giving their licensing fee to GLAAD is a good solution, but it all started with a stupid, ill-considered deal with a dubious business partner to begin with! - Rick Lyons on Facebook. UPDATE: A More detailed description of the whole Chick-fil-A anti-gay mess in the New York Times on Thursday.
