You’d think that last night’s Emmy Awards telecast would be the most superficial news of the day, but Alas! You’d be wrong!
In a recent interview, Mark Saltzman, a former writer for Sesame Street, stated that he wrote the characters Bert and Ernie as if they were a gay couple in a loving relationship. Immediately, social media lit up with the comments. Once the word reached Sesame Workshop, the company released a statement saying that Bert And Ernie are NOT a gay couple; simply best friends.
The statement seems to have met mostly deaf ears. The debate continues.
Our take? Who gives a flying screw? They’re PUPPETS!
