Ernie Loves Bert: As friends for now

Ernie Loves Bert: As friends for now
William D. SIEMER II 08.17.11

It wouldn't concern me if Bert and Ernie were to get married, but I don't necessarily believe it needed to be suggested. We aren't quite to a place where a conservative kid's television show (who cut Katy Perry for being to provocative) are going to make their two iconic best friends decidedly homosexual. The comments created a media uproar on both sides of the issue, and initiated the show's producers to make a response that would only put a hinder on gay relations.

I suggest Bert and Ernie continue to do whatever it is they do when the camera turns off, and ignore the media's push for them to come out on national television. It isn't right when a human's privacy is violated, and the same goes for Muppets.

In response to:
Sesame Street: Bert and Ernie are best friends, not gays and will never be married
