    Looks like the Muppets are in trouble. They have been purple supremacist for years though.
    And Mrs Piggy is so angry. She should be locked up for frogle abuse.

    "18 episodes of the show were deemed potentially offensive enough that Disney added content disclaimers in front of them. The text of the disclaimers, which cannot be skipped past and include little 12-second timers so you know that you have to sit through them, explain that the episodes feature “negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures,” and while “these stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now,” Disney has decided to leave them in order to “acknowledge the [offensive content’s] harmful impact, learn from it, and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.”"

    How they portray musicians offends me. Drummers are not mindless animals! Some even have jobs!
