#ThrowBackThursday: The End of Kermit & Miss Piggy

For the past 40 years we have witnessed the relationship between Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. Spanning from a friendship since childhood to a budding relationship that led to marriage, the two have always shared the stage as a couple whom would surpass the trials and tribulations of time.

However, all good things must come to an end as on August 4th the two announced that as they would continue to work together, they would part ways romantically.
"It's a day-by-day, moment-by-moment process," Kermit said at the event. "Piggy and I have gone our separate ways romantically." - Kermit The Frog
"I have no problem working with my ex, OK? It's fine. You know what? Dating moi is like flying close to the sun. It was inevitable that Kermit would drop down to the ground while I stayed in the heavens." - Miss Piggy 
The two even went as far to release an official statement to the press in regards to the termination of their relationship:

Celebrities even seemed to chip in on the sadness they felt hearing of the two's breakup, but the real backlash began this week as it seemed a new woman had become the object of Kermit's affection.


We were introduced to Denise, and it appears as if her and Miss Piggy are acquaintances to say the least which makes the situation just a little messier. Photos exposing the two have lead to quite the media backlash as fans and muppet lovers everywhere aren't happy with how quickly Kermit has seemingly been able to move on, causing Kermit to once again release another statement:

And in true fashion, Twitter and Instagram didn't disappoint with their opinions either:


 One thing is for sure, whether we agree or disagree with Kermit's lifestyle choices, ABC has executed a wonderful media stunt to promote the upcoming Muppets series set to air on September 22nd, as Kermit and Denise have already been featured in the shows promos.
