Bert is Neither Gay nor Bin Laden’s buddy
In a brewing controversy that has some conservatives worrying that Bert might be a stealth gay puppet, Sesame Street has had to make an announcement that Bert is not Gay:
NEW YORK, Oct. 24 (UPI) — Sesame Street’s Muppet Bert is not a homosexual, despite his use of the word “mo” when referring to a hairstyle, show officials said.
“Mo” is slang for homosexual, but it was not a sly reference about gays, a program official said in The Los Angeles Times.
On June 11, Bert tweeted about the premiere of the recent “A-Team” remake starring the Mohawk-wearing actor “Mr. T.” In the tweet, Bert said, “ever notice how similar my hair is to Mr. T’s? The only difference is mine is more ‘mo’ and a little less ‘hawk.’”
You should also be happy to know that Bert is not Bin Laden’s buddy either.
