Sesame Street Wants Obama's Big Bird Ad Taken Down

| Filed under: TV NewsPolitikBarack Obama

The people at Sesame Street probably aren't big fans of Mitt Romney since he wants to eliminate federal funding for public broadcasting, but they aren't taking sides in the election either.

In response to Barack Obama's HIGHlarious campaign ad (above) that pokes fun at his opponents Big Bird comments, the organization behind the children's show has asked that the ad be taken down.

Sesame Workshop said in a statement:

"Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down."

There goes that angle!

Guess Team Obama should have cleared their idea with Big Bird before featuring him in an attack ad…

Wonder what other Romney gaffe they'll attack next? There are plenty to choose from. LOLz!

    Well Obamas people will see about it. In other words in an articke on the web, Obama and his truibe will decide if they will take it down or not. They don't happen to give a rats ass if these people like it or not. What are they going to do?? Sue the Prez? I would love to see them do it lolRe: Lady Who?
