Steve Whitmire thought he was giving good creative notes… but that's none of his business anymore.

The longtime voice of Kermit the Frog opened up about being fired by Disney in an appearance on Today, responding to the claims that he had been "difficult" and "demanding" during his time on The Muppets.

The puppeteer, who provided the voice of Kermit for the past 27 years, was completely blindsided when he learned the company was terminating his contract over "unacceptable business conduct," explaining:

"I was stunned. It seemed like it was five minutes of silence. I'm sure it wasn't that long. I just immediately tried to get answers. I had no advance warning on that."

The studio begs to differ. In a statement on Monday, The Muppets Studio claimed executives had "raised concerns" about Steve's behavior "over a period of many years and he consistently failed to address the feedback."

But the 58-year-old, who began working with The Muppets in the late ‘70s, still claims he was caught off guard, continuing:

It ain't easy being an outspoken voice actor!

Last week, it was announced that Steve Whitmire was being replaced by Matt Vogel as the voice of Kermit the Frog.

And like all showbiz shakeups, the recasting didn't come without some drama!

After Whitmire revealed the Muppets Studio had fired him back in October, the studio clapped back saying their "decision to part ways" was due to Whitmire's "unacceptable business conduct."

Kermit The Frog Is Dating A Younger & Thinner Muppet Pig — Have Hollywood Standards Officially Gone Too Far?!

Filed under: TV NewsLove LineSad SadThe MuppetsBreakups

Well, Kermit certainly has a type…

We were shocked last month when we heard that Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy had broken up after more than four decades together!

And although the two were said to have split amicably enough to still work on the upcoming docu-series The Muppets, we don't think things are going to be as easy as previously thought.

[ Video: The First Trailer For The Muppets Is An Office Parody! ]

That's because Kermit is reportedly dating ABC's Head of Marketing Denise… a fellow pig who just so happens to be younger and slimmer than Kermie's old boo.

Not cool, Kermit.

With that said, Miss Piggy seems to be enjoying her time as a single woman, because we hear she's been flirting it up with Up Late with Miss Piggy guest star Liam Hemsworth lately!

Ch-ch-check out the photographic evidence (below)!!!

You done did Ri Ri proud!

Rihanna's newest song B*tch Better have My Money may be the sleeper hit of the Summer, but to one comedy queen, it's everything she needs — aside from Kermit, of course.

In a move we weren't expecting, but totally welcome, the Internet decided that Miss Piggy covering BBHMM was a thing that needed to happen, and we 100 percent approve!

While fan-made videos of people mouthing words to songs usually don't quite sync up, this one does, and it looks as if Miss Piggy was made to channel Rih's bad girl vocals.

Frog stole my look!

Kermit the Frog appeared on The View Tuesday to talk about his viral doppleganger.

Apparently, scientists over at the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center have discovered a species of frog with more than a passing resemblance to The Muppet. It's called Diane's Bare-hearted Glassfrog or Hyalinobatrachium dianae.
