America’s most-beloved bird is under attack!
Of all the moments from last night’s presidential debate, one comment from Republican candidate Mitt Romney has the Internet in an uproar.
Romney explained that part of his budget plan would include making cuts to “non-essential” items in the budget, including PBS (which happens to be the employer of debate moderator Jim Lehrer). Romney said: ”I’m sorry Jim. I’m gonna stop the subsidy to PBS. I’m gonna stop other things. I like PBS, I like Big Bird, I actually like you too.” But yet he’s going to fire Big Bird and cut funding to the network…
In response to Romney’s comments, a variety of memes and images quickly appeared in support of Big Bird and his PBS friends. Check them out below and make sure to sign Care2′s petition in support of funding for PBS and Big Bird!
