They say celebrity deaths and breakups come in threes and, unfortunately for the romantically-inclined members of the Twittersphere, there is a new trio of breakups to shatter our beliefs in true love. First it was Gavin and Gwen, then it was Zayn and Perrie, and now the real kicker — Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy have broken up. The horrified response to the news is understanding; after four decades of marriage, Miss Piggy and Kermit's breakup has shocked Twitter and the greater public in general. How will we ever believe in love after this blow?
The relentless stream of Twitter commentary that has commenced in wake of the news has been fiercely passionate. Once you get over the absurdity of the fact that the majority of the public willingly suspends their disbelief and acts like this is a real relationship and not two fictional puppet characters, the heartbreak really starts to set it. In a way, Kermit and Miss Piggy's relationship has been just as real to us as Bennifer's or Zayn and Perrie's relationships and thus the pain we feel in our hearts is just as ferocious.
In times of crisis, Twitter never fails to amuse and such a monumental breakup is bound to elicit some Twitter gold. So without further ado, I give you some of the best (and strangest) Twitter responses to the Muppet breakup to soothe your aching heart.
