Good Morning America just called Kermit the Frog a 'Tea Lizard'

GMA called the beloved character of Kermit the Frog a “tea lizard." Yes, that's right. Kermit the Frog - clearly a frog - is now a !tea lizard", according to America.
Anyone who has spent more than 10 minutes on the internet will probably know that the Kermit drinking meme comes from this Lipton Tea advert and has become associated with the sarcastic clapback “but that’s none of my business,” usually used after one makes a good point in an argument. The ridicule of #TeaLizard doesn’t stop there. Even Miss Piggy isn’t safe.
Naturally, there’s already a Tea Lizard parody account and several think pieces on what #TeaLizard meme means for society. Some people think that #TeaLizard was a deliberate mistake, done to create a Twitter storm. Others are inexplicably linking the meme to whitewashing of black comedy. Apparently tea-sipping Kermit is cultural appropriation. Kim Kardashian’s oil-slicked naked body might not have broken the internet, despite her best efforts, but #TeaLizard might just do it. Kermit has thanked the public for their outpouring of support in an official statement aired on GMA today.
So that’s that, people. Hopefully now we can all go back to posting cats who want to stay in the EU and arguing over pictures of brick walls.
