Last week, two Muppet fan communities jointly reported a shocking turn of events: After decades of playing some of the franchise's most recognisable characters, including Kermit the Frog, veteran puppeteer Steve Whitmire had been fired. Muppets Studio later confirmed the news, simply telling Gizmodo and other outlets that it "thanks Steve for his tremendous contributions to Kermit the Frog and The Muppets franchise" and wishes him well "in his future endeavours". Fans were left wondering what really happened.
