The Muppet world and Internet are in mourning after Kermit the Frog and his longtime lover Miss Piggy broke up on Tuesday. After 40 years together, the duo announced via Twitter they were going their separate ways but will still continue to work together on ABC's new show The Muppets (tensions on set?). While there are plenty of crying emoji in response to the news, social media users just as quickly came up with memes and other downright hilarious reactions. Leave it to the Internet to find some humor in such harrowing times.
The sad news . . .
Wait. Kermit and Miss Piggy have split up?! WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO.
