Kermit the Frog is against Scottish independence. Pro-independence campaigners do not like this.

The Muppet and Sesame Street star's said that the United Kingdom should "absolutely" stay together, in an intervention that has provoked some on Twitter to offer expletive-laden responses.

Kermit may have riled Scottish nationalists by telling the Big Issue that Miss Piggy had her eye on an independent Scotland's throne, saying: "I understand that Miss Piggy is willing to serve as Queen of Scotland if there is a split. So you may want to guard your castles."

Here are five of the most furious reactions on Twitter to show that the frog wading into the Scottish independence debate has not gone down entirely well.

One user wrote about how "desperate" the Better Together campaign was to have Kermit "telling Scots to vote no".

Meanwhile, another just quipped: "Kermit. Another cold slimy green union supporter."

Others made the predictable "muppet" jokes about the Better Together campaign.

Another launched into a strongly put rant telling the Muppet star: "Fuck you Kermit". For good measure, he also went on about how there are "no foodbanks" in Scotland.

Other people seemed brutally disappointed that Kermit had come out against Scottish independence, with one dejected user tweeting: "Fuck's sake Kermit".

The undoubtedly disillusioned user points out that Kermit thanks everyone in "England" for enjoying the Muppets' films rather than the United Kingdom.
