(Newser) – Sesame Street is not brought to you by the letter A anymore, at least not as in "Chick-fil-A." The Muppets and the Jim Henson Company have pulled out of a promotional campaign at the popular fast food franchise after Chick-fil-A's president said the company is opposed to gay marriage, reports the Huffington Post. The Muppet crew will donate its Chick-fil-A revenue to GLAAD.

"The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over 50 years, and we have notified Chick-fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors," wrote the Jim Henson Company on its Facebook page.
