Muppets Studio is weighing in on why Steve Whitmire was let go last week after 27 years as the puppeteer behind Kermit the Frog. “The role of Kermit the Frog is an iconic one that is beloved by fans and we take our responsibility to protect the integrity of that character very seriously,” a spokesperson said in a statement.. “We raised concerns about Steve’s repeated unacceptable conduct over a period of many years and he consistently failed to address the feedback,” the studio continued. Whitmire has written multiple blog posts offering his side of the story. Last week, he wrote that he was let go and is “devastated to have failed in my duty” to the late Jim Henson.
