Big Bird

Republican Mitt Romney garnered jeers from Americans after he pledged to cut funding to PBS, stating, "I like PBS, I love Big Bird." Big Bird supporters quickly launched a social media offensive, setting up a spoof Twitter account, @firedbigbird, and circulating a doctored photo depicting Big Bird with a "Will Work for Food" sign.
