Conservatives Are Fuming After Billy Porter Wears His Iconic Tuxedo Gown For 'Sesame Street' Appearance

Conservative—who accuse others fighting bigotry and oppression of being "snowflakes"—found something new to be offended about.

So what is it this time?


After Billy Porter dropped by Sesame Street in his iconic Christian Siriano tuxedo gown from last year's Academy Awards...



...Sesame Street tweeted about it, saying:

"an iconic day with an iconic person."

The post contained pictures of Porter posing with Elmo, one of the show's Penguins, as well as sitting in front of the familiar 123 Sesame Street brownstone in his full gown.

That gown was iconic 365 days ago and now it's back with a vengeance.

Unfortunately, several Twitter conservatives were unable to handle the moment, making hateful and/or rude comments about Sesame Street and Porter.





Porter likely saw this upset coming, as he'd already shut down Donald Trump Jr.'s use of his Grammy's outfit (which was also an iconic moment) on the same day he was tagged in Sesame Street's tweet.


Those who were not in the least intimidated by Porter's lewks complimented his gumption and Sesame Street's inclusivity.





Porter says he, himself, was "tickled" to be in the company of such a legend as THE Elmo.

Don't let the haters get you down, Billy.

Porter's appearance currently has no airdate set, but once it does, we are sure we will be fans.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
