He’s lived with a man for 31 years and wears turtlenecks and saddle shoes, and rumors of his homosexuality have swirled for years.
But no one’s ever heard directly from Sesame Street’s Bert on his sexuality, until now… sort of.
On June 11, the famous puppet tweeted about the recent “A-Team” remake by comparing himself to A-Team star Mr-T, saying, “Ever notice how similar my hair is to Mr. T’s? The only difference is mine is a little more ‘mo,’ a little less ‘hawk.’”
To some the comment was just a cute quip about hairstyles, but to others, “mo” was short for “homo” and this was Bert’s way of coming out at the perfect time.
On the other hand, he may just be plain evil: http://www.bertisevil.tv/
