Big Bird's Vaccination Announcement Sparks Backlash From Conservatives, GOP

Big Bird's vaccination announcement has ruffled some feathers.

On Saturday, the famous Sesame Street character revealed on Twitter that he's vaccinated.

"I got the COVID-19 vaccine today! My wing is feeling a little sore, but it'll give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and others healthy."

The announcement sparked a backlash from some Republicans, including Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who accused the 8-foot tall Muppet of tweeting "government propaganda."

While Big Bird has been on Sesame Street for decades, his character is meant to be 6-years-old. So, he just became eligible for the vaccine.

Others online praised Big Bird's vaccination saying he's been "setting an example for a long time."
