In case you've been living off the grid for the past few weeks, one of the debates taking over social media is whether or not Bert and Ernie are in fact a gay couple. The long-rumored relationship of everyone's favorite puppets has recently been discussed by the show's writers and creators.
But it seems that in their infinite wisdom, children have the perfect response for this one. In a new video from the Kids React YouTube series, a group of pre-pubescents offer their opinions on the controversy. The reactions were varied, just as they were with adults on social media.
Some of them didn't get it, and some didn't see it as a big deal. But most thought it was a great idea for shows to be inclusive.
"People just need to get over it," one kid said. "There are worse things in the world than a boy dating a boy and a girl dating a girl."
Sometimes, it just helps to hear it from a child's perspective. Watch kids react to Bert and Ernie's relationship below:
