Sesame Street Just Introduced Its First Homeless Character, Named “Crack”

December 13, 2018 | News | Sam Robeson | 0 Comments


Okay I made up the second part. But Sesame Street’s homeless Muppet named Lily might as well be nicknamed “Crack Fentanyl Rape Cum Dumpster” because bitch is on the streets. Lily was introduced as a dirty poor girl seven years ago, but the show has now made the decision to make her full-blown homeless:

When Lily was first launched (in 2011), she came out as part of the food insecurity initiative. So she’s not brand new, but [homelessness] seemed like a really perfect extension of her story, so that we could use her to help children identify with.

With any of our initiatives, our hope is that we’re not only reaching the children who can identify with that Muppet but that we’re also helping others to have greater empathy and understanding of the issue.

I truly think empathy is one of the most important things we can teach kids, because it has the potential of keeping them from becoming bitter dead on the inside assholes such as myself. With that said, I also think we in America have two extremely different interpretations of homelessness. One is the wholesome spotted-kerchief-on-a-stick Johnny Appleseed Homeless to Harvard plucky go-getter.

The other is the bipolar Fentanyl addict public masturbator child sex offender. (Which, by the way, if you want to know more about, can check out in thisĀ truly wild article on the Walmart of heroin, Philadelphia.) My point is that statistically speaking Lily is an addict and will die from AIDS after having been severely sexually and mentally abused by a string of guys who look like Eminem. Happy now liberal Hollywood?
