A new video from the popular YouTube series titled Kids React, featuring a group of kids opening up on their opinions on whether or not Bert & Ernie from Sesame Street are a couple has gone viral.
The Kids React video follows Sesame Street writer Mark Saltzman ended years of speculation on whether characters Bert and Ernie were gay or not, claiming that the duo was actually inspired by his own relationship with his life partner, acclaimed film editor Arnold ‘Arnie’ Glassman.
“There are worst things in the world than a boy dating a boy and a girl dating a girl” 13-year-old Chloe says adding “people just need to get over it.”

Despite Saltzman’s claims, Sesame Workshop has tweeted a statement denying all saying “As we have always said, Bert and Ernie are best friends.”
