After blasting Snoop Dogg, Jim Henson Productions
and NBC on his "O’Reilly Factor" television show, Bill O’Reilly has
dealt another blow to a rapper in less than two months.
Jim Henson Productions recently announced that
"A Very Merry Muppet Christmas" will cut approximately a half an hour
of footage from the made-for TV special, including a cameo by Snoop Dogg.
In a statement, Jim Henson Productions claimed
that the cuts were for production reasons and not because of the heat that ensued
as a result of O’Reilly’s comments or because of Snoop’s sordid past.
