Everyone’s talking about: Are Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street gay or not?

The internet has been set alight by some comments made by a former writer on Sesame Street:

I always felt that without a huge agenda, when I was writing Bert & Ernie, they were [gay]. I didn’t have any other way to contextualize them.

Sesame Workshop, the educational organisation behind the kid’s TV show released a statement to say that ‘Bert and Ernie are the best of friends’.
