Hell hath no fury like Mrs. Cheryl Fernandez-Versini scorned.
The X Factor judge was left seeing red during last night’s show after Simon Cowell made a cruel quip about her very green dress, comparing her to Kermit the Frog.
Although Chezza appeared to take the comment on the chin, laughing A LOT a the time it was said and later slamming Simon by saying that she’s ‘not the only muppet on the panel’, the mass Twitter lolz that came after Si’s comparison appears to have hit a nerve.
This morning Cheryl took to MazSight to show that she can totes laugh at herself, sharing a photo of the X Factor juding panel with Kermit photoshopped in her place and the caption: “And here I am on the panel last night”.
Ah lovely, isn’t it good to see that the 31-year-old is in high spirits about the entire thing?
Erm, well, that’s not exactly the case.
The passive aggressive caption continues with: “This one is especially for those who have no opinion of their own until Simon tells them what they should think #sheep #kermit”
Eek, calm down Chezza, it was just a bit of banter.
Although we can’t help but notice the *slight* irony in the comment considering the controversy Cheryl caused in her Six Seat Challenge this year, when she opted to send home Chloe Jasmine only for Simon to tell her that she had made a mistake, and Cheryl ‘change her mind’ and bring Chlo back.
Pots and kettles come to mind but it makes great TV, and that’s all that really matters.
Despite Cheryl’s MazSight rant, the good people of Twitter continue to be quite tickled by ‘Kermit-Gate’ and it looks like it’s just one of those things that she is going to have to ride out:
I’m gunna be (500 miles) by Jay James. Love it! Kermit saying it was odd is a smidge hypocritical given Chloe’s odd take on Fame!

Soz Kerm, erm, we mean Cheryl, it doesn’t look like people are going to let you forget this one anytime soon.
On the plus side, the dress was actually a beauty and Cheryl looked flippin’ amazing as per usual – bright green colour and all.
