Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs said Wednesday he didn’t know of any plans to take down the controversial ad featuring the famous feathery star, despite a request by Sesame Workshop.

Gibbs made the comment on NBC’s “Today” show, a day after campaign officials said they were reviewing Sesame Workshop’s appeal.

The satirical TV ad featured a menacing voiceover warning of Mitt Romney’s anti-Big Bird agenda, playing off the Republican nominee’s debate claim that he wants to cut funding to PBS.
