The voice of Elmo,Â Kevin Clash, stands accused of having sex with a young boy. The boy who is now 23-years-old accuses Clash of having sex with him as a teenager.
According to MSNBC, “Sesame Workshop says puppeteer Kevin Clash denies the charges, which were first made in June by the alleged partner, who by then was 23.”
Say it isn’t so! Could Elmo be a pervert? Clash stands accused, but he denies the charges. The puppeter who made Elmo a household friend has resigned at least temporarily. “Sesame Street” management claims Clash is at least guilty of breaking company policy. Now, is he guilty of something far worse?
How can someone take fame and innocence to the dirty street while our children learn another lesson from “Sesame Street.” I personally, hope Elmo is found innocent and cleared of charges, but if Elmo is a naughty puppet, I will packing my kids’ “Tickle Me Elmo” and putting him into the garbage bin where such perversion belongs.
