Sesame Street Tainted – Voice Of Elmo Accused Of Sex With 16-Year-Old Boy

I’ll so never look at that little red googly-eyed puppet the same way again…

Kevin Clash, the famous voice of Elmo and star of the documentary Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journeyis being accused of sleeping with an underage boy.

Clash has taken a leave of absence, admitting that there was a relationship but insisting that it didn’t begin until after the man (now 23) turned 18, and NOT when he was 45 and the victim was 16. Lawyers for Sesame Street believed there was not enough evidence to support the claims, which originally surfaced in June.

Kevin Clash: “I had a relationship with [the accuser]. It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to make it into something it was not.” 

Sesame Workshop reps: “Elmo is bigger than any one person and will continue to be an integral part of Sesame Street to engage, educate and inspire children around the world.”
