Please don't let this be true!!!


Kevin Clash, the Emmy -winning puppeteer famous for his performance as Sesame Street's Elmo for the past 27 years, is denying accusations that he had sex with a 16-year-old boy.


Sesame Workshop issued a statement Monday saying that a 23-year-old man contacted the company in June alleging he and the 52-year-old Clash had a relationship seven years prior. Workshop reps say they met with the unidentified accuser twice and communicated with him on repeated occasions. They also met with Clash, who adamantly denied wrongdoing.


Mind you that this is happening a week after a million puppets marched on Washington for PBS and Sesame Street.


Here's a link from the story:

Well their post indicates that he didn't actually do anything with the guy.

We also conducted a thorough investigation and found the allegation of underage conduct to be unsubstantiated. Although this was a personal relationship unrelated to the workplace, our investigation did reveal that Kevin exercised poor judgment and violated company policy regarding internet usage and he was disciplined.

Yeah I don't know how to feel about this...either way it's very unfortunate. I'm still hoping that it turns out it's not true. And Elmo is my favorite too :(

It's true. =/ I saw it in the newspaper just this morning. It's pretty disappointing. Elmo's World was always one of my favorite part of Sesame Street.
Here's how I think we're all feeling at the moment:

I know, very disappointing. And I just watched the biography on Kevin Clash, like two weeks ago. Hope it's not true, but if someone claims they did it with you, and they're underage, it calls in media attention, and there's probably no proof either way. So I hope Kevin is truly innocent

So apparently the accuser came forward and said that it didn't happen. That's good, but unfortunately the accusation will still affect his career =/

True, because sadly no ones going to remember that he recanted his statement, only that the charge was made. So unfair.
