Oh goodness, a beloved children's character going the way of Sandusky!? Say it ain't so!
Elmo puppeteer, Kevin Clash (45), who controlled Sesame Street's Elmo, has been accused of having a sexual relationship with a 16 year old boy. Clash denies the allegations and insists it happened when he was an adult. His accuser contacted the workshop in June alleging that he had a sexual relationship with Clash seven years ago.
TMZ reported that Clash has retained the same law firm that defended Jerry Sandusky, Andreozzi & Associates. The workshop said, "Elmo is bigger than any one person and will continue to be an integral part of Sesame Street as it has been for 40 years."
I sure hope they're right.... Isn't there ANYONE we can trust!? (Clash is taking a leave of absence).
This makes me so sad.....
