Romney could have gone after Cookie Monster and received Mayor Blooberg’s blessing, but he had to take a swipe at Big Bird instead.
And Elmo! Imagine what he could have said about Elmo:
Salacious details emerged in the case against the voice behind the beloved “Sesame Street” character Elmo, who took a leave of absence from the show after he was accused of having a relationship with an underage male.
Kevin Clash, who has been the voice of Elmo for 26 years, admitted that he had a relationship with the unknown male, but that it did not begin until after he was 18.
“I’m sorry that I keep talking about sex with you, its driving me insane,” Clash wrote.
He continued, “I want you to know that I love you and I will never hurt you. I’m here to protect you and make sure your dreams come true,” and ”I’ll have my assistant book a ticket for you to come to NY and we can talk about this in person.”
The accuser filed a complaint with Sesame Street Workshop in June when he was 23, alleging that he had a sexual relationship when he was 16 and Clash was 45.
A fifty-something year old man who earns his living voicing a pre-pubescent furry red monster. I think it’s important that we underwrite that way of life, don’t you? Who are we to judge love?
It wouldn’t be the first time there was interspecies love on Sesame Street.
Long time readers will know how much I treasure this video.
