You know how it goes, you’re at a party having some drinks, dancing, having crystal meth and sex with Elmo’s voice actor. Oh, you guys didn’t? Too bad. In new accusations toward Elmo creator Kevin Clash, one young man is now claiming that Clash used to hold meth-fueled gay drug parties.
With the recent and unceremonious departure of Elmo creator and Sesame Street head Muppeteer Kevin Clash, many have wondered about the future of Elmo. Elmo still makes a shit ton of money, an Clash is the creator, voice and life of Elmo, so it’s a good question. As it turns out, Clash has recorded enough Elmo dialogue to last til 2014, and he’s already trained people on playing Elmo, so Sesame Street has about a year and a half to figure out what to do.
Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash’s accuser recants his recant, Clash quits Sesame Street. Elmo’s dead, baby. Elmo’s dead.
About a week ago, Sesame Street was rocked to its core when head Muppeteer and the creator and voice of Elmo Kevin Clash was accused of having a relationship with a 15 year old when Clash was 43. A day later, the accuser, now 23, said the relationship happened when he was 18, not 15. And now, he’s taken back the taking back, and Kevin Clash has quit Sesame Street. Way to go… you killed Elmo.
Yesterday, we reported that Elmo creator and puppeteer Kevin Clash had been put on leave from Sesame Street after a 23 year old man accused Clash of having a sexual relationship with him when he was a minor. Now that accuser has taken back his claims, saying that he was an adult when he had a relationship with the puppeteer.
While Elmo isn’t my favorite Muppet ever, Kevin Clash is one of my favorite puppeteers ever. So I don’t even think I want to believe the accusations now facing him, that he had a sexual relationship with a minor. Kevin Clash is awesome and can do no wrong, dammit.
