Violating Elmo

Kevin Clash in Elmo (courtesy of IMDB)

The puppeteer behind “Sesame Street’sElmo is taking a leave of absence from the show amid allegations that he had an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old boy. Kevin Clash denies the accusations and plans to take action quickly “to protect his reputation.”

“I had a relationship with (the accuser),” Clash told NBC News. “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 took the allegations very seriously and conducted an investigation that could not substantiate the accuser’s claims. However, they did acknowledge that Clash “exercised poor judgment and violated company policy regarding Internet usage,” and also that he “was disciplined.”

It is possible these allegations are false, but the fact they went public means the damage is already done. And the fact that Clash spends each working day with his hand up Elmo’s ass doesn’t bode well for him, either. For the sake of the kids, though, I hope he can clear his name soon.
