We recently had covered that Kevin Clash, “the voice of Elmo,” was accused of having a sexual relationship with a teen. Apparently, that wasn’t enough to prompt a reaction reaction from the makers of Sesame Street. However, the second accuser seemed to make an impact…
And what’s that? You say Elmo likes boys just a little bit too much?
Kevin Clash — known as the voice of Elmo — is facing NEW allegations that he had a sexual relationship with a SECOND underage boy …
The accuser — who is now in his 30s — has filed a lawsuit against Clash … claiming the two met on a gay phone chat line … when the accuser was 15 years old and Clash was 32. . . .
Among the allegations, [Cecil] Singleton claims, “[Clash] trolled gay telephone chat line rooms to meet and have sex with underage boys.”
In the lawsuit, filed in federal court in NYC, Singleton claims Clash “groomed [the accuser] to gain his trust by, among other things, taking him to nice dinners and giving him money.”
Singleton claims while Clash was featured on “Sesame Street,” he was “preying on teenage boys to satisfy his depraved sexual interests.”
That’s so sad. And now Elmo’s going bye-bye.
Seriously, why isn’t this a major news story. I mean, Sesame Street is featured on the publicly funded PBS, and the iconic red muppet (now an alleged pedophile) makes enough money in merchandising to fund PBS many times over, it seems to me that there might be some coverage of this sad affair?
I guess it’s that Elmo isn’t a Republican.
