    Yeah, it's headline news everywhere right now. The Elmo guy (who is 52) claims that his relationship with the accuser was when the boy was 18, not 16. So he may not be a pedophile - he's just a creep. No matter how this plays out, his career is over. There's no way Sesame Street is gonna let a guy who is accused of child rape back to work regardless if it ends up being a false accusation. Whether it's right or wrong, parents will undoubtedly still have a problem with knowing the 52 year old man voicing arguably the most famous & adored muppet is having homosexual relations with boys that are only 18 years old aka still not even 'legal' in many states. There's just no way Sesame Street will turn a blind eye to that.

    Jim Henson, I am sorry at how your Muppets and Muppeteers have changed since you left this earth.

    Just a handful of jokes I have:

    I would have expected this to happen with Bert and Ernie.

    I bet Big Bird knew about this the whole time! Let's fire him for it!

    In all seriousness though, if this is true, it is just sick and wrong.

    I"ve heard differently first of all this guy was married with kids and says he has never been with a guy and has denied ALL accusations and HASN'T stepped down and that Muppets are standing behind him and NOT firing him
    Also this guy took 7 years to come forward? ya right.
    I will see if I can find my source give me a minute
    nevermind I they have changed the original article
    him changing his story doesn't sound good either. Sesame street investigations says it found the allegations unsubstansiated but did find he violated the internet work policy......thats not good either.....kiddie porn?
    So...I guess now he has released a statement saying he is a gay man

    Ah Elmo and Splinter (yes he did Splinter in the TMNT live action movies)

    At this point it doesn't really matter. When allegations of this sort get to this level of a media circus he might as well have done it.

    I kind of wonder if the Henson Co will actually be able to save the character after this guy quickly made himself the face behind Elmo. Don't for a momant think that most comedians are going to let something like this go. I can already see the Faimly Guy and Robot Chicken skits.

    apparently there's a second accuser now too.
    I'm not sure I believe these guys whats the purpose in coming forward 7 years later? To get money thats all I can think of. It's sad as Kevin Clash has been with the Muppets for almost 30 years

    This sucks because Elmo was my favorite of the monsters. He was a cute monster. Now he's just a evil monster.
