Oh, FOX. Not just "denies he had sex" but "denies he had GAY sex".

It'd be nice to see CTW do something than continue the over-marketing of that character.

Christ....it was like that series was nothing but Elmo for the past decade.

Is Elmo hard gay or soft gay? I want my Elmo pornography to be accurate.

Yeah, that doesn't sound too good for Clash.

However: 45-year-old men that chase 18-year-old women are creepy losers, too.

Clash admitted to TMZ he and the individual had sex, but only after he was above the age of consent.

Isn't this always the last ditch explanation before charges are filed?

"We waited until 12:01 on his 18th birthday before we had sex. Honest"

Just make some changes and use Elmo as a symbol of punishment.

When they turned the show into Elmo Street, they kind of set themselves up for Mr. Rogers/Rodgering-type problems.

Sad. If I recall correctly, this "Elmo" guy has a daughter. So, assuming that this report is the usual "Faux News" level of accurate, there is some young lady having to go to school today and hear about how her dad is a homosexual child molester even though likely he's just gay, lived on the down low for a while, and is now not only outed but dealing with charges espoused by a spurned lover. Regardless of the damage to Sesame Street, Elmo, or Clash himself, the damage to the daughter's life is tragic, especially if the crap turns out to be a big fat series of lies.

That's really a bummer. Kevin (from watching the documentary) is a very lucky fellow in general, getting to do what he wanted from an early age as far as a career. I don't think he'd throw it all away for some kid. I'm having a really tough time with believing this is anything but some kid, who had a relationship with him, wanting to tear the dude down after maybe being spurned?

And this is from someone who went completely nuts when the marketing for Elmo was out of control in the 90s (worked in a toy store at the time and didn't get it at all).

Did anyone else notice the caption to the picture? It said "Kevin Clash (right) and Elmo." In case we wouldn't figure out which one was Elmo and which one was Kevin.

He probably is a cool person with horrible, horrible judgment in the matter of his personal relationships. He trusted someone he shouldn't have and now he's in serious trouble.

Barring additional evidence coming to light, this is a "he said/he said" and should have went away, but of course that's not how these things work.

When did this whole Elmo thing start anyway?

I remember when the "tickle me" stuff came out I was left wondering who this elmo guy was. Then it was explained that it was just a red version of Grover with a "weetawded" voice.

But I'm still left wondering when it was that grover was dipped in red paint to first produce this thing.

Yep. A good chunk of audience can be alienated by him just being gay, which is ridiculous, but I can see it happening. The kid knew exactly what he was doing, even if it's found to not be true, just forcing Kevin to out himself when it wasn't something that needed to be at the forefront of his career can be damage enough.

Elmo is something like half of Sesame Street now. And I can't even imagine how much funding comes in just from Elmo products.

This person may end up doing what Mitt Romney couldn't do: kill Sesame Street.

In many states (including the state of Maryland, where Kevin grew up), 16 is the age of consent.

His daughter was born in 1993. She's only 3 years younger than her dad's boy-toy. Cry me a river. If Clash was so concerned about his daughter, he shouldn't have jumped in the sack with a kid who could have attended the same high school as her.

Actually TMZ broke the story, not Fox News. Nice of you to keep your partisan sword sharp though.

/likely she already knows, given that this has been playing out for a while now and was bound to go public
//gossip rags that out people without their consent should burn, but that's just my opinion

... and one of the last role models for anyone born in the 80s has fallen. I wouldn't jump to that conclusion if it weren't for the 'I totally porked that boy, but he was 18. I was only, like, 43'.

Best case, he was 24 or so when this boy was born. Whether he waited 16 or 18 years to stick his peter in that child is irrelevant. He's still a pervy pedophile.

George Carlin is dead, Clash is a pedo.. Penn State was a bastion of rape and cover-up. What's left?

There is a whole swath of people, around my age (29) who are operating as parents, even though we came from the 80s. We dont know what we're doing, because we were lucky if we didn't get molested back then. There was no actual parenting going on. The 80s was a neglect-orgy, parenting-wise.

"Oh, you were born in the 80s and no one molestered you? You lucky kid, you. Sorry you have zero reference for parenting in general, but hey, at least your butthole is still tight."

There's the most important part of the article, and it doesn't even tell us the important information. If this happened in New York, the age of consent is 17 and a (physical) relationship that starts when the young man is 16 is against the law. If this occured in New Jersey, 16 is the age of consent and no crime has been committed.

The TMZ article on this says Clash took a leave of absence from Sesame Street to defend himself and that the only thing they've seen cause to discipline him over with was misuse of company email. It appears they don't believe his accuser because they've asked for evidence and all they say they got was an email that they think is forged.

Oh, and I guess this is the thread where I get to say I met Kevin Clash. While working for Terminix (around 2005), I was doing a termite inspection at what turned out to be Kevin's ex-wife's house. While I was filling out the paperwork, I heard Elmo coming from another part of the house. I asked her about it, and she said "Oh, that's my ex-husband doing a radio interview. He's Elmo!"

This was just a few years after the tickle-me Elmo craze, so I asked his ex-wife "You must have done very well after tickle-me Elmo," to which she responded "It paid some bills, yeah."

About 10 minutes later, as I was about to leave, Kevin finished his radio interview and came out. We shook hands, I told him how much of an honor it was to meet him, and I went on my way.
