Elmo Exits Sesame Street Amid 2nd Gay Pedophilia Charge, Lawsuit, and Failed $125,000 Payoff

Just when you thought Sesame Street was safe again, you find out that Elmo’s insatiable hunger for the flesh of little boys will not be quenched as a fresh homosexual, pedophilia charge emerges.

This time, the accuser has come out openly making charges directly at Elmo puppeteer, Kevin Clash. The new accuser is Cecil Singleton and he claims that Kevin Clash molested him when he was 15 years old. Specifically, TMZ reports that

According to Singleton, his sexual relationship with Clash began when he was 15 and Clash was an adult … and initially lasted for 2 weeks. But they picked things up a while later.

Singleton claims that while they never had sexual intercourse, the two did engage in several sexual activities together … including “groping, masturbation, intense kissing, dry-humping.”

Singleton says they had sexual intercourse years later … when Cecil was an adult.

Furthermore, E! is also reporting that Singleton is suing Clash for more than 5 million dollars in damages: psychological and emotional. A very detailed report of Cecil’s charge and accusation is here.

As we reported before, the first accuser was Sheldon Stephens, who claims to have signed a deal to keep quiet for a mere $125,000. It seems Stephens now claims that he signed the agreement under duress and no longer wants to honor it.

As all of this has emerged, it looks like the Sesame Workshop has decided that Kevin Clash has molested enough children on Sesame Street and has thrown him overboard. As reported in The Telegraph, PBS should be recognized for writing the kindest firing speech for a pedophile ever:

In a statement on Tuesday, Sesame Workshop, the non-profit organisation behind the show, said: Kevin Clash has helped us achieve that mission for 28 years, and none of us, especially Kevin, want anything to divert our attention from our focus on serving as a leading educational organisation.

Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding Kevin’s personal life has become a distraction that none of us want, and he has concluded that he can no longer be effective in his job and has resigned from Sesame Street. This is a sad day for Sesame Street.

With all of this, you would think that Sesame Street would have had enough of Elmo, but that does not seem to be the case. As E! reports, Sesame Street plans to continue the muppet’s career on the show.

Gay Elmo Puppeteer Accused of Pedophilia, Confirmed as Internet Pervert

It gives a whole new meaning to the saying, “Tickle me, Elmo.” In a bizarre tale that has several unsavory turns, the man behind (no pun intended) the muppet Elmo was accused of carrying on a homosexual liaison with an underaged boy.

Specifically, the homosexual former lover of the Elmo muppeteer, Kevin Clash 52, asserted that Clash had sex with him when the accuser was only 16. According to Clash their relationship did not start until the accuser was at least 18; he is now 23.

Eventually, the accuser dropped his charges and the question remains: why? The initial charges were brought against Kevin Clash in June. The account of the June accusation, as recorded in the Toronto Star, runs as follows:

“We took the allegation very seriously and took immediate action,” Sesame Workshop said in a statement issued Monday. “We met with the accuser twice and had repeated communications with him. We met with Kevin, who denied the accusation.”

The organization described the relationship as “unrelated to the workplace.” Its investigation found the allegation of underage conduct to be unsubstantiated. But it said Clash exercised “poor judgment” and was disciplined for violating company policy regarding Internet usage. It offered no details.

In other words, the incident was swept under the rug, despite the fact that Kevin Clash was found to be doing something inappropriate on the internet. It is not surprising that PBS was quick to ditch this issue; a perverted muppet is a terrible marketing tool for children.

The question is why did the accuser bring this issue up in November after it was dismissed in June only to dismiss it again? Was he paid to go away and never be heard from again? It would not be surprising since PBS would hate the publicity, and PBS and Kevin Clash are not talking now.

That begs the question: Is there still a pedophile on Sesame Street? Whether or not the accuser was over 18 at the time is only legally relevant. The fact is that it takes a sick 50 year old man to take sexual advantage of an 18 year old boy. That is not the sort of person that I would want anywhere near a children’s television program.
