Would you be offended if you knew the Elmo puppeteer when you were underage and he never put the moves on you?

They smell blood in the water. Elmo is a cash cow (toys, books, he's King of all Children's Media) so here's a chance to get some sweet settlement to keep moms and dads buying Elmo products for their kids.

They (the accusers) know PBS/Sesame Workshop would rather settle a (potentially) false lawsuit than have a public fight about it.

I agree that these allegations are probably fake. But Sesame Workshop cannot and should not take responsibility for an employee's private actions. The accusers may go after them, but their lawyers need only say: fark off.

So far all three of these alleged underage gays say met Clash in a gay chatroom. If they were underage and hanging out in chatrooms, they knew what the deal was. To come back 12 years later and make accusations is ridiculous. No judge should even hear their cases; they should be summarily dismissed.

Probably, but it's not uncommon for an offender to have several victims before being caught.

At this point, it's better to wait and see...

Irritating. Its not like he kidnapped them, they met him knowlingly. What is the age of consent or is that law just to look pretty

16yo hooks up with a guy on a site for guys to hook up.... profit?

Sorry, don't get that one.

People in positions like this really should be more careful. Being gay is enough liability (in the eyes of some people). Having hookups is a liability for anyone. Having gay hookups when you're the frelling voice of Elmo is pretty unwise, regardless of the ages.

Hoping this gets taken care of with a minimum of collateral damage.

How are you a victim when you chat and plan out whats going to happen and then knowingly meet the person, and then not complain for 10 years?

Shocking, people see an opportunity to get rich and lawyer up instead of going to the police... I totally believe these allegations aren't at all motivated by the millions of dollars they're suing for.

I like how the lawyer had him file as a John Doe -- trying to signal that his client should be treated like a rape victim. May be technically justifiable because they say the victim was 16, but that was 13 years ago. Of course his real name will be outed. And their story is that the 16 year old met Elmo because he (the victim) was trolling for men. Case sounds like a real stinker.

Big Bird tried to warn them years ago, but they all figured he had made it up just like snufulufagus.
 
2012-11-27 12:49:39 PM
OK, so if these actually happened, why are we only hearing about lawsuits? Why go directly to CTW? Shouldn't they be going to, you know, the police? There is no Statute of Limitations with this type of crime anymore, so it is not that it happened years ago.

Money grab. Plain and simple.

Oh, and did anyone else noticed the slide show of videos of muppet scandals at the bottom? Thinking about it, I am not surprised the the "Mana mana" song was written for a soft core porn video.
 
2012-11-27 12:53:38 PM
When this first came up (no pun intended) it was Elmo puppeteer in underage sex scandal, so the first thought was that he was bagging 10 year olds that were on the Sesame street set. Hang him high!

Then as you actually read past the headlines, it was 16 years olds, they met in a gay chat room, they got together for consensual sex, and now it's like...well not so sure what the issue is
 
2012-11-27 12:53:39 PM

Before this is all over with I believe we're all going to learn a LOT more about the gay "twink" culture than we ever wanted to know.

I can't fault the guy for having a preference for young guys, but DAMN dude, you gots to ask for ID when you're a celebrity.

Even though he's behind a shortstop, it's still hard to confirm his "catcher or pitcher" status.

why would sesame workshop be involved in the lawsuit in anyway? The dude was a puppeteer. no one knew him as Elmo, so what was he making a 100k per year? How does he have any money to be sued over?
 
2012-11-27 12:56:40 PM
I'm not defending criminal activity, but it's interesting to note that 16-year-olds wont get you into trouble in some surprising countries.

In Canada, for example, so long as you're not in a position of authority or trust over the person, 16 is the legal age of consent. Doesn't excuse any lawbreaking that may have occurred, here, but it opens the door to discussions about when a person's physchological abiity for intelligent "consent" really kicks in. I'd lean towards later, rather than earier.

... except that he's admitted to having sexual relationships with two of the accusers. The only question is whether he nailed them while they were underage, or if he waited until their birthdays. And at the point where you've got a 40 year old admitting to banging barely-legal 18 year olds, you have to wonder if maybe, just maybe, at least one of them wasn't quite "barely".
