The former voice of Elmo.

Of course, we're still waiting for the white smoke to come from Hooper's Store after they decide his successor.

I hate this $#!+. I honestly do.

I watched the Kevin Clash documentary, and I really, REALLY wanted to believe he was just a sweet, gentle man with an ardent love for the Muppets. But now I have to live with the knowledge that he's a drug-addled sexual predator with a daunting trail of victims, and that makes me sad.

I DON'T LIKE BEING SAD.

You think this is crazy, you should have seen Jim Henson and the Sesame Street gang in the 1970's.

One time Oscar the grouch did a booty bump and then gave Stevie Nicks gonorrhea by going down on her in a pile of garbage. Another time, Mr. Sunffleupagus OD'd and Big Bird had to stab him in the heart with a syringe.

When Elmo was promoted to his own brand I knew it would kill Sesame Street and I was right. The shrill overhyped character as a shill couldn't fail.

Funny, I watched it before all this came out and the sense of Clash that I got was that he was a weird man-child who'd never properly matured.  And I say that as someone who has a deep and abiding love for the Muppets.

This.


I have a feeling the truth of this one is less outlandish than the accuser claims.

Drug-addled? Possibly. Drug-using? Yeah, not good.

Predator? Depends when he and the accuser started having sexual contact.

Trail? Has there been more than one?

Your own words are leading you down a certain path. One that you probably want to believe.

I'm still clinging to my faith in him. I don't mind him doing drugs or having kinky sex. He did so much good I can dismiss that. But the underage thing bothers me. I really don't want him to turn out to be a predator.

So, yeah. Sad.

I don't much care if Clash was banging people of consenting age at every opportunity.
But meth?  FFS wasn't he getting paid enough to abuse *prescription* drugs?

The age of consent is 17 in New York.  The other supposed victims were 17.    Gay sex on drugs might not be your thing, but that doesn't mean that Clash is not still a gentle sweet man who loves the Muppets.

ginandbacon: I don't mind him doing drugs or having kinky sex. He did so much good I can dismiss that. But the underage thing bothers me. I really don't want him to turn out to be a predator.


I'm of the same mind.  My hope is that this was fully consensual but now the ex-partner has seen the potential to make a payday out of his experience.  Sex with a 16-year-old, no matter how willing, is definitely not my cup of tea, but it's also not in the same league as if he had been molesting pre-pubescent (aka Sesame-Street age) children.

I do want to give the guy a bit of the benefit of the doubt, and it's not because of some childhood affinity for the Elmo character (I farking hate Elmo).

I watched the documentary and Clash just creeped me out.  You just knew he was doing something on the side.  And I was awarded with meth fueled gay sex parties so I'm feeling pretty good right now.

Still no proof, Clash's claim was gay sex with an 18 year old, the kids claim was gay sex with a 16 year old. If we can ignore the gay part, its really just another Hollywood story of he said/he said. I'd imagine this guy has SOME proof from when he was younger such as emails or TXTs?

Having sex with the voice of Elmo while his chauffeur watches and masturbates isn't normal.

But on meth it is.

Those were coached/brain washed 5 year olds the accusers in this case are adults and the abuse happened when they were teens.

I've got nothing against the transgendered in general, but Clash's real problem here is that he had a weakness for the sort of drama-addicted attention whore drag queens who will use their granny's stretched-out hide as a trampoline to jump in front of a paparazzo. Clash could have choked down a yard of choad every day while smoking a rock of tina the size of his throbbing purple glans, and as long as they were dudes like him, nobody would care--that's pretty much what every gay man in NYC did during the nineties and early aughts. But he had to go for the pretty ladyboys. I don't think that they even care about the money, at least that much--once they realize that they'll have to split it several ways, that is.

I read that in the cigarette stained voice of the owner of Itchy and Scratchy, with the addition "kids are dumb and don't know what's good."

Seriously, i'm sure they researched everything, but pandering crap like Elmo and Teletubbies (where babies are happy to look at other babies,and the same 5 minute short repeated just after you watched it, can diaf)

caddisfly: Clowns, puppeteers, and "youth pastors."


What is "people who commit crimes of opportunity"?

And let's not forget schoolteachers, scout troop leaders, team coaches, monks, and celebrities like Michael Jackson (US) and Jimmy Savile (UK).

Pedophiles are naturally attracted to anything which gives them access to children without constant supervision.

Of course, Crash is by no means a pedophile and might not even be a sexual predator--16- year-old gays are often about as innocent and naive as a Cheap Whore House Madam. Many of them are predators in their own right, having turned from pedophile victims to victimizers (about 75% of the vicitims go on to offend themselves, much as abused children become abusers or worse, gun-toting loonies).

None of this stuff has been confirmed in court, such as it is. I can believe that Crash is a kindly, warm-hearted puppeteer who loves muppets and moppets, because there is no real hard line between sociopathic and normal, good-hearted people person and sexual predator, etc.

Sugar Daddies and Mommies are at risk of being robbed, beaten, murdered, tortured and black-mailed by their erstwhile lovers and protégé(e)s.

I'm not the Blame-the-Victim type, but neither am I naive enough to think they are sweet little innocents led astray.

A life of crime often begins at conception, or possibly a couple of generations before. It can be genetic, epigentic, congenital or engrained by late child hood. And women are as bad as men, although not as frequently.

I am saddened by the fall of a great puppeteer. I hope we don't have to go through the Michael Jackson thing again. At least we are not talking children sold to a pedophile by their own parents star-worship and greed. We are talking future Porn Stars of America. Hustlers on the make, some of them, but angels, probably none of them.

I never did like Elmo that much.

More of an Oscar the Grouch fan myself. He had a heart of gold. People throw away the weirdest junk.
