Kevin Clash, Voice of Elmo, Responds to Sexual Allegations: "Yes, I'm Gay, But..."

Kevin Clash, Voice of Elmo, Responds To Sexual Allegations
58-year old Kevin Clash who is the voice of the popular Sesame Street character Elmo is has been accused of having a gay sexual relationship with a minor in the past. But his anonymous and alleged victim (who is now 23 years old) has now recanted his allegations. Clash has since released the following statement denying the allegations:

“I am a gay man. I have never been ashamed of this or tried to hide it, but felt it was a personal and private matter. I had a relationship with the accuser. It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to characterize it as something other than what it was. I am taking a break from Sesame Workshop to deal with this false and defamatory allegation.”

Responding to the accuser's recanted allegation, Clash comments: “I am relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest. I will not discuss it further.”

It seems like Sesame Street, just like Wall Street and Main Street, now has it's own scandals.
