After news hit the web that the voice of Sesame Street character Elmo was involved in a relationship with an underage boy the accuser has now admitted through his lawyer that it was a consensual relationship. Kevin Clash who has been the voice of Elmo for 28 years has insisted since this scandal broke that he did have a relationship with the man, but not when he was 16. In a statement released after the new revelation Kevin had this to say:
“I am relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest. I will not discuss it further.”
Is it wrong the accuser was able to create all this controversy anonymously? And do we all owe Elmo a big fat apology?
