I want to wait until more comes out, but that is some crazy allegation if so.

It's really depressing. This guy is great with kids and has even granted dying wishes. I hope it's a false accusation.

According to this article he admits to the relationship but says the man was legal at the time.

Kevin Clash seemed like such a great guy in his documentary. It seems this might just be a money grab.I hope this gets sorted out soon.Clash has become an important part of Sesame Street.

if Clash is not denying it and then saying that the guy was of legal age, then in the words of Kurt Angle...

"it's true... oh, it's TRUE!"

Meh, Jim Henson company paid him hush money me thinks to make this story go away.

I'm not saying Clash did anything illegal, but Sesame or whoever with the deep pockets opened them up.

Clearly there was SOMETHING behind this story.

It sounds like a classic case of an angry ex-boyfriend doing his best to get revenge. He knew there was nothing more devastating to a children's show performer than an allegation of sexual abuse, so that's what he went for. It wouldn't be the first time that happened and it won't be the last.

Hell, that kind of sexual abuse would devastate all but the most grimy career.

You're not saying he did anything illegal but you're saying that the only reason the accuser recanted is because he was paid off. That certainly doesn't make Clash sound innocent.

More because it looks bad. Even if the kid was of legal age, it's a pretty sketchy issue. I mean even if its an older guy and a younger woman who 16 years old and even if that's age of consent somewhere, I think it's still pretty sketchy.

But I think the news is pretty obviously means it was a payoff to get this guy to recant.

However, honestly it wouldn't surprise me if someone else played Elmo in the future.

But I can see how this might make parents nervous.

I"m sure someone else will play elmo. He's a huge moneymaker and a big draw to the show I imagine

It's always guys who are in the closet, or halfway in the closet, that this kind of stuff happens to. There's a lesson here somewhere.
