Sesame Street SHOCKER! Elmo Puppeteer Kevin Clash Accused Of Tickling Third Victim

kevin clash sexual allegations third underage victim elmo voice puppeteer sesame street count von count

Today's sad news is brought to you by the letters "Z," "O," "M," and "G!"

As in: "ZOMG!! What the heck is happening at 123 Sesame Street?!"

An unidentified male filed suit against Kevin Clash, accusing the former Elmo puppeteer of sexual abuse in 2000 — at a time when the alleged victim was only 16.

Saying he found Kevin on a chat-line before meeting him in person to hook up, the alleged victim plans to release his proof in conjunction with his forthcoming novel focusing on his underage sexual escapades with the children's TV star.

He even claims that that Kevin provided alcohol to him and "groomed him" into engaging in sexual activity that included "oral sex and digital penetration of John's anus."

Of course, it's fishy that the unnamed plaintiff's lawsuit coincides with a book release, but he isn't the first person to speak out against Mzr. Clash.

In fact, this is the third person in only two weeks to accuse the man behind Elmo of taking sexual advantage of underage boys. The first accuser, however, changed his story several times.

Kevin quietly resigned from Sesame Street last week after the second accuser came forward.

These are horrible allegations of heinous crimes — we sincerely hope they prove to be unfounded because no child deserves to suffer through that.

    What's so surprising? It's like Penn State and the priests, once the first victim came out more would follow.

    Also Perez, way to leave out how the first accuser got paid by Clash to retract the story.

    Not to mention, the sentencing of Sandusky coincided with one of the accuser's book release and yet no one seemed to really care. Sandusky victims get believed, the priests victims get believed but because it's Sesame Street no one believes any of the victims?

    If he is guilty I hope he's punished to the full extent…media is a great way to bring light to situations like this but it can also make it harder for people to take victims seriously. Anybody who comes after the first accuser can be made out to seem like a copycat (not by me personally)….I really hate that victims stories are put out in the media the way they are…it's a very hard thing to deal with privately….but on the flip side it does give silent victims extra motivation to tell their stories….idk…there's never a clear cut way to deal with these horrible occurrences…i just hope everyone gets the justice they deserve

    At 16 you do or you dont do. He admits that he was there to hook up. In Michigan your considered an adult at 16.

    Not surprising, child predators usually surround themselves with kids one way or another. Their career is a perfect excuse.

    I CANNOT fucking believe how sick these fucking comments are! You people actually buy all this bullshit?!? These accusers are obviously doing this for money and publicity and are obliterating this guy's practically spotless career. For shame on all these "news" sites and for all of you dumbfucks who actually believe them.

    I'm just not buying this. The first guy was basically bought off to shut up. First of all if it really happened and they felt violated they couldn't have been bought off. Second, look at these dudes track records they are releasing books or looking to be famous.

    Since when do washed up tranny hookers write books?
