St. Elmo's Liar (He Didn't Do It)

I haven't watched Sesame Street since my sister was a li'l bit, which is probably around 38 years ago or so. But I was one of the original watchers of the program (along with The Electric Company, Zoom, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood and Villa Alegre!), and have been a fan of Jim Henson's Muppets for just as long (even Fraggle Rock and The Land of Gorch). Beyond all of that, I'm especially irritated by the heinous stereotype of homosexuality=pedophilia, and of false accusations. This story has both, and the accuser should be sued and stomped. Period. Generations of kids love Elmo, and in one false accusation, he and his creator have been sullied. Shameful, sad, and just plain wrong.


St. Elmo's Liar

The man who accused Kevin Clash—the voice of Elmo—of having a sexual relationship with him when he was underage has recanted that claim. This message is brought to you by the letter "L" for lyin'-ass famewhore. I hope Clash, who was still punished for violating company policies and abusing company Internet resources, will be able to put this behind him.  . .

PS. It should be noted that I don't usually steal entire posts from other bloggers. But it is late, and I found Matthew's post, and thought it was important to get it up before I forgot. It's terrible to be falsely accused, and important to get the word out that Mr. Clash is not guilty of any crime.
