INNOCENT!

Elmo's Accuser Recants Statement Read More »

“Elmo thinks he need lawyer now.”

I may have said this in reference to Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, but I’m dead fucking serious this time: Welcome to the exact moment innocence died. Kevin Clash, the man who created Elmo, a character beloved by children everywhere, and whose incredible story of working his way up from the projects of Baltimore to fulfill a life-long dream of becoming the head puppeteer for Sesame Workshop was recently featured in the documentary Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey, is being accused of having gay sex with a 16-year-old. However, Kevin denies the allegations and claims they had consensual sex years later when the man was of age. He’s since taken a voluntary leave of absence from Sesame Workshop to defend his innocence. TMZ reports:

Sesame Workshop officials tell TMZ … they conducted a thorough investigation and determined the allegation of underage sex was unsubstantiated. They say they never tried to silence the accuser — rather they asked for evidence supporting his claim, but he never produced it.
Officials also tell us they’re suspicious because the accuser has an email which TMZ obtained — purportedly sent to him by Clash, acknowledging they had the affair when he was 16. The officials say the accuser never mentioned such an email existed and they believe it’s fraudulent.
But there were other emails between Clash and the accuser, and although they don’t suggest there was underage sex, officials tell us they disciplined him for inappropriate use of company email.
Sesame Workshop honchos tell TMZ … “Kevin insists that these allegations are false and defamatory and he has taken actions to protect his reputation. We have granted him a leave of absence to do so.”
It is unclear why Clash wanted a leave of absence, since he denies the allegations of underage sex.
As for Clash, the voice actor tells TMZ, “I had a relationship with [the accuser]. It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to make it into something it was not.” Clash calls the accusations false and defamatory.

So say this ends up being true and Elmo had sex with a teenager, how is that any different from Doug Hutchinson not only banging Courtney Stodden but marrying her? Shit, she’s practically made from the same materials and probably sings the ABCs if you shove your hand up her butt, too. The only difference is Courtney’s a straight, white blonde girl with giant ti- and, nope, never mind, I got it. Message received.

UPDATE: ELMO’S INNOCENT!

      This has been recanted. Superfish, do the right thing and run a full story so the halfwits that read this site (self included) don’t go around thinking this guy’s a criminal.

    Everytime you vote Democrat, your tax dollars make a Muppet violate another of America’s children…

    Way to go, you fools!

  3. I personally don’t care if Elmo is gay. He’s a voice. Yeah, he probably shouldn’t have had a relationship with a 16-year-old boy, but we still don’t know if he did.

    I was going to say, just wait until some jackass turns this into something political, but somebody already did it. Way to go, jackass.

    • AtomicMug

      I agree! I couldn’t care less who this guy wants to have sex with. And as far as the “16 year old boy” is concerned, he’s old enough to know what he was doing, and if he didn’t; lesson learned, knucklehead!

      Millions of kids grow up with Elmo. Never mind this guy’s PRIVATE life, and let him get back to work!

      Stop bullying this guy because he’s African-American and gay, HATERS!

      • tomjenk

        “he’s old enough to know what he was doing, and if he didn’t; lesson learned, knucklehead!”

        Children grow up at different speeds. By 16, some kids are very worldly, and others still have a lot of growing up to do. Letting some 52 year old man sleep with your 16 year old kid is not the best way to teach him a lesson.

      • Just who’s “letting” anyone have sex with their 16 year old – except that same 16 year old? Once your kids reach the age of consent, that means you don’t get to stand in the way of whatever sexual decisions they make. By that age, hopefully you’ve taught them to value themselves, to be wary of coercion and given them some clue about predators or people who want to use them, but if not…well, you still can’t call Chris Hansen and sic his crew on whoever you’re kid’s having sex with, even if they are way older.

      • stan

        The age of consent in New York, where the cast of Sesame Street lives, is 17. If this happened in New York, there was no valid consent.
        The age of consent for all interstate travel and for sex solicited by e-mail is 18. If this happened outside New York, there was no valid consent. Also, if the accuser is telling the truth about the e-mails, there was no valid consent.
        So any alleged sex that happened between Clash and a 16-year-old would be alleged rape, which brings back the question you spat on, who is letting this guy have an illegal relationship WITH A CHILD?
        I believe in the concept of innocent until proven guilty, for this guy, or Sandusky, or whomever, but never the actual crime of rape itself. They proved Sandusky was a rapist and locked him up. If they can prove Clash screwed a kid, lock him up, too.
        Anyone who would defend this alleged action has no right to condemn, as I have seen you do here many times, and vehemently, a priest who has sex with teenagers in Massachusetts or Ohio (which have lower ages of consent, incidentally).

      • Burt

        Before you get all pedantic one us about numbers, you need to consider that the age of consent from state to state varies. In Canada, it’s 16, was 14 until 2008. Clearly, it’s an arbitrarily determined number, not based on psychology but politics. The same argument can be made about the age for consuming alcohol. It’s 21 in the US, but 18 or 19 in Canada. Think about it.

      • stan

        It was justifiable who asserted that the age of consent is the standard for when children can make sexual decisions. For Crash, that age is 17. (18 if he leaves the state or uses e-mail) My point is only that once you have identified rape, it is unthinkable to defend it, or to discourage people such as the parents from getting involved.

        I will add though, the parents of a child between the ages of consent and majority do still have the authority and responsibility to put an end to a nearly 50 YEAR OLD MAN having sex with their son because they are his guardians and, holy sh*t.–Much the same way that the parents of an 18 year old, high schooler, stripper have messed up even though nothing illegal has happened.

      • stan

        *Clash

      • No, stan, I said the age of consent is when someone can legally make that decision, and regardless of whether you approve or not, you have no legal authority to stop them, regardless of what your indignation tells you. Try to read with comprehension, fer chrissakes. Sorry, you do NOT have “the authority and responsibility” as parents to have the 50 year old guy your kid’s having sex with charged with rape if your kid’s over the age of consent, yet still under 18.

        “Authority and responsibility” as guardians is what it comes down to, but not in the way you’re defining it. But I guess you missed that bit I wrote about giving your kid a good upbringing, making sure they value themselves, educate them about not letting people use them, etc. Because if you’ve dogged and neglected that “responsibility,” so that at age 16/17 your kid is a target and looking for validation, sexual and otherwise, from 50 year old men, then I have news for you – it’s way too late to play the “authority” card, let alone stomp around proclaiming yourself a guardian of any kind.

      • stan

        No, justifiable. A parent has the legal right (authority) and moral obligation (responsibility) to stop their son from interacting with a horny old man who tries to take advantage of him. Parents can dictate whom their children may or may not be with. This responsibility continues even after the son reaches the age of consent, all the way until the age of majority or emancipation. This responsibility applies even if the parents have done a sh*tty job in the past.

        I don’t have the patience to respond in full to the novel that is your other post, but:
        1. You have condemned en masse the priests involved in the entire abuse scandal, not just the extreme cases like Geoghan. The vast majority of those sex abuse cases involved post-pubescent teenagers (still rape though). The coverup organized by Bishops Quinn and Law was highly focused on this point.
        2. The federal government does have a uniform age of consent. It’s 18. It applies to interstate/international travel and communications. The very purpose of that law is so that someone can’t go from the USA to Thailand, or even from New York to Connecticut to get underage sex just because the age of consent is lower there.
        3. It was you who said that Mr. Clash’s alleged victim was responsible for his own sexual decisions because he was sixteen. In New York, that is not the case. This is alleged rape, and you defended it. (You didn’t defend Clash, you defended rape.)
        4. It’s kind of weird to say “blow it out your ass,” which usually means “I don’t care what you think,” and then give an extremely long series of explanations and questions adressing exactly what I think.

      • Good luck in court with that one, stan. You can “dictate” til you’re blue in the face, but if your kid has attained the age of consent, which in most states is lower than the age of majority, you still have no legal say in the matter and can’t sue your child’s sexual partner unless your state has a statute regarding age differences FYI, you’ll need your kid’s cooperation to do that, which is why most “statutory rape” cases go unprosecuted. You can have your minor kid returned to you if they’re shacking up elsewhere, and you’re responsible for the results of those sexual relationships until your kid reaches 18, but that’s the extent of your “legal authority” unless you decide to ship them off to military school or Great Aunt Tilly. You seem to have a real hard time reading with comprehension, so no wonder you can’t grasp that.

        1. I’ve “condemned” the priests in the abuse scandal, as well as Sandusky. So? And? You seem to be fixated on declaring all these molestations as “rape”, which is actually a rather outdated legal term for carnal knowledge of a minor past the age of puberty yet under the age of consent, yet you don’t seem to be able to grasp any other legal concepts going on here. Whatever appeals to you, I guess.

        2. I’ll reiterate: you are laboring under a common misconception. Federal statutes do NOT have a uniform age of consent of 18. Under Chapter 109A, 18 U.S.C. 2243(a), re non-commercial sexual activity, under most circumstances the age is 16, but can be as young as 12 if the other partner is within 4 years of that age. The intent is not unduly interfere with any state’s age of consent law, which would be the case if the age was set to 18 under all circumstances. Get it now?
        You can go to Thailand or another Asian country and participate in sexual tourism/prostitution without breaking any laws there and still be prosecuted when you return home – because what you did would have been illegal in your home country, not because the person there was under 18. The age of consent in Japan is 14; but even if the sex were consensual, when you get back to the USA you could be prosecuted for sexual assault on a minor. The law in question is U.S. Code, Title 18, Chapter 117, SubSection 2423 (b). NOTHING in this law keeps you from having consensual sex with someone under 18, as long as it’s not against the local laws, that person isn’t under the age of consent where you are, and you’re not paying that person (or being paid yourself), and if the person isn’t under the age of 16. Again, if you’re considerably older than the other person there can be statutes you might run afoul of, but those vary from state to state. Do your damn homework.

        3. Once again, I replied to tomjenk that people are responsible for their sexual decisions when they reach the age of consent, not specifically 16, and the reason I said “age of consent” and not “16″ is that each state has different ages.
        “Once your kids reach the age of consent, that means you don’t get to stand in the way of whatever sexual decisions they make.” I also said: “The age of consent is a legal standard and means just that – and regardless of how naive or wordly that newly-hatched consenting adult is, or what “most Americans” think, the decisions they make about who to have sex with are theirs to make, not yours”
        Really, is this so hard to get? But then, not getting it allows you to indulge your fixation with my “defending” the “alleged rape”. You really seem to be very turned on by this “rape” concept. Who’s creepy, now?

        4. Given that you don’t seem to comprehend much, why shouldn’t you fail to understand that “blow it out your ass” is longhand for “fuck you”? As to exactly what I think about you, it’s that you really need to pay attention and not rewrite everyone’s responses to accord with your own definitions.

      • Blow it out your ass, stan – you haven’t seen me condemn anyone, let alone a priest, for having sex with another consenting adult. You also haven’t seen me saying it’s peachy keen for anyone to have sex with someone who’s underage – quite the opposite, so you can go fuck yourself anytime now, and take your WITH A CHILD outrage with you. Sorry you can’t tell those two situations apart, but perhaps you just don’t realize that there’s a major fucking difference between having adult consensual sex with someone who’s considered legally able to decide for themselves and someone who decides to grab the asscheeks of a 10 year old boy in a swiming pool, which is just one of the many fun assaults perpetrated on children by John Geoghan, that priest in MA. Nice spin on trying to present his victims as “teenagers”, though. There’s a good reason why statutory rape and child molestation are not the same crime – try and figure it out.

        You’re also wrong about a few other things. Although there are Federal statutes that protect children from sexual predators, there is NO uniform, or national, age of consent, let alone one of 18 when it comes to state lines or the net.
        Because the age of minority is NOT the same thing as age of consent, for a charge of criminal solicitation of a sexual act over the net to apply, it means that act has to be illegal under state or Federal laws before the age of minority applies. Sorry – a kid could be 16 in MA, or 17 in NY (where a day underage means you’re 16, which is (duh) why that age was mentioned in the first place) and solicited by email, and it still wouldn’t be illegal as long as the other state and the server state have similar ages of consent.
        If the sexual activity going on across state (or international) lines is considered to be non-commercial, then the Fed’s intent is not to unduly interfere with a state’s age of consent law. In that case, consent is actually considered to be a minimum of 12 years (if the other party is within 4 years of the 12-15 year old’s age) and 16 years of age under all other circumstances.
        Only if transporting someone into another state where the intended conduct is illegal to begin with, such as prostitution, child pornography, forced trafficking, etc. does that make it a “criminal sexual act”. Only then does minority (age 18) trump the age of consent.

        Which leads to the next issue – I see you’ve also jumped to a rather large conclusion that internet solicitation is what actually occured, in spite of the fact that the company emails “don’t suggest there was underage sex”. Since they are company emails, that also means that Sesame Workshop would have to make them available for any investigation, so my take on that is that they’re not attmepting to deceive with that statement.
        Clash’s accuser also hasn’t produced any proof of an underage affair, let alone one solicited over the net, which you’d think he would have if that were the medium. And the just-surfaced email in which Clash very conveniently acknowledges they had an affair when the accuser was underage seems to be very suspect.

        You need to clarify just what you mean by believing in the concept of innocent until proven guilty, “but never the actual crime of rape itself”, because that make no sense whatsoever. No one exactly “believes” in rape in and of itself, let alone as a “concept”.

        If Clash had sex with this man even a day before he was 17, he couldn’t legally consent, so that makes it statutory rape. Even if his accuser was very willing at that time, it would still be an illegal act because he wouldn’t be considered capable of making that decision. End of story. If his accuser is lying, I hope Clash can prove it and his life isn’t ruined. If his accuser was actually underage and was wronged, then I hope he gets justice and Clash pays the price.

        But for every Courtney Stodden Creepy Daddy setup, there are a lot of guys out there who now have a sexual offender jacket because they trusted some underage girl who swore she was legal. You’re stupid if you let your junk talk you into not checking a driver’s license, at the very least.

  4. FYou

    Yeah WTF is up with the white people hate? What has plastitits have to do with this? You’re *potentially* ok with a black guy having sex with a 16 year old but Sandusky is the devil? You liberals with your non functional logic…

    • Yes, because an authority figure raping at least one 12 year-old boy and possibly many others is indistinguishable from having consensual sex with a 16 year-old (which is, incidentally, the most common age of consent in the U.S.)

      Yeah, I know it’s a troll comment I’m replying to, but it gives me something to do while waiting for class to start.

      • AtomicMug

        Here, here. The difference is: If this “16 year old boy” or for that matter, a 12 YEAR OLD boy had had sex with a hottie like Madonna or Kim Kardashian, we’d be ENVIOUS of the boy, and he’d be celebrated. But because this happened with a gay man (and African-American to boot!) the HATERS are out in force!

        Go teabag someone, HATERS!

      • tomjenk

        Uh, no. You’re delusional. Most Americans will think a 52 year old man having sex with a 16 year old (boy or girl) is wrong, since there’s an inherent imbalance of power. And nobody would celebrate if Madonna had sex with a 12 year old. Get your head checked out. And please stay away from playgrounds and elementary schools.

      • Outside of sexual harassment in the workplace, there’s no law decreeing that relationships have to meet an acceptable “balance of power” standard. Good thing, too – since men generally have more earning power than women, that “imbalance of power” rule would apply to pretty much every straight marriage or relationship I know. The man didn’t work for Clash, so I think you’re the one who’s delusional here in insisting that their relationship has to meet that particular standard.

        Do your own head check. Playgrounds and elementary schools have got nothing to do with this, nor is Madonna having sex with a 12 year old germane – kids and 12 year olds can’t legally consent to sexual activity, which is the issue here. The age of consent is a legal standard and means just that – and regardless of how naive or wordly that newly-hatched consenting adult is, or what “most Americans” think, the decisions they make about who to have sex with are theirs to make, not yours. I know 52 year old people who make what I consider to be incredibly bad decisions regarding who they fuck, and 16 year olds who have no discrimination whatsoever, but it’s still their call. You don’t get to control what people do with their bodies when they’re of legal age, any more than you get to play nanny and follow them into the voting booth so that they don’t make a bad decision without your input.

    • There is a difference between a sixteen year old boy and a 12 year old boy, yes, but mostly the difference lies in the tiny little detail of EVIDENCE. The Sandusky evidence was overwhelming, whereas here there is no evidence so far that the guy was underage at the time. You are comparing apples and oranges to make a point, and it isn’t working.

    • Fyou, try reading (and understanding) what was written up there instead of knocking down straw men.

  8. SexJihaad

  9. The reason it’s a problem and the Courtney Stodden issue isn’t, is because Courtney is, more or less a woman.

    Gay sex must not be allowed into the minds of children, that’s how you make new gays. Didn’t they teach you that in Sunday school?

  10. Eddie Baby

    Does Doug Hutchinson work with kids?

  11. Incidentally, in New York (where I assume this stuff went down), marriage is a specific exemption from the laws on statutory rape. So, at least there, that’s why it’s cool for Hutchison.

    • I believe that’s the case in most states. The minimum marriageable ages in most states are lower than the age of consent. Of course, you usually need signed parental consent and sometimes also a judge’s OK to marry a 14-year-old.

  12. Johnny P!

    Kevin Clash’s career is ruined regardless of the outcome.
    If the allegations are proven true, he’ll have to face sentencing.
    If they’re proven false (most likely), the the little shit who no doubt was wined and dined and given concert tickets and had free vacations etc. etc. (when he was of legal age for consensual sex) needs to be identified. He needs to be ostracized and vilified by the gay community and society at large for being what he is: a usurious, gold-digging, bottom-feeding leech.
    Either way, Kevin Clash’s career is ruined.

    • AtomicMug

      His career is ruined because he’s African-American and gay, NOT because of anything he allegedly did. PERIOD.

      African-Americans and LGBT don’t stand a chance in this country.

      • marcus

        Yes its because he is an African American, that is why our country will never elected an African American president….(cricketts chirping) The prisons are filled with older men of all colors that used their age to prey on young kids. Dont give me your bs about age of consent, your mature enough for sex at 16 but not to drink? Hell you have to be 18 to fight for your country. As another post mentioned he should have sex with whomever he wants. If he was a teacher and he had sex with your 16 year old son that would be fine too?

  13. WTF? Never knew Elmo was Black and Gay, “Not that here’s anything wrong with that!”

    When I was younger I used to thing the stingray puppets etc were real people too!

  17. Wait, you’re telling me that this whole time, Elmo was just some guy?

  18. Sandusky likes puppets too.

    All jokes aside, just stop for a moment and think about how this may have affected the election had this story broke during the debates. Romney would have totally been able to stand on the podium and say, “I told you so” and solidified his stance on eliminating Public Television and may have possibly been able to sway moderate Democrats to vote in his favor. I’m not saying that Romney would have been a better option, just wondering aloud if anyone else finds it suspect that this came out AFTER the election?

    • Yeah, I’m sure it was THIS scandal and not the thing with Patraeus that would have brought Obama’s campaign to its knees.

      • Sandusky likes puppets too.

        That’s kinda what I’m wondering. Granted, we’re on a celebrity gossip site, but the vast majority of American voters would pay more attention to this story than to give importance to a story about questionable behavior by the man running the CIA.

    • Moderate democrats aren’t that stupid.

      • stan

        Don’t underestimate Americans.

      • Schmidtler

        4 years ago your candidate stated “If I do not cut the deficit in half in 4 years, I will not seek re-election, and if I do, you should not vote for me” – he proceeded to add mightily to the deficit instead of reducing it, you voted him into office again – shrewd indeed!
        All you’ve ‘won’ is 4 more years of policies which will drag our economy down even further, adding to the misery and poverty of all Americans – congratulations, smarties!

      • Yet another person who doesn’t understand the difference between “deficit” and “debt.” I love how people try to argue economics without understanding even the most fundamental facts on the subject…

    • achilles wrath

      Using this to justify ‘killing’ big bird would have been awesome to see.

    • Y’know, “Sandusky likes puppets,” I was actually on the verge of posting a “Sesame Workshop held this story back until after the election to keep Romney from winning!” joke rant before you posted this. But I decided: No, no, this is just too stupid and far-fetched, and after systematically shooting down all the bullshit last week, far be it from me to create more bullshit out of thin air.

      Thank you for reminding me that there is no limit to the wack-ass paranoia out there, and that next time I should just go with it. Because there’ll always be a contingent of people who will be ready to buy into this kind of stupidity, if they haven’t already come up with it themselves.

      • Sandusky likes puppets too.

        TomFrank, I’m a fan of some of the stuff you post on here. I never said, “Oh, this was a cover-up” and I’m the last person to jump onto the conspiracy bandwagon. I’m just wondering aloud if this, or the Patraeus story would have changed the outcome of the election had either or both been revealed before the 6th.

        OK, I just re-read my original post and it does sound a little conspiracy theory-ish. Wasn’t my intent at all, but just for the fun of it think if this news had been held back on purpose. If that were the case, I’d say the Democrats are finally playing the game the way the Republicans have forever.

      • Okay, Sand. Always good to know I have more fans out there.

  26. stan

    I’m all for pesumed innocence, and I’m ready to believe Clash and CTW on this story. But even if everything clash has said is true, isn’t it a little fcuked up for a man in his late 40′s/early 50′s to have sex with an 18-20 year old?
    And isn’t it REALLY fcuked up coming from the star of the world’s quintessential wholesome, educational children’s program? Shouldn’t he maybe get fired, at least?

    • Burt

      You need to watch “Meet the Feebles”.

    • 1) Not really, older people sleeping with younger people is hardly a new thing. Otherwise there’d be a lot of cougars with nothing to do.

      2) Not really, I’m fairly certain he’s not the only cast member of Sessme Street having sex.

      • stan

        1. I realize it might be common, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t messed up. If our most socially liberal congressman can’t send sext messages to a couple entertainers he met in vegas without being forced to resign, then this story should be pretty controvesial for the star of a children’s show.

        2. I seriously doubt anyone on the cast of Sesame Street is doing anything this freaky. And certainly (I hope) nobody as high profile as Elmo. This is for Springer, not PBS kids.

      • Burt

        Sounds like you’ve just realized that the United States is the most conservative (i.e. puritanical) society in the Western world. Comes down to this, the guy tried to cut a deal with his boss, when they saw through his BS, he got Sandusky’s victim’s lawyer to give the impression that Clash is guilty (people really are the impressionable). If he really felt victimized, he would have gone to the cops first.

      • stan

        I’m not a Puritan—or even a little conservative. I’m okay with this kind of thing (Clash’s version, not the accuser’s). I just think it’s trashy and fcuked up. Also, it’s not for kids. Sesame Street and Elmo and whoever plays Elmo are for kids. So maybe just kick this guy out of Sesame Street, is what I’m saying.

      • And, if Clash were talking about it on Sesame Street you might have a point. What he does in his personal life isn’t pertinent to his job.

        Because adults who happen to be children entertainers have to be infantile? Don’t be ridiculous. Have you ever seen the guy in interview? He’s a big black man with a baritone voice, not some red little furry puppet.

      • Stan actually has absolutely no way of knowing what anyone on the cast of Sesame Street does for sexual gratification. “freaky” or otherwise, because most consenting adults don’t actually share the nitty-grityy of what they do with other consenting adults, since it’s private and no one’s business. He’s obviously convinced that the only kind of sex that anyone at PBS should be having is vanilla, missionary-position-only, with the lights out, and then only to conceive more children to watch the show.

        P.S, Anyone who claims they’re not even a “little conservative” yet still has to type “fcuk” – is.

        Nah, I just didn’t want to get deleted. I rarely visit the comments, so I don’t know what constitutes a violation. But now that I’ve been called a “shithead” by Fish himself:

        Fuck. Fuckfuckity fuckfuckfuck. Fucked up like an old fucker fucking a teenager. Shitpissfuckcuntcocksuckermotherfuckertits. Happy?

        Kick him to the street for being gay in the entertainment industry…Brilliant, truly brilliant. You’d probably be the first to complain how movies and TV shows suck after that happens. No, the guy made up the story. It was blackmail. The story’s all over the media today.

    Just in time for the “Tickle My Penis, Elmo”.

  28. I… I really don’t care. In fact, I’m a little disappointed this didn’t break 2-3 years ago. My kids are too old to watch Sesame Street now… at least I could have had something to snicker about to myself instead of suffering in silence.

    wtf is Elmo even doing on an educational show for children? don’t kids already know how to talk wrong? any parents out there want there kids learning how to speak from Elmo? I’ve put up with all kinds of annoying shit because my kids liked it – teletubbies, power rangers, hello kitty – but I drew the line at Elmo – too fucking annoying for me to listen to that inane shit for more than a few seconds before I have to turn it the hell off.
    No matter how you slice it, when you work in a fairly high profile job on a children’s tv show which receives public funding, you will and should lose your job if you can’t resist the urge to put your 50+ year old dong in an underage boy’s ass.

    No surprise, he’s been fisting Elmo for years

    • Tron

      Thanks – that was funny. At least you know to keep the jokes “punchy”. Whats with all the novel writing going on? It’s boring and unfunny. They need to take this to YouTube. :P

    The story rings a couple of alarm bells: First he went to try to settle with his boss, who investigated and found nothing (Why didn’t he go see the cops, first?). Then he gets the same lawyers as Sandusky’s victims (as if to imply that Cash is guilty) and then sues (for what I can tell based on the information) his boss? Sorry, but this sounds to me like someone’s gunning for cash (pardon the pun).

    • Burt

      Darnit, his name is Clash, not Cash…Still, the way the ‘victim’ went about this leaves me very suspicious of his claims. You’d think a victim would call the cops, try to strike a deal with his employer…and then get those lawyers as if to imply he’s guilty after you’ve been shot down. He didn’t get a hand-out, so now he’s aiming to destroy Clash’s reputation as long as he doesn’t get an out of court settlement.

    This whole story is stupid. Even if the kid was 16 at the time (and I have my doubts) there was no abuse involved, and they were in a relationship for years. It sounds like a bitter ex-boyfriend trying to make trouble and maybe some cash.

    And isn’t this the same site that had Courtney “Oldest 16yo on Earth” Stodden running around with her supposedly underage cooze and titties hanging out? It’s only pedophilia if it’s a gay guy? Please.

  33. Burt

    Turns out the email “evidence” is an email that was sent two years ago when the guy is 21. Clash even apologizes for making him feel uncomfortable for having talked about sex around him…Not something you’d say if you’re already in a sexual relationship with someone. Heck, if you’re in a sexual relationship, your partner gets upset if you don’t talk about sex.

    The expression on Elmo’s face says it all.

  35. “da-da da da, da-da da da, homo’s world”

    elmo is not guiltyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  37. I cant believe they found a human whose nose is uglier then Elmos.
