It is now ok to tickle your Elmo's again
. You will no longer hear jokes like, “Show me on this Elmo doll where Elmo touched you.” The man who had accused the voice of Elmo of having underage sex, now says the sex was when he was of legal age and that it was consensual. That does not change the fact that it is creepy that a man approaching 50 was into an 18 year old. It does suck that Kevin Clash had to go through all of this and I hope that the guy who accused him suffers some type of consequences. Kevin had taken a leave of absence from the show. Is the show going to let him back on the air? Are we going to read something six months from now that said Kevin never was allowed back or that the show has gone in a different direction. One more Grover friendly? Cookie Monster conspiracy?
