Elmo Voice Kevin Clash Resigns From Sesame Street in Wake of New Lawsuit
This is gonna be a tough one to explain to your kids.
According to TMZ, Kevin Clash, who voices the popular character Elmo on Sesame Street, has resigned from that job. Why now? A new lawsuit just came out from a second accuser, who claims Kevin had sex with him when he was 15, and Kevin was 32.
Sesame Workshop didn’t step in after the previous undersage sex allegation, but this time they released a statement saying the controversy was a distraction, and Kevin concluded he "can no longer be effective in his job," so he resigned. "This is a sad day for Sesame Street."
He probably had some help from The Powers That Be in resigning, but yeah. Sad day on the Street.
