On Monday, news broke that an unnamed 24-year-old man had accused Kevin Clash, who is the creator and puppeteer of Elmo on 'Sesame Street,' of engaging in a sexual relationship with him when he was 16. Today, that man has recanted his allegations.
Apparently the voice of Elmo liked sticking his hand up more things than just a puppet! Kevin Clash, puppet master and voice of Elmo is taking a leave of absence from Sesame Street after being accused of having sex with a minor.
Here's one more point against Mitt Romney -- the streets this Halloween are going to be flooded with women in "sexy" Big Bird costumes, thanks to his comments at the recent presidential debate.
Mitt Romney can't just say he's going to put Big Bird out of a job and get away with it. Here are the best memes so far from the Great 2012 Big Bird Backlash that don't have curse words. Because in the mind of the internet, when Big Bird gets angry he grabs a rifle and starts spewing obscenities.
