Drama continues for Kevin Clash, the man who created Sesame Street’s ‘Elmo’. Yesterday, we learned news of a second accuser that has come forward. Here’s what we know: He’s a 24-year-old college student named Cecil Singleton, claiming that Clash had engaged in sexual behavior with him when he was 15.

Singleton’s lawyer, Jeff Herman, said he has been contacted by two other potential victims of Clash and expects additional legal action. At a news conference Tuesday, Singleton said he and Clash met on a gay chat line and then, for a two-week period, they engaged in sexual contact, though not intercourse. (Sex with a person under 17 is a felony in New York if the perpetrator is 21 or older). Singleton said he didn’t know Clash’s profession until years later, when he Googled the man’s name. He is suing Clash for $5 million. Meanwhile, my biggest question (which may be inappropriate) is –What’s gonna happen to Elmo? On Tuesday, Hasbro issued a statement saying

“We are confident that Elmo will remain an integral part of Sesame Street and that Sesame Street toys will continue to delight children for years to come.”

What do you think of this entire case? And can Elmo’s character bounce back from all of the negative press associated with this situation?  [AP]

    It’s crazy how when one comes forward SOOOOO MANY come forward. Like dude, why are you coming forward now? Ugh. Makes me mad. Money hungry heffas

  2. m&m says:

    people jump in, bc they feel strength is in numbers and its more believable. He’s a voice, so I think he will be able to withstand the bad press and keep his job. Now, if he was a news personality where his face was shown often, that might be a different story.
