Everyone who grew up in the last 30 or so years who had any kind of quality childhood watched Sesame Street when they were little. Many of those people, now adults, are shocked to learn that the voice of the show’s popular character Elmo has been accused of having a sexual relationship with a 16 year old boy, bringing a whole new meaning to the term ‘Tickle Me Elmo.’

The voice actor, named Kevin Clash, denies having any kind of sexual relationship with the unnamed accuser until he was an adult, saying that the relationship was between two consenting adult and that he is sad his accuser is trying to make it into something it was not. Clash has taken a leave of absence from the show.

Sesame Workshop, the group that is responsible for the show, in a statement, said that after a thorough investigation they did not see any evidence of any underage sexual conduct to be present.

Obviously everyone is hoping that these allegations are false. If not, I doubt anyone would want to tell anyone how to get to Sesame Street and, if they did, would probably advise whomever they were giving directions to to either travel there in a group or bring an adult.
