Kevin Clash, voice of the hugely popular Elmo on Sesame Street, has been given a leave of absence for what producers of the show call ‘exercising poor judgement.’


A 23 year old man contacted the Sesame Street Workshop to say he had been in a relationship with Clash that started when he was 16.


While the producers are satisfied that is unfounded and the real relationship didn’t start until the young man was 17 which is the legal age of consent in New York they do say Clash violated company policy regarding internet usage.


Clash is reportedly also taking this time to ‘take action to protect his reputation.’


Don’t fret though, the producers say Elmo is, ‘bigger than any one person’ and would ‘continue to be an integral part of Sesame Street.’


Auditions are already being held and current front runners are William Shatner, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Al Pacino… Oooh Ahhhh.

      Sadly, yes. If I were to do a fake Elmo story it wouldn’t be a gay one as we know Bert and Ernie have gotten that rap since the 80’s. OF course the last line was my joke of the possible replacements but the rest of the story stands pretty funny on it’s own, as hollywood usually does.
