Update: 12/11/12 4:47 p.m. So Kevin Clash has not only lost his job at Sesame Street, facing four underage sexual molestation charges, but now on top of that is being accused of having a limp dick by the latest alleged victim.
The accuser, now a 33-year-old man, ran away from his family in Miami when he was 16 to live with Clash. He revealed in his lawsuit (obtained in part by The New York Post), that “Kevin Clash told [his accuser] he had difficulty…due to a medical condition.” It’s like this Clash’s life cannot get any worse at this point. Except:
Sesame Street Sex Scandal
It was only last Monday (though it feels like forever ago) that 23-year-old Sheldon Stephens accused the voice of Elmo, Kevin Clash, of starting an inappropriate relationship with Mr. Stephens when he was 16-year-old. And while we thought all that ugliness was behind us after Stephens retracted his allegations and took a $125,000 out-of-court settlement, he is now rescinding his recant, claiming that he was “pressured” to drop the case.
After yesterday’s news that Kevin Clash, the voice of Elmo on Sesame Street for the last 28 years, had officially taken a “leave of absence” at the PBS show after a man came forward and accused Mr. Clash of innapropriate relations when he was 16-years-old, it was only a matter of time before the evidence started piling up. Though Mr. Clash claimed that the relationship between himself and the now-23-year-old young man began only after the boy turned 18, a letter that TMZ was given by the accuser showed genuine remorse on Mr. Clash’s part.
Occupy Wall Street
Ugh, women. Can’t they go five minutes without ruining a rally against corporate greed with their claims of inter-protest misogyny, objectification, and rape?
When filmmaker Steven Greenstreet created his Tumblr Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street in mid-October, he was attempting to show “the sexy side of protesting.” Unsurprisingly, his site was only up for a day before feminist blogs tore into the “creepy voyeur” for what they perceived as a sexist objectification of women – many of whom were photographed apparently without their knowledge or consent.
Back in 2004 Julian Assange, then 33, chatted up a 19-year-old student, Elizabeth (not her real name) at the University of Melbourne. He charmed her, then walked her home and kissed her.
Over the next few days he pursued her, and Gawker’s Adrian Chen has the exclusive, detailing Assange’s increasingly stalkerish e-pistles.
