My childhood as I know it will never be the same. Apparently, Kevin Clash, the guy who voices the Sesame Street character Elmo, is under investigation for possibly hooking up with a teenage boy when he was 16 (the boy, not Kevin Clash..that'd just be impossible since Kevin is 45.)
To his credit, Kevin doesn't deny the hookup, but he said it definitely happened when the teenager was 18 and not 16.
If Kevin Clash was the guy who thought up the whole "Tickle Me Elmo" idea, I'm gonna vomit for at least the next 4 days. Ew.
