Ok. Now I’m pissed. So a documentary comes out about Kevin Clash, and all of a sudden some guy comes out and says that Kevin had sex with him when he was 16 years old. Shortly thereafter the anonymous person withdraws the claim and says he was of age when it happened. Now there is another person that comes out and says that he had sex while underage with Clash 10 years ago.
Seriously? Either Elmo’s puppeteer is one sick puppy, or these people smell money and want in on the action. I don’t know what the deal is, but I don’t like it. All this man has worked for has now been ruined. He resigned from Sesame Street, and he’s pretty much done. I mean who’d trust him around kids? So what happens now?
Look, if he is guilty, then he should pay, but what if he’s innocent? What about these people making accusations? What if they are lying? How many times has someone used this type of method for financial or criminal gain only to be proven as liars. What happens to that guy that recanted his claim? If he recanted it, then that means he was lying about what happened right? But then the damage is done, what punishment do people like that get?
The reason I’m irritated is because it all seems too coincidental. With the release of the netflix video, and his recent exposure, out come the accusations? Really? That’s not to say it’s not true, I don’t know, any more than you do. But I can’t help but be a little suspicious.
