Elmo actor Kevin Clash resigns; new accuser files suit - and now a 3rd.

Elmo actor Kevin Clash resigns; new accuser files suit.

I didn't really follow it the first time around. I guess it was time for he and Sesame Street to squash the negative publicity.

I wonder if it's legitimate or just someone else out looking to wreak havoc.

What do you think this will mean for the character? Just replace him, or discontinue his presence all together.

Depressing for the character Elmo. My kids loved him.

So sad. I hope they can find someone else to be Elmo; he's such a huge part of Sesame Street.

Yeah, but doesn't he own the rights to Elmo?

I don't see why he would.

I'm always a little skeptical of single accusations against celebrities but, much like good old MJ, once any type of payoff is made I instantly believe the accuser.

No way would anyone who is innocent of molesting children pay to make it go away, not even if it is cheaper than fighting it. No one will ever convince me otherwise.

I figure they will replace him too unless more people come forward and the characters image is tainted.

I read in an article that Kevin Clash had already suggested replacements and they have already filled in for him. He was so talented. What a fool.

I loathe Elmo. It is because of him that we do not watch Sesame Street in this house. We get the DVDs and will watch various clips, but none with Elmo. Now Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, and the Count are the bee's knees.

I vote that they send Elmo away with his perverted puppeteer.

This is a sad situation all around, but I totally agree -- never liked Elmo, or the way he basically took over Sesame Street, pushing all the other (better) characters aside.

I dont necessarily think that someone like MJ is guilty just because he paid off the accuser. Think about it from MJ's side, even if you are innocent, why go thru a lengthy trial and spend all that money on legal fee's if the accuser agree's to a financial settlement? If that is an option, then why not go that route. In the end, even if MJ is found not guilty, people will judge him and state their opinions about the case no matter what.

There is something about Elmo that kids. Elmo even has more stuff in Sesame Place than Big Bird. He's on their water tower, has he own section, he has a show. He certainly is their cash cow.

Sorry, I don't buy it. No one walking the Earth will ever be able to convince me that someone falsely accused of molesting a child would payout to avoid their day in court. I'd bankrupt myself before I did such a thing.
