Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash resigns after sexual allegations
Sesame Street’s longtime voice and puppeteer of Elmo, Kevin Clash, has resigned from the PBS children’s programme, after a second underage sexual relationship allegation was made against him.
Clash joined the cast of Sesame Street as a puppeteer in 1984, voicing different characters before eventually taking on the role of Elmo permanently.
Clash said in a statement, “Personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work Sesame Street is doing and I cannot allow it to go on any longer. I am deeply sorry to be leaving and am looking forward to resolving these personal matters privately.”
