Kevin Clash’s accuser changed his tune, and I’m SOOO HAPPY ABOUT THIS NEWS! The accuser is now claiming that he and Kevin had an “adult consensual relationship.” Kevin said, ”I am relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest. I will not discuss it further.”
And the Sesame Street Workshop released this statement on their blog:
I’m so pissed at the accuser for trying to tarnish Kevin’s reputation. People are scum bags. Who knows if the accuser was underage when they dated or not, but either way it was consensual and all of this negative press was not necessary. I wonder if Sesame Street paid for him to go away and to keep his mouth shut? Either way, it’s clear that he just wanted money and press otherwise, this wouldn’t be resolved so quickly. Elmo lives!
**UPDATE** Here’s his accuser–I side with Kevin on this one.
