Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash insisted that the sexual relations he had with his accuser was "between two consenting adults" -- and that seems to be the case as the man has now recanted his accusations. The man, who has not identified himself, described his sexual relationship with Clash as "adult" and "consensual" on Tuesday, which was much different than when the story first broke and he claimed he was only 16 years old.

Clash has since responded with a statement of his own, saying he is "relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest." Do you think the accuser just wanted some cash from the whole ordeal?

    Now throw this into the countless thousands of claims that aren't recanted and how many people's lives are ruined because of it.

    If people want to make allegations, better be able to back it up, other wise I think they should face the same penalty as those they accuse.

    Most likely this was the case. This same stunt was tried with Micheal Jackson after he settled out of court on a similar accusal. He fought it and it turned out that the accusal was just an attempt to get money. That delayed and/or stopped future claims as they would have to work even harder to prove something actually happened.

    It's easy money because the person who gets those allegations on one famous person means easy $$$$$ hence that person paying them to drop the law suite.

    Nauseating. This is an insult to all the victims of child sexual abuse.

    I think so. I don't know why else he would say something like that, then recant.
  • rbeas 2012/11/18 14:22:29
    I have no idea his motivation, I just hope he gets help.

    I watched a documentary about Kevin Clash and would doubt such allegations in a heartbeat.

    Calling sex gross is calling your sexual body sexual gross. Do you realize that? Do you think like the religious people against Jesus or do you think like the minding his own business Jesus. Just two choices, One or the other.

    No biblical law supports your accusations or assumptions. They are your personal opinion. People are being pharisaical against people who have whatever kind of sex seeing whatever kind of sex not seeing the nude body that has whatever kind of sex. You buddy boy lady whatever are at war. Legal is oppressive being believe it or not what sodomistic really is. Isaiah 1 :17, KJV. That verse is talking to you.

    It says what they should be doing but are not doing.
    Isaiah 1 >>17Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
    King James Version
    The gay, zoosexual ,Pedo as they are called to give guilt are not oppressing anyone, but people are sure as thunder are oppressing them, and the, furries of the furry fandom having the humble heart of a child. People are making their nude art bad by hiding it making all of it bad. Clothing optional humans, and countless others that are thrust into the legal system.

    it is a natural feeling. Society lets itself be controlled by fear. Fear causes war. War is being waged against this puppeteer. Devils fear. Devils have a dead soul constantly worrying every second about judgment day not knowing when it will occur. When it does it will be the end of them, and all things as we know them.

    First part is OK. God in us judges themselves. How in the love of pete can getting into a relationship be a sin? Mad men are making laws. Those not being like Jesus is sins. Can you endure sound doctrine? KJV, 1 Thessalonians 4:11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business. Philippians 2: 3Let´╗┐ nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other´╗┐ better than themselves.
    The body that dies seeing Gods glory as hell is in sin. Don't be like Jesus is condemning a person sin against your own soul.

    16 is still the age of consent in most states. It's legal. If you truly had a relationship with someone why wait all these years and then try and taint their name and reputation? Clearly he wanted money to go away.

    I think they wanted to ruin that man's life.
  • joshBigBoss 2012/11/17 21:54:42
    I'm not saying he was lying. Just that he wanted hush money. Just like he wanted to be lovers with Elmo in the first place. I bet Clash was talking to him in the Elmo voice while they had their tryst...
  • mike j 2012/11/17 18:27:47

    This is a very , very tragic story. Mr Clash will never for the rest of his life ever live down the stigma of such an accusation that was falsly brought upon him. The person that did this should be arrested and stripped of his American citizenship and set adrift in the Persian Gulf. Then God can deal with his sorry soul.

    A desperate act by a jilted lover most likely.
