Yesterday, it came to light that Kevin Clash, the Sesame Street muppet captain who’s played Elmo for nearly thirty years, was accused of having a relationship with a sixteen-year-old. Clash admits to a prior relationship with the accuser, but insists it was consensual, and when the accuser was of age. He is taking a brief leave of absence from Sesame Street to deal with the accusations. Mark Sussman, a puppeteer and professor at Concordia University in Montreal, explains the impact of the accusations.
