 Poor Elmo is caught in this scandal because of Kevin Clash, the guy who voices him!

Clash, who's been the voice behind the most loved children's character of all time for over 27 years, is being accused of having sex with a 16 year old boy when he was 45. Clash denies the allegations and says there was no kind of underage activity going on, but he does confirm the two had a relationship.

In a recent statement he said, "It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to characterize it as something other than what it was," Clash also confirmed that he is a gay man saying, "I've never been ashamed of this or tried to hide it, but felt [my relationship with the accuser] was a personal and private matter." He's since taken a leave of absence from Sesame Street to fight the accusations against him.

For those of us who've been Elmo fans since forever, it never even crossed our minds that Elmo could be gay. But when we did some research and dug a little more, we've come to realize that there were some questionable things about the red furry monster and the clues were right in front of faces.

But it doesn’t matter to me, gay or not, I still love Elmo. He’s just so damn cute! LOL.
