Who in their right mind nominated this freaky fawker for an award??
Accused Underaged Sex Abuser Kevin Clash Nominated For Emmy Award
Disgraced puppeteer Kevin Clash, long-time voice of beloved “Sesame Street” muppet Elmo, could win another Daytime Emmy in June despite quitting the show under a cloud of allegations that he had sexual relations with underage boys.
In the Daytime Emmy nominations announced Wednesday, Clash was one of four contenders in the “performer in a children’s series” category.
Over the nearly three decades he has been the voice of the furry red Elmo, Clash has won 23 Daytime Emmys.
While he has denied all allegations of sex with underage boys, five of whom have come forward, Clash told the show producers in November that he was leaving because he didn’t want to be a “distraction.”
His competition for the statuette includes Elmo’s “Sesame Street” colleagues Papa Bear (Joey Mazzarino) and Cookie Monster (David Rudman).
Clash’s Emmy chase won’t be the only drama at the annual daytime awards, which will be telecast live June 16 on HLN.
This zesty-azz ninja walks away with a statue after all these young men have come forward claiming sex abuse at his hands then the folks the run the Emmys will have a LOT of ‘splainin’ to do!
