buzzfeed:

BREAKING: Kevin Clash, the longtime Elmo puppeteer, has resigned from “Sesame Street.” 

"Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding Kevin’s personal life has become a distraction that none of us want, and he has concluded that he can no longer be effective in his job and has resigned from Sesame Street.” This is such a bummer on multiple fronts.

"I WORK FOR JOHN GOTTI. F@*! YOU!"  Someone has been dressing up as Elmo and doing their best to offend anybody in their vicinity at Central Park recently — in some cases, using anti-Semitic language. Over the weekend, things got so bad that someone in an Elmo suit left on stretcher. (Key line from the article: “Sesame Street representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”) You know, compared to this, Leslie Knope's raccoon problem doesn't seem like that big of a deal. What do you think? (note: strong language in the video) source

EDIT:  Bloomberg’s Jake Beckman points out this Wall Street Journal article that offers some context on what might be happening here.

Can’t believe we missed this: On Friday, Rupert Murdoch was in San Francisco talking about education when he got interrupted by … Elmo and the Count. Occupy Sesame Street is a real thing, apparently. Murdoch’s response is classic, actually: “It’s OK. A little controversy makes everything more interesting.”
