Are you able to separate Kevin Clash and his current predicament from the 3 1/2 year old monster character?
I was talking to some mothers who were 'going to be upset' if they allowed the Elmo character to continue since the puppeteer was a 'bad influence' and planned to start removing Elmo from their home.... Really? Elmo's following is primarily under the age of 6 and (hopefully) have no idea what molestation or even a scandal is. I can't imagine very many kids under 6 understanding why Elmo is all of the sudden bad. After all what did Elmo do? Anyway- I just wondered how may others felt this way.
Though apparently enough because Sesame workshop is not sure how big Elmo's role will be in the following season until ratings come in.

That's ridiculous! Are these the same Moms who are always texting when their kids are playing on the playground? I'd laugh & say "wow, I wish I had the time that you had to bother with that!"

I am assuming that they don't want to be supportive of Kevin Clash, because he probably gets a cut on the money that comes in from Elmo.
