The voice of the Sesame Street puppet is responding to allegations that he had an inappropriate relationship with a teenager. For 27 years, Kevin Clash has been the voice behind Elmo, but now he's on leave from the children's show after a now-23-year-old man claimed he had a sexual relationship with Clash when the man was just 16 years old.
