What Has Happened to Elmo? Anti-Semitic Rants and Sex Tapes Hit the Web
What is the world coming to? On Sunday Elmo, a beloved children's icon from Sesame Street, was arrested for yelling curse words and delivering a loud anti-Semitic rant in the middle of Central Park in New York.
A man dressed in a furry red Elmo costume from head to foot decided he had had enough of being pushed around by cops who he claims were Jewish and were preventing him from making money off his business. He yelled, "If you start your own business in this city, Jews will harass you."
Obviously this man might not be all there, which became more apparent when he began recommending people read Henry Ford's 90 year old anti-Semitic pamphlets called "The International Jew." According to The Smoking Gun, after ranting for awhile the costumed man was escorted out of the park in an ambulance, but not before posing for a few photos, and was sent to the New York-Presbyterian hospital to undergo observation.
Making it worse is this all comes after Elmo and the Cookies Monster's sex tape leaked a few months ago. Which is posted below just in case you haven't seen it yet. It all makes you wonder which beloved children's cartoon will be the next to fall?
