i don’t know what this has to do with the case,
but i guess this is evidence…
Just two days before he laid the legal smack down on Elmo voice actor Kevin Clash — claiming Clash sexually abused him as a teenager — Cecil Singleton laid the smack down on STAGE … dropping it like it’s hot at a NYC drag show … and we got the video.
wasn’t he mentally distraught?
or was that the other one?
i can’t keep up with all the bullshit anymore.
he also had more to say in an interview:
“It was like, bam!” Singleton told The Daily Beast. “It just hit me. I Googled it and it really blew me away. It made me kind of sick to my stomach. I immediately felt that it was probably necessary for me to come forward. It felt like it was the right thing to do.”
This time, there was no retraction, and Clash quickly resigned from Sesame Street.
“At the time, I didn’t know that Sheldon Stephens had gotten paid or any of that,” Singleton said. “When I heard it on the news, I felt intuitively that he was telling the truth. I felt I had a strong responsibility considering my lack of judgment and how inappropriate my relationship was. I had to come forward, even if I wasn’t taken seriously, even if no one believed me.”
Singleton, who grew up in upper Harlem and had just spent two years in foster care when he first met Clash, said he met the puppeteer not at a fancy industry party, but on a gay phone-chat line. Singleton called in March 2004 and created his introduction profile. Clash pushed a button, he said, indicating he wanted to speak to him.
“Back then, the Internet was not as popular as it is today,” Singleton said. “I’ve always been very androgynous and openly gay. Living in this urban neighborhood in uptown Harlem, it wasn’t exactly an ideal place to meet someone. I was the only out gay student in my high school’s history. It wasn’t a recipe for meeting people romantically.”
how did this mentally fuck up these people?
they were willing to do whatever.
what is the lawsuits for?
maybe i have missed the point?
maybe i’m lost when they start talking in these interviews?
i don’t trust none of em.
