Sesame Street’s Elmo Creates Anti-Semitic Disturbance in NYC


sesame-streetAn angry, “emotionally disturbed” Elmo impostor known to harass innocent New Yorkers in high-trafficked tourist spots is at it again, this time pestering visitors at the Central Park Zoo.

The evil Elmo was spotted screaming obscenities while the NYPD carried the impostor out in an ambulance on Sunday.

In 2009, he was caught hassling tourists strolling along in Times Square demanding they take pictures with him for cash. When refused, the impostor cursed them out. His rude behavior resurfaced in 2010.

Elmo-gone bad has defended his actions saying we New Yorkers just don’t understand, “I’m not being rude. Taking an Elmo picture without paying is rude. It’s called making a living.”

Videos of the incident began to circulate Sunday and show him instructing bystanders to read “The International Jew” by Henry Ford, the automobile manufacturer who was known for his anti-Semitic views.

“I’m not making money because the Jewish costume company is harassing me,” said the man. “That’s why I’m doing it and that’s why I want people to read ‘The International Jew,’ because if you start your business in this city, Jews will harass you.” The man also complained that he wasn’t making any money because of “Jewish cops and company.”
