Racist ‘Elmo’ Gets Dragged Off By NYC Cops

Everyone loves Elmo, right? He’s cute, fury and extremely affable. Elmo is a one fantastic Muppet, unless you happen to be talking about the nasty Elmo impersonator in New York City who, until recently, had been hurling racial abuses at pedestrians and other fellow Elmo impersonators.

The man in question, after donning his giant red Elmo suit, would berate the public with anti-Semitic rhetoric and anti-immigration rants. Apparently he was already well known to the other impersonators in downtown Manhattan plying their craft. When New Yorkers and tourists alike wanted to have their photos taken with one of the ‘nice’ Elmos near Times Square, or in Central Park, the ‘anti-Elmo’ would often show up and berate people with his offensive remarks, while accusing the other Elmos of being illegal immigrants.

Well, enough was enough. On Monday, Police carted the potty-mouthed Elmo off. The man, whose name has been withheld, wasn’t arrested for his offensive statements. Rather, he was taken to Metropolitan Hospital Center for a mental evaluation.

It’s a good thing he didn’t go to jail. The other inmates would want to do a lot more than just tickle him.
