People on here and other places are showing support because they don't believe that the things that are being said are true. They are looking at where the story first broke out and take it for a grain of salt.Also as much as I admire Kevin's talent, I don't see how people on here are able to look past what he's done. Having a relationship with 15 and 16 year old teenagers? This isn't a matter of his personal life it's a matter of breaking the law and taking advantage of kids. The idea that someone who does such great things for charities and for children would then take advantage of them makes lose a great deal of respect for him. No one can tell me that a 16 year old is old enough to understand and have a relationship with a man in their 40s. Male or female I don't care. If this scandal was just about Kevin Clash being gay I would be on his side 100% but its not.
I honestly do not think Kevin intended to hurt anyone or do anything wrong. I honestly think that he cared about those with which he had a relationship. I also think that's the main problem. He didn't think it was wrong. There are now 2 allegations. Kevin has resigned which to me says he wants to end this before more people come forward. It's a terrible thing that has happened here but sadly Kevin brought it on himself. I will miss him as a performer greatly.
It's very hard to think about any of the Muppet prefromers doing anything that is not above the law, but this story has come out and we want to make sure what is truth or not. A Lot of us still think that this is something that could not be true, but if it is we want it to be found in the right way through a court of law.
"innocent until proven Guilty" has been said through out this thread, and that what most people want to see due proses. We don't to to be judge jury and executioner, and let the Lawyers and Kevin have there say in court if needed.
