Elmo, the beloved Sesame Street character, has an impersonator, and he’s anti-Semitic.  It wasn’t the first time a man wearing an Elmo costume was caught spewing anti-Semitic slurs inside Manhattan’s Central Park, but it happened again on Sunday.

After being kicked out of the Central Park Zoo, park-goers – including those who took to Twitter to discuss the matter – witnessed the Elmo impersonator yelling obscenities and anti-Semitic remarks.

Authorities took the Elmo wannabe into an ambulance once they were alerted to the disturbance.

A video posted on YouTube nearly a week before Sunday’s incident, which can be seen below, shows Elmo in Central Park disseminating his anti-Semitic views.

    God hid Moses, even hid Jesus Christ because man hates truth (John 1:17). The world receives blessings, and favor from God but every soul who found even (Luke 19:32) in the Bible was saved by the grace of God his gift. King David proclaimed his grace but hid it from the world and Jonathan. *1st Samuel 20:5 but let me go, that I may hide myself in the field unto the third day at even.

    If this person are as crazy why hid behind the Elmo costume???

    • Mentally Ill Too!

      Mentally ill does NOT usually equate with stupid. It makes sense to wear the costume to attract attention, or to hide the perpetrator’s identity.
