Anti-Semitic Elmo Removed from Central Park

Anti-Semitic Elmo Removed from Central Park

Prepare to kiss your childhood goodbye. A deranged man in an Elmo suit was carted out of Central Park in an ambulance Sunday after a venomous, anti-Semitic rant at the Zoo. The man got the boot from the Zoo for harassing people, then took his tirade to the park. As Gothamist noted, people seemed to be more intrigued than disturbed.

Strangely enough, this was not the first Angry Elmo incident. He was spotted going off in April and May, and below is another hateful, anti-Semitic rant from just last week. This guy has to be deeply disturbed to get this deranged in public while dressed as an iconic figure for children. Then again, he succeeded in getting our attention, and definitely helped kids learn their A,B,Cs—and a few other words.
