The puppeteer resigned from his position with “Sesame Street” about two weeks ago, following the reputation crushing allegations of having sexual relations with two underage partners. Another alleged victim recently came forward as well.
Now the man is going to have a hard time finding work.
Warner Bros. Pictures just cut all ties with Clash in the midst of developing a feature film that would include Clash’s expertise.

It was actually supposed to be a pretty big deal for the company since Clash is something like a children’s entertainment specialist and the hope that the project would eventually take on a life of its own.
Now he’s out of the picture.
One insider familiar with the project said that with the trio of unresolved allegations hanging over Clash’s head, it was unlikely that any outfit in town would be interested.
