Poor Elmo, he gets no respect.
Recently, Jeramie Trespalacios was attacked in a music store while wearing his full Elmo costume. He had been performing for children, and after work he did a little shopping, while still in costume.
Apparently another customer hates Elmo, and started punching him. Elmo managed to throw him into a glass display case and knock the attacker unconscious!
With his attacker unconscious on the floor, Trespalacios said he began to think about what the customers thought of the bizarre brawl.
“It looks good for the kids, though. Elmo is kicking butt, keeping society good!” he said with a laugh.
