Bitch Wil Wheaton responds to Larry David’s attack on Elmo: ‘Tone deaf a-hole’

Posted by

Two weeks ago, Elmo caused a stir when he inadvertently started an international conversation about mental health. Elmo tweeted, “How’s everyone doing?” It was a simple question that shocked everyone as many people responded to share their feelings, including celebrities, the Biden administration, and the rest of the Sesame Street gang. After that, Elmo and his father appear today’s show To talk about mental health. Things took a strange turn when Larry David took the stage to attack Elmo, later explaining that he did so because the beloved children’s character was talking about mental health. Instead of apologizing, he told Seth Meyers he would “do it again.” This was really immature and shy.

Actor Wil Wheaton also thought Larry’s behavior was disturbing. Will makes a Facebook post criticizing Larry’s actions, writing about how weak he is. In the post, he explained that Elmo is considered a baby. He also talked about being a survivor of childhood abuse himself and how important it is to have open conversations about mental health, especially one that comes from a safe place like Elmo.

“So I heard about Larry David attacking Elmo on Life Television, but didn’t watch it until now because I knew it would upset me,” Will began. “Oh my God, this is worse than I thought. After all, what is wrong with that man? Elmo is children’s best friend across generations. In the Sesame Street universe, Elmo is a kid who is currently putting mental health and caring for others in the spotlight.

“And Larry f–king David…did…that? And thought it was going to be… funny? What? What an ass. What stupid, self-centered, tone-deafness.”

“Full disclosure: All the time, when I was growing up, my dad would grab me by the shoulders and shake me while yelling in my face,” Wheaton shared in her lengthy post. “He strangled me more than once.”

Will added, “He was always out of control, always in a rage and always intimidating.” “I’m a 51-year-old man and my heart is pounding right now, remembering how I felt when I was a little boy who loved Grover the same way kids today love Elmo Are. I really want to know what was going on in her little mind, and why there was no voice or person who spoke up to stop her from expressing violence towards the children’s puppet who was there to talk to her. How his love and sympathy for people struggling with difficult situations. “Time matters and makes a difference.”

He added, “Elmo and his dad were there to talk about empathy, love, kindness and caring for each other.” “Larry David was there to promote the final (thank God, maybe he’s gone now) season of a television series. Like, read the room, d-khead. It’s not always about you being the center of attention. There are a lot of people that none of us would know about that were inspired by this, and this was the last little bit of motivation they needed to call or send an email to get it right,” Will said. “Elmo probably saved lives and relationships by starting that conversation.”

Some thought Will was too sensitive, while others appreciated that he talked about his trauma and stressed with it. Shame on those who made hate comments about her openness and willingness to speak about her past. I’m totally on Team Will here. Larry was smug about attacking a favorite children’s character on live television. And why? Because he was talking about mental health and Larry thought it was annoying. The other day, Kaiser mentioned that Elmo is a learning and educational tool. Well, now we know that Larry is just a straight up tool.
