Petition to HBO, Sesame Street, Sesame Workshop, PBS , The Jim Henson Company, The Muppets Studio

Kevin Clash, please come back to "Sesame Street" as the puppeteer and voice of "Elmo".

Kevin Clash should return to Sesame Street as the puppeteer and voice of Elmo.  I miss him, especially his Elmo puppeteering and voice.  It has adored my childhood.  Back then on November 20th, 2012, he resigned after those false accusations!  And then, 2 years later, in April and June of 2014, those false accusations have been then thrown out, cleared and dismissed for Kevin Clash, meaning that his personal life has now been restored and well-respected.  And those accusers had to go ahead and go after him, frame him, set him up, and ruin his life!  And also, those accusers also had to go ahead and ruin my childhood!  I loved Kevin Clash's documentary movie Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey, released back then in 2011, 1 year before he resigned, and it was such an AWESOME feel-good documentary movie! I am still angry and upset about what happened to Kevin Clash back then on November 20th, 2012, and I am still feeling that way EVER since after that time!  And I was also against it, too, when this happened to Kevin Clash, and I am also still against it, too, also EVER since after that time, too!  And that is why I am going to keep on protesting, and I am NOT planning on ending the protest anytime soon!  And as to when it will end, this protest will end when Kevin Clash comes back to Sesame Street as the puppeteer and voice of Elmo! So hopefully, once again, Kevin Clash should return to Sesame Street as the puppeteer and voice of Elmo, because, once again, like I said before, I miss him, especially his Elmo puppeteering and voice, and it has adored my childhood. If you agree and are with me, please sign this petition.  Thank you. P.S. Also, please check out my Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/comebackkevinclash/

Petition to Ryan Murphy

Remove Lena Dunham from AHS Season 7

The wildly popular American Horror Story recently announced it's teaming up with Golden Globe winner Lena Dunham. This seems all well and good until we delve into Ms. Dunham's history. In her tell-all book titled Not That Kind of Girl, it seems she may be that kind of girl after all. Lena Dunham is a sexual predator. In her book, she has described her as doing "basically, anything a sexual predator might do to woo a small suburban girl" to try to get her sister to kiss her. She literally says, "As she grew, I took to bribing her for her time and affection: one dollar in quarters if I could do her makeup like a 'motorcycle chick.' Three pieces of candy if I could kiss her on the lips for five seconds. Whatever she wanted to watch on TV if she would just 'relax on me.'" Also, Dunham's "curiosity got the best of" her when, one day as she and her sister were playing in their homes driveway, "leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina." This is not normal behavior. Yes, children explore their own bodies as well as their friends, yet for someone remembering explicitly bribing your younger sister for affection shows a more serious issue. This is sexual abuse and Ms. Dunham is the abuser. The passages in Ms. Dunham's book are beyond unsettling, yet there is more to Ms. Dunham than her book alone. Ms. Dunham has previously been unable to keep her sisters sexuality a secret by outing her to her parents, naturally causing a strain on their relationship. She monetizes the entertainment value of rape. She has and seems to jump to conclusions concerning the intentions of famous black men, such as Odell Beckham Jr. and Drake. She also wishes she had an abortion, treating it like a gift. She ignores the heartbreak of the thousands who have endured an abortion. Possibly worst of all, she repeats her same mistakes over and over again. She does not learn from her mistakes concerning her casual Islamaphobia, racism, and anti-Semitism. In conclusion, we are asking AHS creator and producer Ryan Murphy as well as the directorial team to drop Lena Dunham from the upcoming season. It is time that we no longer give people like Lena Dunham the platform, air time, and voice she thinks she deserves.

Make new Beatle movie about John and Cynthia Lennon

There are some stories that are left untold. Some are forgotten, while others are ignored. In the case of Cynthia Lennon, her story has always been pushed to the side. For years, fans of Cynthia have wanted and waited for her story to be given the attention it deserves. For too long have her fans waited. Until now. The often under appreciated 1st wife of John Lennon was an amazing and brave human being. She experienced one of the greatest privileges: to be a firsthand eyewitness to the birth of the greatest rock n' roll band ever. For 10 years, she was the loving and loyal girlfriend/wife to the most beloved Beatle. She new him before he was a famous rockstar, and was close friends with the other Beatles during their Liverpool days. Although Yoko Ono is often seen as the important wife of John Lennon, Cynthia's role in John's life was just as important, perhaps more. She was his first love, the mother of his eldest son (Julian Lennon), and was close to every member of the band. She was there when they first formed. She was there when they made it big in America. She was there when St. Pepper was created. And it was her tragic breakup with John that lead to the creation of one of the bands most amazing hits, "Hey Jude".  In her autobiographical book, "John", Cynthia highlights pivotal events that happened in John's life, and allows us to see another side to the legendary musician. Unlike other writers, who only knew one side of John, Cynthia knew him better than anyone. In her book, we see both sides to the legend. He was a brilliant musician, but also a broken soul. He had a capacity to love, but also a capacity to hurt others deeply. Yet despite all the suffering she endured by his side, Cynthia never stopped loving John, even after their divorce and his eventual death. Her love for him surpassed whatever anger and hatred she could ever hold against him. This petition is to help make a dream become a reality. Many Cynthia Lennon fans (including myself) have wanted to see her story on the big screen. Many Beatle fans have waited for a proper movie about the beloved Liverpool band. By signing this petition, we can promote and make possible the chance for such a movie to exist. The Beatles are such an important part of culture and music, yet they've never been given a proper film that shows their impact. Cynthia's book is the perfect catalyst for such a movie.  My goal for this petition is to reach as many signatures as possible, and then send this petition into the hands of Julian Lennon, John and Cynthia Lennon's son. More than any other person, Julian has loved and honored his mother for her strength and devotion. To see that so many fans want his mother's story to be told would be very touching for him, and there is no other person who could make this dream a reality more than Julian.  Cynthia's story shares a message that The Beatles sang throughout their career: all you need is love. In her life, Cynthia loved John and she loved her son. Her love is what allowed her to see some of the most amazing events in music history, and her love gave her the strength to continue on with or without her husband. Her love was constant and unconditional, and it reflects the peace that John Lennon always shared to his fans. Please help spread that message of love, and help make Cynthia's story become more than a dream. Thank you!
