Cursing Elmo hits San Francisco parks


A guy in an Elmo is going around shouting obscenities. In a park he swore at kids and mothers, who wanted the guy arrested. But police say it's free speech.

"Kids are just lured in and tricked and the parents follow their children and then there's the onslaught of the obscenities which I think is terrible." said parent Jennifer Longaway.

"The thought that somebody could be using something so innocent and also having such kind of a devious idea to do that," said another parent Marla Kadlecek. "I mean it's, it's gross."

Another evil Elmo was first spotted in New York first, cursing to people and families walking by.
