“Elmo I'm gonna be real I am at my f**king limit,” one person responded.

Let’s just say these responses will not tickle Elmo.

On Monday, the chipper Sesame Street character posted a simple and sincere message to his fans on X, formerly Twitter: “Elmo is just checking in! How is everybody doing?”

Considering that a man who started an insurrection is the Republican Party front-runner for US president, the state of the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict, a “loneliness epidemic” and that it’s only freaking January, people got a little too honest with the beloved character.

“Elmo each day the abyss we stare into grows a unique horror. One that was previously unfathomable in nature,” said author Hanif Abdurraqib.

“Our inevitable doom which once accelerated in years, or months, now accelerates in hours, even minutes. However I did have a good grapefruit earlier, thank you for asking,”.

Another person assured the Muppet fave that they were good, before asking him to “pls check on Nicki Minaj,” referring to her ongoing rap feud with Megan Thee Stallion.

However, the best response to Elmo’s post might’ve been from journalist Séamus Malekafzali, who succinctly wrote: “Elmo I’m gonna be real I am at my fucking limit.”
