Sesame Street star Elmo has found himself at the centre of a trauma-dump after asking fans how they’ve been feeling.

This week the Muppet puppet, who first appeared on the long-running children’s series in 1980, took to social media to check in on his 501,000 followers.

‘Elmo is just checking in! How is everybody doing?’ he posted on X.

However, while he likely expected some excitable replies, many people opened up about how they were really going, with many sharing that ‘life is hard’.

‘Elmo we are tired,’ user Maeroe admitted.

‘The world is burning around us, Elmo,’ YouTuber Steven McInerney shared.

‘Elmo I’m suffering from existential dread over here,’ David Leavitt added.

Meanwhile user King Ether wrote: ‘Elmo I shouldn’t have rushed wanting to be an adult. I need a break big guy.’

Celebrities such as actress Rachel Zegler joined in, saying she was “resisting the urge to tell Elmo that I am kinda sad”.

Many others also expressed their shock at the ‘trauma dump’ the beloved puppet had been subjected to, suggesting Elmo likely had no clue what he was in for when posing the question.

Despite many people not being overly positive, some did share they were feeling optimistic.

‘Honestly, I’m in a really good place rn,’ Chance the Rapper replied.

However, the thousands of dark replies later spurred the official Sesame Street account to share a message directing people toward mental health resources.

‘Thank you, Elmo, for checking in with a reminder for us to pause and take a mindful moment to focus on how we’re feeling,’ it shared, alongside a link to support services.

In a follow-up, Elmo also said he was ‘glad’ he asked how everyone was going.

‘Elmo learned that it is important to ask a friend how they are doing. Elmo will check in again soon, friends!  Elmo loves you. #EmotionalWellBeing,’ his post read.

Other Sesame Street characters also spoke up to throw their support behind those who needed it.

‘Me here to talk it out whenever you want. Me will also supply cookies,’ the Cookie Monster wrote.

Ernie’s best friend Bert added: ‘I’m here if you ever need a shoulder to lean on. I’ll make us both a warm cup of tea.’

Sesame Street is streaming on Prime Video.
