Clowns are showing up in random places. Like a lot of people, I’m not a fan of clowns. Even though a friend of mine trained as a professional clown and tried to set my mind at ease about the inherent creep factor, I still give clowns a wide berth. I hope to not encounter a clown outside of an organized event.
Regardless, clowns are people too. I’m not trying to be cheeky. Yes, clowns are creepy and after the way Stephen King immortalized Pennywise into our psyche, clowns can be scary. No one should attack or harm a clown unless that clown poses a physical threat. If the clown acts deranged like Pennywise or psychotic like that abomination from American Horror Story, call the authorities.
