This never happened til Trump came around. Just sayin'.

People are saying Trump is actually half-clown. I think he needs to produce his birth certificate. Me, I'm not saying it, but people are saying it, I'm just pointing out what people are saying.

Personally, I don't think he's half clown, only half orangutan.

Clowns are creepy. That's what make them so cool.

Good advertising for Stephen King for sure, and I'm sure this all started as wierd fun for someone, but the whole hysteria is a bit much. But if you want to see REALLY creepy clowns watch American Horror Story season 4 ("Freak Show") -- not that great, on the whole, but some very freaky imagery for sure.

I imagine this is some kind of political movement, suggesting that anyone with covered faces can appear scary or threatening and freak people out, even when they aren't at all harmful? Odd behaviour.

Gacy used to dress as a clown and entertain children at parties.

,,,, officials in California and Oregon forced to respond to numerous clown sightings

Cops actually respond to this nonsense? Jesus. There's nothing illegal about dressing like a clown.

If the clown has a weapon or is accosting people then it's time for the cops to get involved but sighting clowns?

C'mon, don't waste your time and taxpayers' money.

This is just silly, it's just people dressed up in costumes, there's no harm at all.. If it were any other costume there would be no issue here

John Wayne Gacy used to also dress up like a clown when he tortured and murdered his victims.

Petty weird.

How long before we're reading about a clown having been shot dead? 2 days, 3 maybe?

I'm not a fan of regular clowns, and these creepy clowns are just...

Really, do these people have nothing better to do?

Yeah, the countdown to one of these jokers getting shot must have started.

Chalk another one up for social media.

Yeah it's a copycat thing. The media isn't helping. And I agree, clowns are creepy.

Make up. To break up. That's all, we do. First the pan cake, and the eyebrows, then the giant shoes. Who knows, the fake nose, then the rubber hose, I'm through.

Overreacting much?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The reaction is because around a month ago a clown (or 2) was trying to lure very young kids into the woods

What to do, if you're attacked by a bunch of clowns ?

Go for the juggler !

Gonna go out on a limb here and say all these losers are between the ages of 18-24, white, obsessed with comic book movies and have, of course, no life.

Let's see how many wannabes still do their little dress-up show after a few are taken out by police.

Careful, Alistair. They may be Bozozoku.

With American Gun Laws, it won't be long until a "Creepy Clown" gets a bit of buck shot in the butt!!! Better be careful 'Creepy Clowns"!!! Clowns are Creepy!!!

It actually started already 2 years ago in France...so it's nothing new there in USA...

Sadly seems to be just another sick form popular trend in the West, to frighten people (especially children), with a creepy clown costume...

Myth. From South Carolina.

Progress I suppose.

@Black Sabbath. Whether this was a myth or not it was reported widely and thus it is the root cause of the reaction. That's all.... and yeah it is kind of a strange trend

Keep track of it. Some of this clown activity is causing some trauma to the vulnerable: children.
