What's with all the creepy clowns?
While passing in a convenience store, I saw a front page on a supposed multinational trend of people dressing like creepy clowns to scare people. It would have started a few weeks ago and seems to be gaining some steam in my area while gaining some European countries (it started in South Carolina in August apparently). Did I missed anything in the news lately? With Donald Trump on the air every hour of the day, don't people have enough creepy clown in their daily lives? Is it a marketing ploy for a movie or video game going viral and bursting from its bounds? Seriously, what the hell is going on with that? I get it scaring people and kids is funny, but some of them were sighted flashing weapons. By looking at those clic bait articles, it seems the media are loving it and are spreading the panic (sometimes in the guise of trying to reassure people). How come the US haven't crumble under the weigth of their fear mongering or completly deconnected is a surprise to me. It seems I have under estimated the quantity of shit a human being can absorb and process.

There have been a couple of threads here about the phenomenon. Just another passing fad that some freaks can take advantage of to scare people, I guess.

It's not going well for the clowns. They try to scare the wrong people and get the shit beat out of them.

Don't let those gnomes and their illusions get you down. They're just gnomes and illusions.

RE: What's with all the creepy clowns?
I don't know, but some people are taking it way too seriously. I had heard it about from someone at work a month or so ago, and mentioned that sounded like a good Halloween costume. He interrupted me mid-sentence, and started raising his voice, not letting me speak with "You can't do that! It's illegal! They made it illegal! You'll get arrested!". I tried, while still confused by the response, to tell him they they couldn't make something like that illegal. He wasn't having it. More yelling, more "No, you're wrong!". I don't get it.

RE: What's with all the creepy clowns?
When did being a clown become illegal? The people afraid of this must have the emotional maturity of a three year-old. It says something frightening about the mindset of this country. Instead of asking the clowns what it's all about, we're trying to legislate the clowns out of existence.

... why?:

RE: What's with all the creepy clowns?
I've listened to a few responses from professional clowns. Oh my... so hilarious, but also sad in a way. They are very upset that their clowning business is being put in this terribly bad light.

I heard one spokesman say "We take our clowning very seriously."
