The trend of terror clowns lurking in the shadows has reached an all-time high. Recent sightings have occurred all over the U.S. and have even made their way to Britain.
Although most of the clowns have appeared to be more interested in scaring people than harming them, it does not change the fear that many experience when faced with carnies who have gone rogue.
During a recent encounter with a clown, a group of friends decided to show the person dressed as the comical figure that this behavior has got to stop. When faced with the clown, the friends swiftly acted and used a bat to beat the clown.
After they pummel the clown to the ground, the friends take his balloons and run away. The clown did not appear to be severely injured, but he was hurt nonetheless.
This physical altercation comes at a point where scary clown copy-cats have been popping up left and right. The sightings first started in a South Carolina town when families where alerted that clowns were attempting to lure children into the woods.
Although those sightings turned out to be false, it inspired a national uprising of scary clowns. As a result, dozens of clown conspirators have been arrested and now even attacked.
The moral of the story is no one likes a scary clown, so can everyone stop dressing as them. Besides, you don’t want to end up like this poor clown and get beaten by a group of strangers who aren’t afraid to show you a thing or two.
