The only good thing to come of this is that I'm sure there will be a Modern Family episode soon where Cam is outraged about the clown reputations being tarnished

I still haven't quite figured out what this is all about - is this just people randomly deciding to terrorise people, or was there an event that triggered it? A FB friend commented on a clown post that it was a publicity thing for a movie or something, which made it more confusing!
There have been a couple of clown sightings in my local area - there was also a WA man arrested after chasing a group of teenage girls. They ran to a police station and he was charged with disorderly conduct and possession of a disguise. Some people questioned that second charge but apparently concealing your identity while committing a crime is an offence.

There is speculation that it's advertisement for the new IT movie, which comes out next year. Those claims have been denied, but who knows...
Even if there is a reason behind it starting, I think it's now just people jumping on the bandwagon.

I remember reading months ago in America the clown would just stand on the side of the road in the middle of the night to scare people. Now it's here and in wa one was in someone's yard and climbed onto roof banging on windows. Why!!? It's terrorising for what?
I just heard a noise outside and first thing that popped in my mind was a clown. Wtf.
One day soon one of these clowns is going to get bashed when they "scare" the wrong person. And they will deserve it

There have already been a few clowns bashed and some even run over. This whole thing is nuts.

I'm not gonna lie. I did have a giggle when I first heard about this.
I imagine it started out as an innocent prank, but as it gained popularity, no doubt someone went too far. If that's the case, I think it a good idea people are being warned not to dress up and do it. Time to call it quits kiddies.
However, I image, come Halloween we will see ALOT more

The whole thing is absolutely ridiculous! I'm terrified of clowns because I associate them with psychotic people. These are not your "friendly" (there's no such thing) looking clowns. They are dressing up as evil and scary looking idiots. If one came near me and tried to scare me then I would absolutely fight back. I would take it very seriously and not assume it was a prank therefore I would not hold back. If I was in my car and they looked armed or were coming at me then I would run them down. Not because I'm evil but because when you are scared out of your mind then you do what your instinct tells you to do and that is generally to protect yourself! It will be a sad day when someone assumes there's a person dressed up playing along with these pranksters only to end up assaulted or killed by someone who really is a psycho dressed as a clown. How can you know the difference? Ugh! I haven't seen one yet and I'm hoping it stays that way... I don't want to be put in a position to defend myself in the first place but I know I definitely would.
