Have you been wondering what all the chat about clowns is about? Me too …
I found this little video helpful on the background and I guess the take-away point is to tell your kids is stupid and just people being silly.
The 2016 clown sightings, referred to in various regions by names such as “panic”, “uprising”, “craze”, “invasion” and the like, are a series of evil clown sightings first reported in the United States and subsequently in other Western countries since August 2016. The clown sightings were first reported in South Carolina, United States. By early October 2016 they have been reported in over half of US states, eight out of ten Canadian provinces, and nine other countries.
