|ClownTown came out in June...|
It's the mass hysteria that keeps on giving! The "creepy clown" phenomenon/hoax seems to be showing no sign of abating, and is even attracting the attention of larger media outlets.
- The New York Times has a piece on 'clown'-related arrests;
- Rolling Stone has an article on "the Terrifying Hoax Sweeping America";
- People talks to a folklorist about "why you shouldn't panic";
- While a Fox news site in Cleveland is reporting school closures because of "clowns";
- And a news site in Fort Wayne is reporting the shooting of a man dressed as a clown;
- Elsewhere, a professional 'creepy' clown in Jacksonville is concerned about the threats he and his clowning colleagues are receiving;
- And finally, a police recommendation NOT to shoot random clowns!
