    It's a hoax. A 3 year old could have figured that out.

    No, it's actually 100% legit. A couple of clown sightings migrated north through our area

    I've been researching this issue since there was a supposed "clown sighting" in my area.
    The thing is, I am finding very little evidence to back up most claims and it seems a good chunk of them are indeed fake. I've also found that this issue has a long history behind it.
    Here's a relevant issue to the topic


    Still I think the first few cases were most likely hoaxes, then a few copycat cases started popping up to bring some life to these hoaxes. Regardless, it's becoming way overblown.

    Maybe it's a way to promote the upcoming It remake. I have noticed headlines about scary clown sightings, and apparently a school banned wearing clown masks. Or was it a whole town? I don't know. I want to watch Killer Klowns from Outer Space now.

    If I see a clown, I'm going to kick the shit out of it. Legally, I think it would be seen as reasonable force.
