Apparently, the sighting of scary-looking clowns – and posting of their photos and videos to social media – has suddenly become a thing:


Creepy clown hysteria is spreading across the United States and many have been capturing the unusual sightings on their smartphones, including a recent ‘hunt’ at Penn State University.

The @SpookyClowns Twitter account, which has amassed 160,000 followers, is sharing clips and photos of ‘scary clown sightings’. …

The alarming sightings were first reported in August, when police responded to reports of ‘creepy’ clowns trying to lure children into woods in South Carolina. Since then there have been numerous other reports and warnings from police.

Hmmm… since August. Wasn’t that around the time the Trump campaign went into full gear? We say it’s more than coincidence – and, as we often say, it would be irresponsible not to speculate!
