Honestly, this whole clown situation has gotten out of hand
Hello, my fellow readers, I’m here to talk a little bit about:
- What a clown is
- What a creepy clown is and what’s going on in the world
- My opinions and what we do about this situation
I don’t have much good to say about this situation but hey, ridiculous situations sometimes inspire good things. Maybe this will rid the world of clowns forever! Just kidding… (I’m not a fan of clowns.)
So, you probably already know what a clown is, but in case you don’t I’m going to give you a bit of a run down. A clown is a traditional entertainer meant to bring a sense of joy and happiness to it’s audience. A clown generally wears a colorful, obscure costume that is mainly meant for kids to make them laugh, and be happy. They found out later into the trend that clowns don’t actually make everyone happy. In fact they actually scare the bajeezus out of many kids, and adults (including me.) In 2016 it is now important to be selective of your audience when deciding to hire a clown, and to make sure there is no fear of clowns around. To be honest, coming from someone that’s not particularly a fan of clowns; they’re just too unnatural and give me a shiver. Having said that, I do love the idea and just wish their faces weren’t covered by clown makeup. If that was the case I would have no problem with them.
Now, what’s happened in the world is somebody has decided to embrace the fact that there are so many individuals that carry a clown-phobia, and actually create a trend to purposely instill a fear of clowns into the world by mimicking clown costumes and adding creepy features to maximize the fear in people. The ‘creepy clowns’ haven’t actually done anything to hurt anyone, but it has been widely blown out of proportion and said to be dangerous. There have been many threats over the internet as well as stories spread that have proven themselves to be false.
I must say some of the things I’ve read on the internet are just crazy. Things like: Crazy clown kidnaps 18 children, or creepy clown murders family, this is just insanity and my personal belief is that the people within social media spreading these rumors should face as much of a penalty as the clowns themselves. It’s not fair to construct these lies, and all they’re doing is helping these clowns get what they want; which is a rise out of society.
Social media has created a ton more controversy about this subject than necessary. This was a simple cruel joke set out by some teenagers, it really didn’t need to become a global topic. Sure they’re out there being creepy, but now Halloween is coming up and it will likely be frowned upon to dress up as a clown, instead of it being an acceptable and clever costume. What I’m saying in a nutshell is: This whole clown situation is ridiculous and shouldn’t be taken seriously. Don’t believe everything you read, cause on the internet you can pretend to be anyone you want, and you can make up anything you want.
That’s about all I have to say, I don’t want to go into too much detail, as I’m not really a big fan of the subject, if you’re interested in learning more; follow this link.
