  1. In 1998 it was fashionable for a Grown Adult to claim that they have a Fear of Clowns now it's just Pathetic & Tired.
    99.9% who claim they have Clown o Phobia have Munchausen syndrome. Everyone that reads this can do a favor by exposing this nonsense & don't buy into it. Keep in mind people who have pseudo clown phobia AKA: Munchausen syndrome may be hard to reach because ego is connected into this False persona. They want attention thru acting scared of Children's Entertainers because it's a "Funny Quirk" but it isn't. There's also some Insecure Adults who don't like Clowns because they fear being made a fool of & embarrassed. Folks, Comedians are Clowns without makeup! Real Clown o phobia is extremely rare but those who have it don't tell the World & They Seek Professional Help.

    1. Every time I see a Dark Clown story in the news, I think, "There's some crappy journalism."
