Creepy killer clown craze starts to impact professional’s business

Written by on 11th October 2016

Stories of people dressed as scary clowns have been all over the media in the past few weeks. None have appeared in Lincoln yet, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t affected the local professional community.

The clowns have been terrorising innocent bystanders all over the UK and US. Some people have been taking a stand against the pranksters, but this craze still continues.

The whole stunt is seems to be big Halloween prank, but it is starting to impact those who perform as clowns professionally.

on the circuit for over 25 years, and is now seeing that his job is being threatened.

“It’s just no joke being a clown. Because of these dodgy pretend character around at the moment people’s attitudes are changing”

Peter said that: “It’s got to the point now where people come up to me and they ask me to move away because someone they’re with might be afraid of clowns.”

Thankfully for Peter his business in Lincoln hasn’t been impacted yet, but stories in the industry have been emerging.

“What other minority group could you say that to? You’d be in court straight away.”

Keep your eyes out in Lincoln. As we get closer to Halloween the clowns could arrive here too.
