Sightings of scary clowns have been going viral all around the internet .


It started with a man walking around in the dark in Green Bay, Wisconsin wearing gruesome black and white clown makeup carrying black balloons. Then, next in Greenville South Carolina children told police about a clown sighting trying to lure them in with cash. Then, the sightings have went from all around, into different states, causing school closing and several arrests.
The clown sightings are not new. They have even went back as far as 1981, but now, there has been a sudden outburst of clown sightings and “clown hunting”.

There are people who are terrified of the creepy clown sightings and others who are just irritated by the whole situation. And the ones who are irritated have began “clown hunting” .  Clown hunting is where people go out and nag and approach the clowns.
They are out and about at night. And people are targeting them. It’s not illegal to be dressed as a clown, but people are highly suggested to call the police if they see people dressed as clowns and acting suspiciously.
