The new IT movie is killing the clown business. It comes out in theatres on September 8th, and if you’ve seen the trailer, you know it’s CREEPY. Well now the World Clown Association, an actual real thing, is saying that creepy old Pennywise has led to a negative public perception of clowns, and the loss of jobs for the clown community! I hate to burst your bubble here, BUT CLOWNS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN CREEPY!
Long before this new IT movie, long before the original IT novel or movie from the early 90’s (Tim Curry as Pennywise is still super scary), clowns have been creepy as all heck! Kids have been and always will be afraid of clowns, that’s just life – you did it yourselves clowns! And don’t even get me started on MIMES!
Are you looking forward to the new IT movie?
