Staten Island Clown Terrorizing Residents: Video!
"Staten Islanders have been scared silly by images of a clown carrying balloons and stalking neighborhoods after dark that have started to appeared on social media.
The Post has learned that the Staten Island residents who sparked the creepy viral phenomenon are all tied to the same boro-based horror movie production company."
The New York Post
Will people ever learn that an Internet meme has no connection to reality? Don`t believe a rumor on Twitter or Facebook that a celeb has died, unless it`s been reported by CNN or Fox News. For God`s sake don`t believe this social media hype about a clown terrorizing Staten Island unless it`s verified by a Fox News Alert.
Children and grown-a** adults have a visceral reaction to clowns: When we spy one of these infernal creatures we wet our drawers and run for our lives.
Even if we suspect that the clown is just publicity stunt our fear of them is so ingrained that we are rendered paralyzed.
This clown wasn`t brandished a weapon or uttering malicious threats, he was simply walking down the street holding balloons. A clown is inherently evil, and his presence alone is enough to scare the bejesus out of us.
Stand your ground laws apply to clowns nationwide, if you see a clown blow him away to Kingdom Come, let the Almighty sort it out, and never mind the legal consequences.
Zero tolerance for clowns!
