My hope is this crazy fad doesn't come to Asia. If it does, collectively we must take action.
Very few children actually like clowns. Yet, we have them in children's parties and programmes. Worst of all, running around hospital wards assuming will make the kids get well sooner!
In a number of surveys, clowns are rated top on creepiness list. It feels creepy when we see ambiguities, unknown and uncertainties; clowns hiding their identities and feelings behind the make up and wig and most of than not ranging from being mischievous to a prankster.
I like the advice of the author....
If you see a clown at the edge of the woods on, say, South Ohioville Road, please remember that he or she is probably a person just like you: One with feelings. So my suggestion is...to run the other way, and don’t look back! Clowns are deindividuated and creepy!
