This might be the first time that you actually find clowns funny.
Of course, they’re being serious.
Which only makes it funnier.
Though their smile is painted on, some New York clowns are feeling down since they have been losing jobs because of Stephen King’s It remake.
The clowns are fighting back against the scary stigma by staging a rally outside of Union Square Regal Cinema in New York City on Thursday.
John Nelson told NBC 4 New York he and his Clowns in Town business partner have had several cancellations in the last week because of It.
Oh, the poor dears!
The clowns in Australia have been complaining, too. One mentioned that he tried to high-five people and they’d just run away.
Could the movie be that terrifying?
Stephen King’s ‘It‘ is about a demon that takes the form of a clown named Pennywise and terrorizes a Maine town every 27 years. A TV miniseries based on the book was made in the ’90s, but the revamped feature film has pushed the envelope with creepy.
Here’s the official trailer:
Gee, what could be the problem?
Remember, this comes after all those creepy clown sightings last year.
Watch what an all clown screening of ‘It‘ looks like:
If you’re one of the 2 percent of adults that suffers from Coulrophobia — the fear of clowns — that is seriously creepy.
[Nelson] told the station why he is going to the rally, saying: ‘Our hope is to raise enough awareness so when people think of clowns they won’t think of scary murderers but people who dedicate their lives to bringing joy,” said Nelson.’

So, a rally.
Because people are afraid of clowns.
Nobody will find that unnerving, amirite?
