    Seems like more and more people seem to be doing these killer clown pranks, and some are even going one step further and actually stabbing people. What do you think of all this?

    It's stupid. They're causing trouble and wasting police time. Didn't this whole 'killer clown' thing come up a few years ago as well?

    I love how people say it's a fad that's come over from the US... they've been doing it in Birmingham at least for years now!

    They wouldn't be doing it if people on social media didn't make it go viral and blow it out of proportion.

    Like let's be honest, people love this **** really and social media will be sad when it's over.

    I just find it bizarre the way people are reacting.. like clowns are some sort of extraterrestrial beings from another dimension. Anybody can dress up as a clown. Obviously some are taking it too far with the knives, but mostly it's just harmless clowning around.

    Idk it's all so stupid from both sides.

    Yeah, lol at the news describing it as 'clown sightings' like they're not just people in bloody costumes.
