Clowns BANNED in Small Town After String Of EVIL Clown Attacks

Welcome to the newest fad for idiots: Wandering the streets dressed as an evil clown.


There have been a number of assaults by people disguised as fake, “evil” clowns.

Some of those wreaking havoc on the streets have been armed with pistols, knives or baseball bats.

The incidents include one where a youngster hit a passer-by 30 times with an iron bar in Montpellier. He was jailed for four months.

Vendargues, which has a population of about 6,000 and is near Montpellier, is believed to be the first town to impose such a ban.

The decision was made by the mayor, and official Bruno Giraudo said France wants to “avoid any disruption… by evil clowns”.

He added: “It’s about protecting children by preventing any ill-intentioned clowns from mixing with residents.”

Police say people have increasingly reported spotting clowns “outside schools, but also on public roads, in bushes, in a square”.

Officers have arrested more than a dozen teenagers following the attacks.

My assumption is that this probably started with a bunch of idiots thinking this would be a fun way to troll people in real life. You dress up like a creepy clown and enjoy freaking people out, but if the police ask what you’re doing, you protest that you don’t mean anyone any harm. Then you take it a little further by carrying a weapon. Eventually, either you take it too far and use a weapon or just freak someone out and end up in a violent fight.

We have these same sort of idiots showing up in California towns and it shouldn’t surprise anyone if it ends up the same way it did in this French town.
