In case you’ve actively decided to avoid the news, people have been dressing up as clowns all throughout the country.
This has been going on since August, but reports of creepy clown sightings have been ramped up over the past few weeks. CBS Chicago has extensive reporting on sightings and threats in the Chicagoland area.
Why has this become a thing? Who knows…
Either way, check out creepy footage of clown sightings caught on camera below.
If you feel any reason to dress up as a clown this Halloween, I recommend dressing up as In Living Color’s Homey D. Clown.
