The Clown Panic Has Hit Israel And It Is Not Funny
Published on October 13, 2017
Inspired by the movie "It," some Israelis are wearing clown masks — and terrifying people in the process. A few of the clowns are even brandishing plastic weapons and chasing after people. Now, there are calls to hunt them down.
There've been a number of recent confrontations, and at least 20 people have been arrested for threatening behavior. Meanwhile, Israeli teachers have been given guidelines for dealing with their students' clown phobias.
These clowns are definitely not a laughing matter.
