The Creepy Clown Takeover

The Creepy Clown Takeover

If you were hoping for a spooky October this year, you’re in luck. Clowns have taken over the country (or at least every social media feed). People all across the nation watched in fear as several videos and pictures popped up featuring creepy clowns walking around ominously or chasing down innocent bystanders.

Here are a few standout clown sightings from Twitter:

The clown sightings originated in states around the East coast. However, after capturing the nation’s interest on social media, these sightings began spreading out to the West coast, causing a nationwide scare of the “creepy clown” phenomenon.

The Twitter account Clown Watch even tweeted that a clown was spotted outside of our very own Thousand Oaks High School. Lucky for us, a popular clown defense technique has been floating around on Twitter. So if you’re ever unlucky enough to encounter one of these clowns, remember to strike, scream, and run.
