Mr. King, we get it dude, you’re a f*cking weirdo, but there’s a time and a place for everything, my man. This creepy clown movement is really messing with people, so now is definitely not the time to come to the defense of the lunatics walking around public parks in clown costumes.
King tweeted to his 2.38 million followers: “Hey, guys, time to cool the clown hysteria–most of em are good, cheer up the kiddies, make people laugh.” He also told The Bangor Daily that “the clown furor will pass, as these things do, but it will come back, because under the right circumstances, clowns really can be terrifying.”
Look, you’re Stephen King, you practically invented the creepy clown- WE KNOW. But, like, people are actually getting hurt during these clown incidents, so I really think this is one time where you should keep your disturbing thoughts to yourself.
