I had placed a self-imposed clown ban on myself. I didn’t want to write about all these bullshit crazy clown sightings anymore because I’m of the belief that the consistent media attention is just egging them along. But… then I saw Batman got involved, and my whole self-imposed ban burnt to the ground, because I absolutely had to write about this. Over in England, because, of course, there is a Batman patrolling the streets to make kids feel safe from the clowns.
According to BBC Cumbria, the Batman is from Cumbria Superheroes, a company where you can hire superhero mascots for kid’s birthday parties and things of that nature. Cumbria Superheroes heard that many children had been left traumatised by the clowns lurking around the town, so they decided to donate their Batman suit to a righteous cause.
