Stephen King says we shouldn’t be scared of clowns.
And he would know considering he wrote quite possibly the most terrifying story about a clown ever written so SURE, take his word for it.
Hey, guys, time to cool the clown hysteria–most of em are good, cheer up the kiddies, make people laugh.

Yeah, clowns are FUNNY. HA HA HA.
Anyone else see the irony here of the King of Horror saying we shouldn’t be scared? Or maybe it’s just some sideways plot to get us to let our guard down and BOOM, he’ll scare us with another clown story.
@StephenKing Nothing contributed more to my clown hysteria than "It"

Many of us (ahem, yeah us) are scared of clowns because of ‘It.’ Yup.
.@StephenKing "It" was the first horror book I ever read. I still fear clowns.

Dude, he did.
@StephenKing Pennywise was just misunderstood.

Oh yeah, THAT’S it. We’re judging Pennywise based on a stereotype when really he was just a predator looking for dinner.

Nope, not scary at all.
