Clown Craze Condemned By Eastbourne MP

Wednesday 12th October 2016


As clowns continue to be spotted around Eastbourne, scaring both young and old, the town’s MP is condemning those taking part in the fad.

Caroline Ansell said, “I hope this is a very much a short lived craze because it’s really getting out of hand with incidents now reported in Eastbourne.

“Everyone likes a prank but to dress up in a clown mask and jump out in front of total strangers is anti-social, extremely distressing for the victims and it’s my fear it could end in tragedy.

“It seems to be spreading primarily across social media and I would ask people not to like videos and or share them. People might think it’s funny to watch, but they need to think: ‘How would I feel if that happened to me?’”
