Professional clowns warn that 'It' will harm their business

With Halloween and the upcoming release of a new "It" film based on Stephen King's horror story about a clown, state police are hoping to head off creepy clown sightings that fueled panic around the country last fall. But, people would be mistaken if they actually thought he was a hockey player!

"People had school shows and library shows that were cancelled".

Clowns: you either love them or you're terrified of them, and thanks to a new horror movie, more people are realizing that they can't bear to look at them.

The WCA is reminding its members that, "We bring a happy, joyful, creative, caring, positive and fun experience to our audiences" and that "the character in the movie "It" should be understood to be a fantasy character, not a true clown".

"We've since created a press kit to prepare clowns for the movie coming out", Moody told THR about It.

Yet people continue to be unnerved by clowns, which has been leading to real-life professional clowns losing jobs over the phobia, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It will be released nationwide on September 8.

Another Mosquito Pool Tests Positive For West Nile Virus
Older adults and persons with weakened immune systems and/or other chronic illnesses are at the greatest risk for severe illness. The Wisconsin Division of Public Health will continue surveillance for West Nile virus until the end of the mosquito season.

In a tweet from April, Stephen King addressed the backlash he had been getting from professional clowns who blame him for the public's growing fear of clowns.

"It all started with the original It", she explained. "That introduced the concept of this character". However, in what seems to be an effort to make Pennywise all the more terrifying, we don't hear anything from Bill Skarsgård (Allegiant), who is playing the child-eating clown.

"It's a science-fiction character", he said.

When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

Muschietti confirmed that Pennywise will take the shape of whatever you fear most - so if you fear clowns, you'd be pretty screwed in these special showings.
