Nice clowns in the United States are fed up with all the negativity and shade thrown towards clowns - so much so that they've organized a "Clown Lives Matter" march for October 15.

Friends, I know this sounds like a joke but apparently it's not.

According to Denver7, this march is being held all the way down in Tuscon, Arizona, where attendees will show up wearing full-on clown costumes or masks. A flyer for the event says "this is a peaceful way to show clowns are not psycho killers. We want the public to feel safe, and not be afraid. So come out, bring the family, meet a clown and get a hug!"

Though it sounds innocent, this still creeps me out. I personally have always thought clowns are a little weird and creepy, though I realize there are good clowns out there like those in rodeos and at birthday parties.

While they're indeed not psycho killers, Colorado Springs police have confirmed that a clown physically attacked a man, leaving a deep cut to his head and part of his ear having to be sewn back on. (Just something to keep in mind during this creepy clown epidemic...)
