Police have issued a statement on their national website entitled “Evil Clown Phenomenon”
On Thursday, the village of Vendargues, population 6,000, near Montpellier issued a decree warning that “individuals or groups of people aged 13 or more” are banned from dressing up as clowns on streets and in public spaces on October 31st and November 1st.
Some of the cops even have a taste for cinema:
This followed a warning last week from Pas-de-Calais police in northern France that “clowns inspired by Texas Chainsaw Massacre are not welcome outside schools.”
While others are minding anti-evil-clown vigilantes on social media (yes):
Police have warned would-be anti-clown vigilantes, who have also created Facebook pages, not to take the law into their own hands.
When will French nationalists denounce the Evil Clown Phenomenon as another vile American import?
