From Ohio to England, towns around the world have been spooked by mysterious sightings of creepy and often menacing clowns. In Greenville, South Carolina there have been reports of "recent clown activity" with scary clowns allegedly offering children money to follow them into the woods. One Twitter user posted a supposed photo with the caption "Just spotted a major freak behind fleetwood apts."
News coverage of the clowns is rampant, and the reaction to recent videos and images highlights a growing fear of clowns suddenly sweeping the world.
