Real-Life Clowns Are Really Not Happy with the It Movie
The term hate-watching is generally associated with television shows that you hate. In the case of It, though, it means something slightly different: Im going to watch and based on the promising (and record-breaking) trailer enjoy Andrés Muschiettis horror movie, but I hate clowns. Im clearly not the only one.
To be fair, clowns are people, too (I think), and theyre trying to make an honest buck doing what they love: entertaining children. Thats why the Clowns of America International were pissed at American Horror Story, and all of Hollywood, for sensationalizing the norm by taking any situation no matter how good or pure and turn it into a nightmare. Theyre probably not too happy about It, either. Nick Kane, who clowns as Mr. Nick, sure isnt. We just experienced a nice break from the scary clown meme from last October. And just when things are starting to normalize, the It trailer comes and its like, here we go again.
--Are you afraid of clowns? What do you think is the cause of your clown-phobia? Were you scared of them as a kid, or did you turn anti-clown as you got older?
--If so many people are afraid of clowns, then why are they still a fixture at kids partieswith most of the children seemingly deliriously happy? Is this really an adult thing?
