Killer Clowns in Calgary
Recently pictures and stories of ‘killer clowns in Calgary’ have been circulating the local social medias. Even though clowns aren’t scary to most people, they can certainly be if seen standing in front of your house at 3 in the morning, or hiding in the bushes, or scrubbing out your shower.
Even though this kind of thing dates back to at least the 1980’s and happens all over the YouTubes, recently it’s been taking off in the United States in the past couple months, with people even reporting clowns have even attempted to lure children into the woods for large amounts of money.
RollingStone refers to it as a hoax, that it’s just people just trolling other people because lulz. There have been no actual arrest reports or murders or real evidence or anything of the sort from this meme. Snopes has also chimed in about a story of killer clowns coming to Canada and murdering 23 people, and of course, it’s fake.
There have been a few clown accounts that have popped up in Calgary, with @YYC_clowns even including a phone number in their contact info. I called it and someone answered with ‘hello daddy’ so I hung up, 2edgy4me.
They have similar pictures.
