Clowns are complaining about Stephen King's It

Clowns are complaining about Stephen King’s It
Last week a trailer for the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s horror It broke streaming records, and central to the visuals is Pennywise the Clown. Now, some people were actually scared by this trailer, which makes us fear for the future of humanity, but some people got angry.
Real life clowns got angry.
Tickles the Clown, sorry, we have to use her real name to stop laughing, Celine Harland told the Press Association: “It’s a horror movie and it affects people’s thoughts and opinions on what a clown is. Unfortunately, it’s not like Jaws which is unrealistic, we do have clowns in society, and yes it will affect business, of course it will… I have parents and teachers phoning me… they’re scared to hire you for 35 kids in case they’ve got one child who will be upset.”
Wait, Jaws is unrealistic?
The Director of a clown museum had some strong words: “It’s a horrible movie and we’d like to distance ourselves from the subject of scary clowns… We fight our corner as proper clowns because it’s basically a scary character in a clown face which we don’t think much of.” Err, okay. “There’s just so many horrible movies out there … clowns that eat people or whatever. It takes people’s minds in the wrong direction. We don’t need it. It’s bad, it’s disgusting,” he added. “It’s sensational rubbish. I don’t know why people want to see these horrible things, what’s the point? I don’t understand people’s mentalities.”
In respect of these clowns, stop laughing, we won’t embed the trailer. But it looks like the entire world watched it last week anyway.
