In the wake of the creepy clown sightings in several states of North and South Americas and Europe that caused widespread panic, professional clowns from across Latin America came together at an annual convention in Mexico to give a serious message: “We are clowns, not killers!”. Around 200 clowns took part in the 21st International Clown Convention, dressed in bright coloured clothes and makeup, and chanted the word as they clicked group pictures to counter the “creepy clown” craze. In Mexico, these creepy clown sightings became a menace recently. According to the Straits Times, last weekend five teenagers were detained in the northern border city of Mexicali after they dressed as clowns and frightened people by chasing them with bats. In the central city of Queretaro, five others were detained police received complaints due to their devilish clown appearance. (Photo by Carlos Jasso/Reuters)
