Killer Clown 2016: Predators Become Prey
Unfortunately for these killer clowns, the wheels are turning as their victims are now taking charge.
Daily Mirror shares one killer clown prank gone wrong in Cambodia where the prankster was chased by locals and eventually stepped into one of the landmines. The clown was not identified due to landmine injuries but was believed to be a 25-year old student from the US visiting relatives in Asia.
The police said that a group of men chased him to know who he was. “They didn’t want to hurt him, but they wanted to find out who it was and make him apologise to the people he’d scared.”

The Sun in UK also shared a prank gone wrong. After hitting a man with a bat in the head, a clown was run over by a car. The passengers and driver were evidently afraid but continued on with their hunt for the clown that has threatened them.
Another case of a killer clown killed was in Tambov, Russia when a guy pulls out a gun and shoots the 20-year old prankster.
Beatings Gone Wrong
One unfortunate incident included a woman wearing heavy makeup killed because she was mistaken to be a killer clown. Morning News USA says 34-year old Kelly Perez was on her way to her car when she was shot by a man who has mistaken her for a killer clown.
Another similar case was of 26-year old Melissa Reyes from Englewood who was attacked by a group of teenagers because of her heavy makeup. The news agency, however, says that according to Snopes, these two reports are fake.
As Halloween is approaching, we recommend staying away from clown costumes. With the beating and killings of clowns, it is safe to say, they are not the favorite character in the world today.
