Clowns will bring a negative connotation for those who watched the movie based in Steven King book ’’it’’ where the creepy clown was the main villain of the story. And the same genre movies jumped on the vagon by portraying clowns as not the kindest and entertaining characters. So the image is kinda brainwashed our minds – clowns! Beware! Unfortunately that’s how the propaganda works making people suspicious who about dwells under the cover of a supposedly friendly character.
