Creepy clowns are just real-life trolls

Police across England have been called to dozens of incidents in which pranksters dress as “creepy clowns” to deliberately scare people. The culprits are said to be following a trend that started in the US. A 30-year-old man was arrested and cautioned in Norwich after someone dressed as a clown jumped out from behind a tree and “terrified” a woman in a public park. On Sunday Thames Valley Police said it was called to 14 incidents in 24 hours… More at the BBC.

These people are just real-life trolls who get their kicks out of upsetting people. Interesting how in the BBC news TV story, a clown popped out and the man challenged him, so the clown ran off. Yes, a cowardly troll. Is there any other kind?
