How do they feel about these terrifying clowns and how would they react to seeing one?

“First of all I hate clowns. I think the clowns are taking it as a joke and just scaring people and killing people. I would run away to safety, but I wouldn’t if it’s one of those guys playing around.” – Noelia Vega, Freshman

“I think it’s stupid because people think it’s funny and by doing those jokes a lot of them get killed. I don’t know what I would do. If they run towards me I would run away and call the police.” – Oliver Cortes, Freshman

“I think it’s just very unrealistic because it’s very scary and it’s like those people are like psychotic. I would probably run as fast as I can and go to where there are a bunch of people because I don’t think they will appear on a populated street. It’s better not go out at night alone.” – Sam Huang, Sophomore

would probably run and scream.” – Krupa Patel, Junior

“I find it funny because it’s dumb to me. To be honest, I would record then run a little bit . If I was with a group of friend I would chill there, but if he started running towards me then I would run.” – Thomas Girmay, Junior

It’s creepy because some people are scared of clowns and more people will be scared of clowns now. If it was in public I wouldn’t be scared . I could just run away. I’ll be scared if I’m by myself and if it’s approaching me – Adeel Shaikh, Senior
