Days after the story of the creepy clown in Northampton, U.K. went worldly with pictures of the oft-appearing clown hitting publications across the globe, the clown has finally spoken out, according to the Northampton Chronicle and Echo - the publication which the clown spoke to.
The clown, appearing much like the Pennywise character in Stephen King’s motion picture “It” said that he definitely understands why people were creeped-out or extremely frightened by him, but he says his adventures as the clown were with good-humored intentions. He said that he wanted to amuse people. He claims that most people enjoy being a little freaked out, and then they can laugh about it afterwards. He compared it to watching a horror movie, as he said people get scared and then they usually start laughing.
He understands that some people would have been extremely frightened by what he did and what they say, but he hopes many are starting to see it as a bit of harmless fun. He admits to being amazed by the reaction of the town’s people and enjoyed seeing so many people talking about it.
For those who want to know who this character really is, sorry. He wants to remain anonymous. Speaking about himself, however, he did reveal that he is a Stephen King fan.
It sounds like he finally stepped forward because he said it was becoming more and more difficult to keep his identity a secret as people were starting to figure out where he lives. As long as people are interested, he said he will make occasional appearances in the future, too.
Allegedly, the clown has a Facebook page and offers to do children's parties. So, in time, people are going to know who he is - if he wants to get paid by check, anyway.
