‘Scary Clowns’ Wave Makes Mcdonald’s Limit Appearances Of Their Mascot – Kostum Badut Bandung
First glitches occurred in August in the United States and since then there have been reports in the UK, Australia, and Brazil
Ronald McDonald’s entries at events will be canceled because of appearances of ‘scary clowns’.
The McDonald’s diner network said it would restrict public appearances of its mascot, Ronald McDonald, because of recent records involving “scary clowns.”
Masked, sinister-looking clowns were spotted in public in August in the United States and have since been seen in the UK, Australia, and now in Brazil. Some records have spread through social networks.
McDonald’s has not reported how many public appearances of its mascot, the company’s global icon for decades, will be canceled.
– We are aware of the current mood generated by the clowns sighted in different communities and because of that we are being careful about Ronald McDonald’s participation in events, “the company said in a statement.
In August, residents of Greenville, South Carolina (USA), reported seeing a clown-clad person with a macabre look trying to lure children into a forest.
Australian police also arrested a 19-year-old man for scaring people while he was in costume.
A student wearing clown clothes and carrying a chainsaw was filmed chasing students on the campus of a British university. He then apologized and said he was just “chasing friends”.
British police have increased the number of patrols in some schools and urged fancy shops to stop selling McDonald’s kostum badut bandung masks.
In Brazil, a supposed photo of a macabre clown in a park on the east side of São Paulo was widely shared earlier this month. There have also been reports of apparitions in cities in the interior of São Paulo, in Rio de Janeiro and Goiânia.
However, the Military Police of São Paulo informed to the site G1 not to have received “any report of such supposed actions”.
