Headline of the day II: Coulrophobia hits Germany


That epidemic of fear of clowns plaguing the U.S. has spread to yet another country.

From United Press International:

Germany implements ‘no tolerance’ policy against ‘creepy clowns’

  • German authorities and retailers have announced they will not tolerate the sale or use of “creepy clown” costumes in advance of Halloween.
  • German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere stated there would be “no tolerance” for the rash of attacks involving people dressed in “creepy clown” outfits, according to the BBC.
  • “When people face threats of violence on a wide scale, it can be treated as an offense,” he said. “It no longer has anything to do with harmless Halloween traditions.”
