‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Offends Real Life, Non-Violent Clowns
TV

It is unclear when the shift in the way we look at clowns occurred exactly. At one point, they were considered fun, friendly, non-threatening beings. Somewhere along the lines, probably due to clowns like Stephen King’s “Itor John Wayne Gacy’s real life killings, people started to associate the circus characters with death and danger.
