As the official release of the Stephen King’s horror adaptation movie,  IT  is near, the World Clown Association is not really pleased with the movie.  Pam Moody, the president of the World Clown Association, who also teaches good safety practices to children via her character as Sparky the Firefighter Clown said:

“It all started with the original IT. That introduced the concept of this character. It’s a science-fiction character. It’s not a clown and has nothing to do with pro clowning. […] People had school shows and library shows that were canceled. That’s very unfortunate. The very public we’re trying to deliver positive and important messages to aren’t getting them.”

“Just as a Haunted House event may have a ‘doctor’ wearing surgical gear, carrying a bloody chainsaw, people need to understand that this character is NOT a real doctor. He is a person portraying an evil character in order to scare people. In the same way, people dressed as horror clowns are not ‘real clowns’. They are taking something innocent and wholesome and perverting it to create fear in their audience.”
