From what I could gather from the luring kids into the woods story was someone made a fake clown watch Twitter page and was spreading the rumor of the clowns luring kids into the woods. A ton of these Twitter pages dedicated to watching out for clowns are a sham. Not saying there aren't people doing it because a few nights ago there was a clown scaring people at the Jack trice Parking lot. Lots of people are trying to jump into this fad by claiming there are clowns outside when there really wasn't. If anyone watches Phil Defranco on YouTube his last two videos touched on clowns for a little bit. Edit: I should also say I'm not saying the clowns are harmless because I do find it insanely creepy and wish the police could do something about it but so far there hasn't been reports of them doing anything illegal so they aren't breaking the law.
