Every college where there have been killer clown ‘sightings’

But are any of them real?


In the last couple of days, it feels like every college in America has had a “sighting” of “killer clowns”.

From big schools like Syracuse and Penn State, to small schools like Bucknell, it appears no-one is safe from the social media outcry.

Starting with nothing more than a tweet or a hazy picture, the furore quickly develops into a full blown panic that takes over campus at least for a couple of hours.
