Don’t Send In The Clowns

Stephen King has ticked off the clowns. Last April, the horror author — currently in the midst of a Hollywood renaissance that includes adaptations of The Dark Tower and, out Sept. 8, New Line’s It — tweeted that the big-shoed performers were “pissed at me. Sorry, most are great. BUT,” he continued, “kids have always been scared of clowns. Don’t kill the messengers for the message.” King was referring to the hits being inflicted upon the legitimate clowning industry thanks to Pennywise the killer clown — just one of many forms taken by the evil entity referenced in the book’s title.
