McDonald’s Keeps Ronald Appearances To A Minimum After Clown Violence
McDonald’s wants no parts of the creepy clown trend!
“McDonald’s and franchisees in local markets are mindful of the current climate around clown sightings in communities and as such are being thoughtful with respect to Ronald McDonald’s participation in community events for the time being.”
“This does not mean that there will be no appearances by Ronald McDonald, but that we are being thoughtful as to Ronald McDonald’s participation in various community events at this time,” McDonald’s spokeswoman Terri Hickey said.
Creepy clown sightings have been on the rise as stories of knife violence, kidnappings and shenanigans have made headlines in the past few weeks. Do you think the clown craziness is a marketing ploy or just end of times??
