The History Behind America’s Current Creepy Clown Craze

Vox video producer Christophe Haubursin gave the history behind America’s current creepy clown craze. Reports of people in clown masks have been popping up around the country recently, but the phenomenon certainly is not new with roots that go as far back as the early 1800s.

The video also mentions an interactive map on Atlas Obscura that is tracking the current round of sightings around the country.
