The Northampton Clown -- AKA Alex Powell -- made headlines for a series of creepy selfies taken around the English city of Northampton. Now, his notoriety has sparked a nationwide trend of copycat clown-pranksters who make mischief such as rapping on peoples' windows while brandishing weapons. England's clowns are furious.
Eldridge, whose clown name is Bluebottle, said: "This is doing clowning no favours and is harming society.
"The people behind it might see it as a bit of a laugh, but for the victims it can be a horrible experience.

"This has nothing to do with clowning, it's a small group of people with stupid views and it spoils the fun for everybody else."
