I dont know what the cause of it, but i was always scared of clowns, because think of it, why wouldn't i be scared of a grown man wearing baggy and misfitting clothing with excessive garnish make up and a freaky hair wig..

the theory i read is because clowns have permanent, exaggerated expressions painted on their faces, usually of joy but not always,this is heightened when we observe the "happy" clown performing some aggressive behavior while putting happy face makeup, it just messes with your mind.
