I have had very huge fear of clowns after my uncle (who's now in his early 70s) told me a creepy story (when I was 9 years old) about a real life notorious serial killer and rapist/child molester named John Wayne Gacy who was a clown that killed about 33 under-aged boys and reading a bunch of creepy novels about clowns in general). My uncle told me that he had an acquaintence who personally knew Gacy as teens during the time when no one was aware of Gacy's heinous crimes being committed (late 1960s-1970s). Since then, I grew up having trust issues with clowns when going to children's parties involving clowns, carrying a switchblade with me when ever I come to these parties (during my early teen years).
