Creepy clowns have been popping up across the country, scaring the residents of at least 12 states, leading to several school shutdowns and at least 10 arrests.

Now the phenomenon is spreading to college campuses, with creepy clown sightings on the campuses of the University of Iowa, the University of Miami, Auburn University, and York College, among others.

Students are not happy at Sacred Heart…

…or at Mississippi College…

…at York…

…at Texas A&M…

…at the University of Iowa…

…and at the University of Miami.

In some cases, students were preparing for the worst.

The clown sighting at Auburn appeared to cause the most trouble as the school’s public safety department issued a stern warning to anyone thinking about donning a clown mask and wandering around campus in the dark.

Unlike the normal, social justice-driven conversations about free speech on campus, Auburn was forced to struggle with whether to protect students’ ability to express themselves as court jesters and harlequins, against the safety of students scared they’ll be stalked by killer clowns.
