People often have various perceptions regarding clowns and for Regina Martinez, clowning is a very important aspect of her job which is now facing challenges due to imposters. Martinez is the proprietor of Austin clown-related store Silly Sparkles, which has been recently affected by the growing reports of questionable people wearing clown costumes and scaring people away from real clowns. However, it seems Martinez’s business is not affected at all as she said that she is booked for 21 events for this month alone. Unfortunately, unlike Martinez’s fate, McDonald’s Corporation is having trouble because of these clown sightings and now considering a change to its mascot choice until the problem has been resolved. Halloween has also been affected by the clown sightings nationwide due to the drop of children buying clown costumes.
