We couldn’t make this up.
People are living real-life nightmares with the prospect of sinister, weapon-wielding, clowns popping up everywhere. Teachers have issued warnings to kids and police are investigating the sightings.
It’s gotten so bad that Batman has gotten involved to protect the local schoolchildren of Whitehaven, Cumbria.
Batman is not actually a vigilante. He was sent out by a local costume company, Cumbria Superheroes, to reassure children.
A mom shared the above letter on Facebook thanking Batman for his intervention:
“Hi Batman my name is xxx.
