Ronald McDonald Keeping Lower Profile Amid Reports Of Creepy Clown Sightings

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — McDonald’s says Ronald McDonald is keeping a low profile with reports of creepy clown sightings on the rise.

McDonald’s Corp. said Tuesday that it is being “thoughtful in respect to Ronald McDonald’s participation in community events” as a result of the “current climate around clown sightings in communities.”

The company did not provide any other details about how often its red-haired mascot makes appearances, and how that will change.

The burger chain’s decision comes after a rash of pranks around the country, including the Southland, that have involved eerie clown sightings. The reports have forced police in some areas to respond.
