An unnamed British man has been dressing up as Batman to fight off ‘killer clowns,’ after the craze led to a series of injuries and seriously scared children.
The man, who is offering his services on the Facebook page Cumbria Superheroes, has refused to identify himself, but has been caught on camera chasing after another man dressed as a clown.
He later published a video telling local children they did not need to be afraid as he was now there to protect them.
“As for you clowns, if you want to scare someone, why don’t you try and scare me?” he added.
“The clowns are giving kids sleepless nights due to their antics and, well, that’s just really miffed Batman,” said the Cumbrian.
A young boy reportedly used his mother’s Facebook account to thank him for his actions, saying: “Hi Batman my name is [redacted]… I have been scared of this clown situation (school told us about it yesterday)… I seen on my mammy fb [Facebook] that u caught the clown this means I can go to school and not be scared, thank you for your efforts.”
