Horrifying Clown Threats Put High School On Lockdown — And Get Woman Arrested On Terrorist Charges!

Threatening clowns are moving out of the woods and onto the web.

Multiple Alabama schools were on lockdown last week after a series of Facebook posts from users posing as clowns threatened students with violence.

Messages from the group “Flomo Klown” warned children that clowns may show up at two Birmingham-area schools and cause harm.

After police investigated, a 22-year-old Alabama woman and one unnamed juvenile were found to be behind the Facebook group.

On Monday, Makayla Smith was arrested and charged with making a terrorist threat for using the Flomo Klown account, as well as another account called “Shoota Cllown” — both of which sent disturbing images and violent threats to students at Flomaton High School:

Smith and the juvenile put the small town high school on lockdown for several hours on Thursday, with over 30 officers and FBI agents at the school grounds.

While authorities insist there was “no threat” of clowns actually showing up to the school and causing harm, officials are still monitoring the situation. Detective Sergeant Michael Mangina said:

“Part of the problem is the fact this stuff gets on social media and it explodes and it alarms people and it just spreads. In today’s climate, we’re better safe than sorry.”

Smith is being held on $200,000 bail and the unnamed juvenile is also expected to be charged.

With dangerous clowns lurking in the woods, we definitely agree that it’s better to be safe than sorry!
