You may have heard of the “Clown Menace” that has shackled the United States of America.

No, we’re not talking about Donald Trump.

The frenzy was born in South Carolina in late August after unsubstantiated reports surfaced that clowns were spotted trying to lure children into the woods. The craze has since ignited a national phenomenon, with scary clown sightings reported in more than two dozen states. While many were hoaxes, a handful of the incidents resulted in arrests: in Alabama, at least seven people face criminal charges of making a terrorist threat connected to “clown-related activity”. Such is the widespread terror of clowns that some people have even resorted to dressing as superheroes like Batman, to scare away any miscreants that could potentially harm children. Even McDonalds has even had to scale down its use of the world’s most famous clown to make sure people aren’t scared when walking into one of its restaurants.

But the recent creepy invasion isn’t hurting every company — Pornhub has reported a 210 percent increase in searches for ‘clown porn’. Yes, there’s a category by this name. Well done, humanity. Charles Darwin must be at peace.

As you can see, clown-related reaches have reached new heights since the first sightings earlier last month. But that’s not where Pornhub’s insights stop — they took a step further into the filthy shit people have been looking for exactly.

But what do people search for before they get the idea to indulge in some clown? Take a gander.

Ironically, ‘circus’ was the most popular keyword preceding the clown porn search, which isn’t an unexpected revelation. ‘Juggalette’ and ‘Harley Quinn’ are a bit more out of the ordinary — the former being a female fan of cult hip-hop duo Insane Clown Posse and the latter being a fictional character from the recent blockbuster movie Suicide Squad.

Thanks, Pornhub for once again putting the spotlight on humanity’s worst side.
