Thanks a LOT creepy clowns!! Now the original creepy clown, Ronald McDonald will have limited appearances. Due to the creepy clown phenomenon, Ronald has decided not to go out as much for the time being. A McDonald's spokesperson stated that they are being “thoughtful in respect to Ronald McDonald's participation in community events” as a result of the “current climate around clown sightings in communities.”

What do you think? Is this a ridiculous ploy to get attention due to the clown sightings, or is McDonald's being thoughtful?
