Tomas „Payaso Llantom“ Morales, Anführer einer Clown-Vereinigung in Mexiko, hat gegenüber Associated Press betont, dass die Clowns, die am Wochenende den ehemaligen Boss eines Drogenkartells über den Haufen geballert haben, keine echten Clowns gewesen seien. Gut zu wissen.
Leaders of clowns gathered for a convention in Mexico City said Wednesday they are saddened that a killer disguised himself as a clown to kill a drug lord last week, and insisted no true member of their profession would have committed the crime. […]
Clown leader Tomas Morales, a 21-year veteran of the trade who goes by the stage name "Payaso Llantom," said he was certain the killer was not a professional clown. He said clowns in Mexico, especially in outlying states, know each other and their costumes and makeup are individualized and recognizable.
"The people who do that, they're not clowns. I can swear on my mother's grave it wasn't a clown," said Morales, whose costume includes frizzy blue hair and a tiny top hat. "We are not like that ... we are nonviolent."
