Seems the scary clown craze is not only in America.

There is an issue with people dressing up and frightening people in England, but they pissed off the wrong person: Batman.

Someone in Cumbria, located in North West England, has been chasing off those dressed as clowns in the hopes of making children feel safe, according to The Telegraph.

A photo of Batman in action and a video surfaced of the British Caped Crusader telling kids itís safe.

A group calling itself Cumbria Superheroes is behind the effort. According to The Telegraph, the group didnít form to act as vigilantes so much as to reassure children there is nothing to be scared of concerning the clowns.

ďAs for you clowns, if you want to scare someone, why donít you try and scare me,Ē the man dressed as Batman says in a video posted to Facebook.

There has been numerous issues with the sudden clown craze in America, which has resulted in multiple arrests and clown costumes being banned from some schools for Halloween.
Why don't we have a Batman icon?

Having worked in the UK for 6 months, I have a hunch that some young blue-collar-types might get into a little confrontation with "creepy clowns"...
