McDon­ald’s: Ron­ald McDon­ald keep­ing a lower pro­file

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

McDon­ald’s says Ron­ald McDon­ald is keep­ing a low pro­file with re­ports of creepy clown sight­ings on the rise.

McDon­ald’s Corp. said Tues­day that it is be­ing “thought­ful in re­spect to Ron­ald McDon­ald’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in com­mu­nity events” as a re­sult of the “cur­rent cli­mate around clown sight­ings in com­mu­ni­ties.”

The com­pany did not pro­vide any other de­tails about how of­ten its long­time red-haired mas­cot makes ap­pear­ances, or how that might change.

The burger chain’s de­ci­sion comes after a rash of pranks around the coun­try that have in­volved eerie clown sight­ings.

The re­ports have forced po­lice in some ar­eas to re­spond.
