Ronald McDonald is keeping a low profile these days because of the creepy clown sightings



McDonald's says Ronald McDonald is keeping a low profile these days because of all the creepy clown sightings across the country. 

The company said Tuesday it's being "thoughtful in respect to Ronald McDonald's participation in community events" as a result of the "current climate around clown sightings in communities."



McDonald's Corp. didn't say how often Ronald McDonald typically makes appearances or how that will change. 

The company's decision comes after pranks nationwide that have involved creepy clowns. In some areas the police have had to respond to the sightings.
