INDECLINE published a video on Wednesday of several clowns being assembled, dressed in KKK robes, and hung from a large tree. The art collective, who is also responsible for unveiling naked statues of Donald Trump, hung the effigies in a Richmond park early Wednesday morning.
The "faux Klansmen" were found hanging in Joseph Bryan Park wearing clown wigs and big shoes. A sign was found hanging on one of the effigies:
"If attacked by a mob of clowns, go for the juggler."
A spokesperson from the Richmond police says they will be investigating the display. Since its discovery and initial reaction from the public, it has been taken down.
The video includes footage of the effigies being assembled by people in masks and dialogue from old episodes of the "Superman" radio show.
The "Ku Klux Klowns," as the group has dubbed their display, are in response to the "White Nationalist uprising in the United States," according to their statement. "The park was chosen because of it was the location of a slave rebellion in 1800."
According to their website, INDECLINE is "an American Activist Collective founded in 2001." Their group is made up of "graffiti writers, filmmakers, photographers, and full-time rebels and activists."
All of the proceeds from their online sales go towards funding their new projects, which means more Trump statues and altered billboards for us to enjoy.
