Activist group hangs fake clowns dressed in KKK regalia from tree in Richmond, Va.
An activist group that identifies by the name of Indecline is taking credit for a display found in Richmond, Va.’s Joseph Bryan Park.
The display, which the group claims it has been planning since Spring 2017, showed a number of fake clowns dressed in Ku Klux Klan robes hanging from a tree by their necks. “If attacked by a mob of clowns, go for the juggler” — Indecline,” read a sign on one of them, reports WRIC.

Indecline released a statement saying that the park was chosen due to Richmond’s “infamous legacy of being the capital of the Confederate South.” This is the same group that claimed ownership of statues of a naked Donald Trump appearing in Manhattan’s Union Square and placing the names of black victims of police brutality on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Police are treating the display as a crime scene and are investigating any leads they may find.
