Pennywise the Clown

Coulrophobia (from Greek word kōlobathristēs, meaning "stilt-walker") is the fear of clowns. This is one of the most common phobias in the world. This fear is often due to bad childhood experiences with clowns, or even gloomy history involving clowns. Sufferers would avoid going to circus, where clowns are often seen.

Famous people who suffered from coulrophobia are Sean Combs and Johnny Depp.
