Clown crush: Pennywise

Internet's new boyfriend is the horrifying flesh-eating clown from Stephen King's It. No, we are not talking about Bill Skarsgard, the actor who plays Pennywise, the multidimensional evil clown. We are talking about the actual clown you see in the It posters, or in the movie if you've seen it. Go grab a Bible or something.

People actually have some serious hots for Pennywise, who is apparently the Fawad Khan of clowns. Yes, you can scream now, Pennywise would probably like it. Just to put things in perspective, the 27-year-old Skarsgard brother, Bill, who is sibling to none other than Tarzan and True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard, is not the one Twitter or Tumblr is obsessing with. Sure, he is hot, and looks better without makeup. But the OG of all attention right now is Pennywise.

"I would absolutely 100% without a single doubt in my mind smash the everloving f**k outta the new pennywise from IT (2017)," wrote somebody on Tumblr.

"If people want to fantasize about fucking a demonic clown entity leave them and their thirst in peace. it’s not hurting nobody," wrote another user. "I wonder if Stephen King knows people are attracted to Pennywise?" tweeted somebody.

People are also shipping Pennywise with the gay supernatural icon Babadook, because this is just the kind of world we are living in, okay? Deal with it.
