NAACP: Launch Federal Investigation of Racist Rodeo Clown

The NAACP isn’t clowning around.

The group is outraged after a rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair donned a mask of President Obama while an announcer riled up the crowed by suggesting that the bull should run down the clown, Opposing Views reports.

“The activities at the Missouri State Fair targeting and inciting violence against our president are serious and warrant a full review by both the Secret Service and the Justice Department,” NAACP State President Mary Ratliff said in a statement. “Incidents involving individuals acting out with extreme violent behavior in movie theaters, schools, churches, political appearances and outdoor events in general speaks volume to the irresponsible behavior of all the parties involved with the incendiary events at the Missouri State Fair.”

Turns out, the clown had been banned for life from rodeos.

The controversy has prompted the resignation of the head of Missouri’s rodeo-clown organization.
