The Internet Is Trying to Make Pennywise The Clown A Gay Icon

The internet is full of strange and mysterious things and today is no different. Twitter has lit up with the notion that Pennywise the Clown from is really a gay icon who's dating the Babadook.

The internet has grown fond of making monsters from horror and assuming their LGBTQIA identity. Junes month of Pride was inundated with images of the Babadook after Netflix categorised the horror movie as a LGBTQIA film. Fans took it upon themselves to read the film as the Babadook's tale of "coming out".
