Neither are clowns. They're just vaguely disturbing, but mostly harmless. Here in the US, our "clown" is deeply disturbing in (many) very specific and concrete ways and by no means harmless. Calling him a clown is an insult to clowns — and I don't even like clowns.
Clowns at least have some skills (juggling, unicycle riding, makeup, knowing when not to talk).
