Man Brings ‘Emotional Support Clown’ to Termination Meeting

A New Zealand man who suspected he was going to be fired prepared himself for the fateful meeting by hiring an “emotional support clown” to tag along.

Auckland resident Joshua Jack says he got the unique idea from the most unlikely source: his employer. He says an email he received from his boss — which asked him to come in for a meeting to discuss his “role with the company” — suggested he bring someone to support him. “I thought, it’s either a promotion or worse,” Jack says. “I thought it was best to bring in a professional — so I paid $200 and hired a clown.”

While the clown’s presence appeared to amuse his employers, Jack admits he was a little distracting. “It was sort of noisy, him making balloon animals,” he says. “So we did have to tell him to be quiet from time-to-time.” When Jack’s employers broke the expected bad news, the clown broke down in a fake crying fit. “I definitely recommend bringing Joe or another clown,” he says. “Highly recommended.”
