A British clown has had the smile wiped off his face after being told he couldn't use balloons in his act because children might be allergic to latex.

He said he was also told by one venue he could not twist balloons into the shape of guns for fear of encouraging youngsters to commit violence, although swords were deemed acceptable. Breitbart
