He's slated to be buried in a comically small coffin with an improbable number of other deceased clowns.

Wasn't this character terrifying even before Stephen King made it worse?

Yeah. He wrote that story because clowns are scary. And afterwords, he got lots of hatemail from clowns who blame him for tarnishing their reputation.
