Red Dead Online Players Dress Up As Clowns To Protest Rockstar Lack Of Updates
Red Dead Online players are expressing their frustrations with Rockstar Games lack of updates by dressing up as clowns in a protest that might take some explaining to make sense. While Rockstar Games has continued to make small tweaks like new challenges to the game, the last major content update came back in December 2019 with Moonshiners.
It all started on the community Discord of the Red Dead Online and Red Dead Fashion subreddits. Following a fashion competition last month to the theme of Saint-Denis that went pretty well, they decided to do another. This time around the topic is The Travelling Circus. “Since we’re all clowns for believing we’ll get an update, it’s fitting that we dress up as them in-game too”, a mod writes in the Discord to explain the reasoning.

From there, the community began filling servers with clowns and documenting their antics.
It’s been seven months since the release of Moonshiners, the last update to Rockstar’s Wild West multiplayer adventure Red Dead Online, and the players are starting to get a little antsy.
“Since we’re all clowns for believing we’ll get an update, it’s fitting that we dress up as them in-game too!” the Travelling Circus fashion contest post says. The meet-ups have further mobilised the Red Dead Online community, which plans to hold a major cross-platform clown event next Monday, July 20.
