'My mother told me to dress for the job that you want to have': Man in clown costume trolls Austin City Council over power outages

A recent power outage in Austin, Texas, resulted in huge bills for Austin Energy customers, leaving the Austin City Council to hear criticism from upset community members at a city council meeting.

One man took advantage of the public comment portion, ironically criticizing the Austin Energy company while wearing a rainbow wig, with clown makeup and clown attire.

"There needs to be accountability for what happened, you and I both know this," the man began.

"My mother told me to dress for the job that you want to have, and that's why I'm here today, because I would like to be the CEO of Austin Energy," the mysterious clown continued.

"We need leaders who align with our priorities, and right now, our number-one priority is fighting climate change," the man said, beginning a diatribe filled with liberal stereotypes. "We need to get zero by 2030, and honestly, if we are ever going to achieve these goals, you shouldn't be using power at all."

"Just last month I destroyed the gas stove that I own in a fire that I started, because I am firmly committed to saving the planet just like you. I will show that same commitment as the CEO of Austin Energy," the man said between deep breaths.

"I have pronouns in my Twitter bio, I also have Ukrainian flags in my Twitter bio, and due to my extensive qualifications and the fact that my priorities align so much with the city of Austin, as well as what I thought were past administrations in Austin Energy, I would like a salary between $350,000 to $500,000 a year, so that I can support my lifestyle, fund my cocaine habit, and care for my wife who has stage five testicular cancer."

"I also took a 23 and Me test and found out that I am 3% black, so not hiring me would be a literal act of violence," he continued.

"Anyway, if I could get a recommendation to be the CEO of Austin Energy, I would really appreciate it," he concluded before honking a clown horn.

Other Austin residents have been told that despite the majority of power outages being fixed, they may be responsible for the remainder of damages to get their power back on. Images posted by Austin Energy appear to indicate that while the company is responsible for damage to energy meters, the customer is responsible for the encasement, fuses, and circuit breakers.
