Life New York The Bronx is flooded by Joker tourists By weekster Posted on 3 weeks ago 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Residents of the New York Bronx are tired of the tourists who are taking Instagram photos on ‘their’ stairs dressed as The Joker. Global News reports that. The staircase in question connects Shakespeare Avenue with Anderson Avenue and can be seen in a prominent scene in the blockbuster Joker. Influencers and YouTubers almost literally take on the role of Arthur Fleck, the cracked character from the film, played by Joaquin Phoenix. They put on a red suit and put on a white face-up and then make films, selfies or do dances. The stairs in the Bronx, which until recently were never overlooked, attract hundreds of people every day. In the meantime, the residents are sick and tired of thinking about an attraction: throwing water at tourists. Comedian Desus Nice advises them in a tweet to let everyone who goes up and down the stairs pay toll. They also get a piece of the monster hit, which has now yielded more than 650 million euros.
