Yesterday, YouTuber Mr. Obvious uploaded the video below which explains more about the situation.
From Know Your Meme:
Clown Pepe, also known as Honk Honk, is a depiction of Pepe the Frog wearing a rainbow wig and red clown nose, which is often accompanied by jokes with corny or cringeworthy punchlines meant to represent the phrase "Clown World." In February 2019, racist and anti-Semitic variations of the character named "Honkler" began appearing on 4chan's /pol/ board.

Pepe = racist
Clowns = racist
The “ok” sign = racist
Faking a hate crime to incite a race war = not racist
Ok. Just making sure we’re really that bass ackwards these days.
If you understand magachud/altright language you'd easily get they feel they have to fight degeneracy. And clown pepe (a meme i used to love until the Altright swooped in) is their idea of going crazy in a crazy world— hopeless wanderer (@thewargarurumon) April 9, 2019
