A CLOWN has been busted using Steve Jobs' stolen Ipad, using the device as part of his routine.
Children's entertainer Kenny the Clown was caught by cops using the stolen Ipad, which was taken from Jobs' home on Wednesday, after he used the tablet's Itunes app to play the Pink Panther theme song, the Mercury News reports.
Kenny, real name Kenneth Kahn, was unaware that he was using a stolen Ipad, as it was given to him by his friend Kariem McFarlin, the man who was charged with breaking into the late Apple CEO's California home. McFarlin allegedly gave another Ipad to his daughter, although both devices have now been returned to the Jobs family following McFarlin's arrest.
"It would be like getting a football from Joe Montana that was stolen out of his house," said the 47-year-old professional clown. "It's bizarre; it's really bizarre."
He added that McFarlin isn't "any type of menace", saying, "He's a nice guy who made a horrible, horrible decision. I wish I could ask him: 'What were you thinking?'"
McFarlin is set to go to court on Monday, where he will be charged with stealing $60,000 worth of gadgets and jewellery from Jobs' home.
"Before the public sees him as this horrible monster, I'd like to hopefully think we can somehow get across that he just made the worst mistake of his life," Kahn added. µ
