Target pulls clown masks from store shelves


Target has begun pulling clown masks from its stores shelves just weeks before Halloween.

The decision comes after multiple reported incidents of creepy clowns popping up around the country.

“We had a few masks in stores, which we began to pull last week,” a media representative of Target told ABC News. “We also have edited down our assortment online. You’ll still find clown masks there, but we made the decision to pull back on the number.”
