Target pulling some clown masks from shelves

(KRON)—Target is pulling at least some of its clown masks both in stores and online.

A statement says they’re removing “a variety” of clown masks leaving it unclear whether that means all of them.

The reason of course is the seemingly endless reports of clown threats across the country.

Home Depot took a similar step last month when it pulled a decoration called the “Scary Peeper Creeper” from its stores in Canada.

McDonald’s is limiting community appearances made by Ronald McDonald until the craze is under control.

Target talks about the ‘current environment’ reference to the fact there have been clown-related threats in an least 20 states.

Many turn out to be hoaxes, but it’s still considered troublesome and annoying. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
