Target pulls clown masks from stores, online after recent scares

Target has pulled almost all of the clown masks from their stores and online due to recent scares nationwide, a Target spokesperson confirmed Monday.

Meanwhile real clowns are lashing out at the pranksters for impersonating clowns.

Some Halloween costume chains have reported a spike in evil clown attire since the craze started a few months ago, but Target is the first to decline the profits.
