Target stops selling clown masks in stores and online
Halloween costume shoppers will no longer find any creepy clown masks at target. The big box retailer confirms it has pulled all clown masks and costumes from its store shelves and website, citing "sensitivity" to the recent "crazy clown" scare for its decision. Police in several states have been dealing with threats and pranks related to people wearing clown masks.
