(KRON) — Target is pulling at least some of its clown masks both in stores and online following a serious of creepy sightings across the nation.

A statement by the retailer said they’re removing “a variety” of clown masks, but it’s 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 also limiting community appearances made by Ronald McDonald until the craze is under control.

Target talked about the “current environment” in its statement, referring to the fact there have been clown-related threats in an least 20 states.

Many turned out to be hoaxes, but it’s still considered troublesome and annoying.
