In more than 20 states across the US, creepy clowns have been menacing neighborhoods, causing Target to pull clown masks nationwide "out of sensitivity" for the reported violence and threats being made.

The retailer limited its selection to one in-store option and 10 online ones and said that those kept in stock were less traditional and a less threatening image of a happy, cheerful clown, according to Reuters.

The first recent clown menacing started in August in South Carolina when children claimed that clowns were trying to lure them with money into the woods in Greenville County. The clown craze continued touching universities from the University of Miami to Penn State and more, as well as neighborhoods across the country. As the pandemonium continued, the scary clowns have been spotted near woods, on dark roads and even driving cars. Some have been reported being seen with knives or waving money at children.
