NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WIAT) — Target is no longer selling clown masks at stores and online.

The company says it is pulling the masks because of the creepy clown threats across the country.

Many of the recent clown threats and incidents have proven to be hoaxes, but others have led to arrests.

Home Depot took a similar step last month and pulled a Halloween decoration from its stores in Canada.
