Target has quietly pulled some clown masks from its stores.

The decision was out of sensitivity for the "creepy clown" scare that is spreading across the nation.

Target has also edited down its clown assortment online. 

Police in several states have been dealing with threats and pranks related to people wearing clown masks.
