All those creepy clown sightings might just be affecting big business.
Target has decided to remove clown masks from its shelves just a few weeks before Halloween.
The retailer made the decision after a slew of reported incidents over the last few months involving clowns attempting to lure children into the woods.
Given the current environment, we have made the decision to remove a variety of clown masks from our assortment, both in stores and online.
A Target representative told ABC News the stores began removing some of the clown masks from stores and its online selection last week due to "sensitivity to the issue at hand."
The creepy clown craze has lasted more than a month and has led to sightings in more than two dozen states. According to Time magazine, the craze recently spread to Canada and parts of Europe.
Last week, McDonald's even announced that its mascot, Ronald McDonald, will temporarily stop making appearances at community events because of the current clown craze.
The clown sightings have forced McDonald's to limit Ronald McDonald appearances. When change our lives like that, the clowns have won.— Jon Acuff (@JonAcuff) October 11, 2016
