American Horror Story Angers Clowns of America International
Real Clowns Are Upset About American Horror Story's Killer Clown
You may be loving this season of American Horror Story, which just premiered last week, but a group of real-life clowns is not amused. Glenn Kohlberger, the president of Clowns of America International, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about how Freak Show's portrayal of a murderous clown named Twisty is bad for their industry: "Hollywood makes money sensationalizing the norm. They can take any situation no matter how good or pure and turn it into a nightmare . . . We do not support in any way, shape or form any medium that sensationalizes or adds to coulrophobia or 'clown fear.'" This is completely understandable, given that people have recently taken to the streets to creepily wander around in full clown gear at night. What's your take on the situation? Are you terrified of clowns and is American Horror Story part of the problem, or are these clowns overreacting?
