American Horror Story - Latest Episode Censored
FX Censored Latest Episode for TV
The dreadful attack in Vegas last week affects our popculture as well. While the live panel of Marvel's The Punisher at New York Comic Con was cancelled last week, FX decided to cut the latest episode of American Horror Story due to recent events: Episode 7x06 (Mid-Western Assassin) contains an opening scene with a massive shootout and the network thought it would not be appropiate. But the uncut version is available via video on demand which appears to be a reasonable resolution.
FX also released a statemet regarding this matter:
“In light of the tragedy last week in Las Vegas, Ryan Murphy and the producers of American Horror Story: Cult have chosen to make substantial edits to the opening scene of tomorrow night’s episode. This opening, which was filmed two months ago and which portrays an occurrence of gun violence that has sadly become all too common in our country, contains a sequence that some viewers might find traumatic. Only the edited version of the episode will air on the FX linear channel, while the unedited version of the episode will be available on the VOD platform of your cable, satellite or telco provider, as well as on the FX Networks non-linear platforms, FXNOW and FX+.”
The episode aired on 10/10/2017 in the US. A comparison will be available soon.
