American Horror Story: Cult Edits Gun Violence After Las Vegas Attack

American Horror Story: Ryan Murphy confirms graphic mass shooting scene was edited out

The latest episode of American Horror Story: Cult has been heavily edited following the deadly mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas last weekend.

On Monday, FX revealed that they were making essential changes to episode six of the now airing season Cult, adding: 'This opening, filmed two months prior and which portrays gun violence that has sadly become way too common in our country, includes a scene that some viewers might find traumatic'.

While only the edited version will air on the linear channel, FX said the unedited version will be available through its on-demand platforms.

An upcoming episode of American Horror Story depicts a mass shooting, but audiences won't see the original cut. In the wake of the horrific September 30 shooting in Las Vegas, which left 59 people dead and over 500 injured, many wondered if creator Ryan Murphy would delay showing the episode.

While American Horror Story isn't usually too concerned with sheltering audiences from scenes of violence, showrunner Ryan Murphy has decided to make an exception this season.

Murphy admitted that he struggled with the decision to rework the locked episode.

Hulu drops price of its entry-level plan
Netflix got a lot of attention last week by announcing that it would raise the price of its monthly subscription plans. Hulu is now running an ad campaign featuring Anna Kendrick (the "Pitch Perfect" movies) as part of its marketing push.

"It was meant to be an obvious anti-gun warning about society", Murphy noted at the New Yorker Festival. Suffice to say, it seems like they're making the right call here.

This season of American Horror Story, which stars Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, follows a Trump supporter who leads a murderous, cult-like group.

Do you think FX should air "Mid-Western Assassin"?

. How do you be sensitive?

It was recently reported that a scene was set to air during this week's episode of the FX horror anthology that featured a "crowd ambush scene" similar to the incidents of the Las Vegas atrocity.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan also explained that while he felt that he has the right to have the scene in the episode, it was being pulled out of respect and sensitivity to the victims. "But I felt great sympathy for people who were affected, certainly, and family members and loved ones and people who are upset about the way the world is", he said.
