American Horror Story: Cult Episode Edited Because of Las Vegas Shooting

FX issues statement on tomorrow night’s episode of American Horror Story: Cult

American Horror Story: Cult is all about fear and divisiveness in politics. But the producers and the network are sensitive to the all-too-real trauma of current events. FX Networks issued the following statement regarding tomorrow night’s episode of American Horror Story: Cult.

 “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 (Tuesday, October 10, 10 PM ET/PT). 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+.”

American Horror Story: Cult season 7, episode 6, “Mid‐Western Assassin,” airs Tuesday, October 10, at 10 p.m. Eastern Time.
