Clowns of America International are accusing the FX hit, “American Horror Story” for promoting “clown fear.” The series 4th installment premiered this Wednesday on FX and features a killer clown character, played by John Cara Lynch. The masked stalker is in full clown makeup wearing a freakish ear to ear smile.
This season stars, old faces like Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Peter Evan’s and Emma Watson.
Glenn Kohlberger president of Clowns of America tells the Hollywood Reporter,
“Hollywood makes money sensationalizing the norm. They can take any situation no matter how good or pure and turn it into a nightmare.”
“Twisty the Clown,” is depicted as a serial killer. In the opening episode, Twisty appears on screen before he attacks a young couple. He attempts to make them laugh by showing a juggling trick, and then stabs the man to death. The woman tries to run but is caught and placed in a cage inside a school bus, next to a young boy. In Another instance Twisty attempts to make her and the little boy laugh by making balloon animals, only to fail and violently freak out.
Kohlberger, “doesn’t understand how something so innocent could be turned into something so evil. Clowns to killers, I choose not to play into any of it and the more attention we give it just gives it more fuel.”
