The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ Clowns have no love for AHS' Twisty!

Honey Buzz ~ Clowns have no love for AHS' Twisty!

Today in "Ow, my irony!" news, THR reports that professional clowns have no sense of humor when it comes to Twisty the Clown.


It shouldn't come as a surprise that co-creator Ryan Murphy isn't scared of clowns and had this to say about the popular character who is causing such a stir:  
"I'm much more afraid of Bloody Face [from Asylum] and Rubber Man [from Murder House],"  Murphy said, adding that the origin of Twisty, whose frightful mask resembles an exposed skull, will be revealed in the fourth episode. There's a big story that explains the clown and what he's doing that's based on an urban myth we uncovered,"
However, the president of Clowns of America International (LOL) Glenn Kohlberger isn't impressed. He can't quite figure out how something as sweet and well-meaning as clowning could have gone so wrong. “Clowns to killers,” he says. “I choose not to play into any of it. The more attention we give it just gives it more fuel. 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,' " Kohlberger says. 

Good luck with that, Glenn, clowns are fucked up.
