American Horror Story: Freakshow Casts World's Shortest Woman

American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy recently tweeted another clue to the new season:

Twenty-year-old Jyoti Amge is just over 2 ft. tall and hold the Guinness World Record for being the world’s shortest woman.

Many have concerns that Murphy is including people with actual physical anomalies, and that including them in a show with the word “Freakshow” in the title may be insensitive. I, for one, don’t agree with the critics.

I did recently catch the reality show on Netflix about the Venice Beach freakshow, and I think that guy is an exploitative scum bag.

AHS, on the other hand–even through it’s harsh imagery and subject matter–has never come off as offensive to me.

I guess we’ll find out soon!
