The fans of the show are concerned about the pasts of these actors and are claiming they will boycott the series if creators do not change their minds.

In the case of Lena Dunham, the celebrity was accused of being a sexual predator and of abusing her sister when the pair were children. This rumor came from Dunham's book where she admitted that when she was younger, she was curious about her sister's private parts. However, since then both Lena and her sister Grace have come forward with claims that headlines were false and painted the star in a terrible light.

As for Colton Haynes, the star did, in fact, cause a lot of controversy during Halloween of 2013 where he decided to paint his entire body black to dress up as Kanye West. The celebrity was accused of blackface and has since apologized for his actions profusely.

There has been no comment from either Haynes or Dunham about the situation. Their position with the show "American Horror Story" currently remains unclear. Show runners will have to make a statement in the upcoming weeks about their choice of casting if they want to keep a large portion of the show's fans.
