There's a specific reason Sarah Paulson attacked those clowns with a bottle of rosé during the "American Horror Story" season premiere
When it comes time to choose your weapon of choice battling evil demonic clowns that are trying to kill you, your first instinct is probably not to grab for a bottle of wine. But that’s what Sarah Paulson’s Ally did during the season premiere of American Horror Story: Cult. When staring down danger, instead of grabbing for a knife or some other sharp object, she grabs a bottle of rosé. Because, this is 2017.
It’s a funny moment in an episode full of CLOWN MURDER, and while you might have chuckled at the sight, there’s actually a reason Ally grabbed a bottle of rosé. American Horror Story showrunner, Ryan Murphy, has also been grabbing rosé, too.
During a Q&A session following a screening of the first three Cult episodes, Murphy discussed that this season was fueled by his own “wild increase in…anxiety” due to the ongoing political turmoil.
Art imitates life: Just as Murphy grabs for rosé, Ally grabs for it too. Murphy also spent the hours following the premiere of AHS tweeting about drinking rosé with Paulson, and honestly, #FriendshipGoals. Also, #WatchingAHSGoals.
Here’s to a season of so much more rosé, the new designated beverage of choice when it comes to American Horror Story.
