FX replacing gross, graphic 'The Strain' billboardsAdd to Favorites | The Strain
After social media outcry -- not only are the images icky for grown-ups to think about, they're also potentially terrifying for children (and also quite distracting for drivers) -- the network says it's taking them down.
"We are in the process of replacing the key art for 'The Strain' on outdoor media in several locations," a FX spokesman says in a statement to Variety.
No word on how many ads and which locations will be changed, but drivers within eyeshot of the gross signs will likely be pleased with the news.
"The Strain" premieres July 13 on FX.
