TV confirms it: Redheads are evil

American Horror Story: Ginger slander?
Us gingers have had a lot to deal with in the reputation department. I blame Judas.

He was supposedly a redhead; and the reason why ginger have been burned at the stake, tortured for being in league with the devil and generally persecuted ever since.

You kill just one heavenly savior and just look what the consequences are!

And now, to add insult to injury, a new TV show is hit to set the screen this fall - the plot of which hinges around a creepy coalition of evil gingers.

American Horror Story features ill-fated ginger twins, a sinister redheaded maid with an evil agenda and a sexy auburn seductress who leads men to their demise. And this plethora of evil gingers is not a coincidence.

"That's a plot point," creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk revealed. "I'm glad you noticed that."

The Glee alumni explains: "It's all about something that happened to our lead character as a child that involves redheads."

And although Murphy and Falchuk claim "We love gingers," there's one more travesty being committed. Beautiful star Alexandra Breckenridge - who plays the eponymous redhead siren - isn't even a real ginger: She dyes it.

Not only do they besmirch our name - they don't even have the decency to put real gingers on screen to do so.

I've also heard King David was red haired and Esau. Never heard that about Judas...hmmm.

I also read in some accounts that Gengis Khan was a red head. How awesome is that? the most influential military leader the world has seen (and very tolerant too!) was a ginger!
