Oh God. Knowing Ryan Murphy, she'll be a sassy bitch and her obesity will be grossly fetishized or an excuse for characters to call her horrible names.

Although last season of AHS was pretty great, this show is very disrespectful to those who look different, whether by mental or physical deformity. Outside of last season's Alma, Murphy's black female characters tend to be ridiculous stereotypes with nonsensical or nonexistent storylines.

I hope the new season proves me wrong, but I'm anticipating the worst for her.
