Default B & A of Pepper from American Horror Story: Asylum

Some were wondering if they were exploiting somebody afflicted with microcephaly

'American Horror Story: Asylum': What Pepper, Played By Naomi Grossman, Really Looks Like

Posted: 10/22/2012 12:54 pm EDT Updated: 10/23/2012 4:54 am EDT








Asylum" introduced audiences to Pepper, a murderous, somewhat friendly resident of Briarcliff.

One of the stranger looking residents of the asylum, Pepper frolicked around the yard trying to get Lana (Sarah Paulson) to play with her. This weekend, series co-creator Ryan Murphy tweeted a behind-the-scenes photo with the caption "Pepper knows all."

But do you know what the actress who plays Pepper really looks like? Check out Naomi Grossman without all the prosthetics and makeup.

"American Horror Story: Asylum" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on

I haven't been watching but think I get it.

This is what I'm "getting":

There are some viewers who thought the actress who plays a character on the show was really afflicted w/....microephaly.

In fact it's all makeup and she looks like the bottom pic.

Soo nobody has been overtly exploited although if in fact an actor had that affliction and had a job I'd think it was a good thing ....but but that's just my take.

Yes

If 'Pepper" was a real person/actress I'd admit to having duplicitous feelings--it's great she's getting work, but at the same time it would be sad because that work would be in a circus freak show kind of exploited way.
