“I just made the decision that I’m going to have all of that violence be shown for the most part off camera,” Murphy said Saturday at the The New Yorker Festival, when asked about airing the episode so close to the Las Vegas shooting. Murphy said he did it out of sympathy for the victims. But because the episode was locked, Murphy admitted struggling with the decision. “Should you air it? Should you not air it? How do you be sensitive?" he said. "My point of view was I believe I have the right to air it, but I also believe in victims’ rights, and I believe that now is probably not the week to have something explosive or incendiary in the culture because someone who was affected might watch that and it could trigger something or make them feel upset. So our decision was to re-edit it and I felt that that was the right move.” ALSO: Murphy says his favorite shows right now are The Crown and The OA.
