The Strain The Strain

Apparently a worm crawling out of someone's body through their eye socket isn't what people want to see on their way to work in the morning — or at all, for that matter.

FX used such an image to advertise its upcoming horror series The Strain, and is now replacing several billboards after residents complained,  Entertainment Weekly reports.

Last week, Buzzfeed posted a roundup of Twitter complaints from Los Angeles residents about the billboard.
