‘They took the money back out of my account.’ An Actress Said That She Received Negative Residuals From “American Horror Story”
by Matthew Gilligan
I guess that show business ain’t all it’s cracked up to be, huh?
Well, at least that’s what an actress named Raeden Greer talked about when she shared a video on TikTok addressing the fact that she actually received “negative” amounts of money for her work on American Horror Story: Coven.
Green starred in five episodes of the TV series and she showed TikTok viewers that she had two negative payments for residuals.
Seems a little bit fishy, don’t you think?
So what’s really going on here…?
Green said that she once got a residual check for a few hundred dollars and said, “A couple days later the production company canceled the check and they took the money back out of my account.”
Take a look at her video.

She shared a second video where she addressed a comment from a person who said that studios might do this if they previously overpaid or there were physical returns of home video.

Here’s what folks had to say.
One person said they’re stunned by this.
Another TikTokker made a comment about Ryan Murphy, creator of American Horror Story.
And this person shared what they think probably happened here.
I can now see why actors are striking. This is ridiculous!
