Love it or hate it, there’s no doubt that the furry fandom continues to grow in size. Famous names from Insane Clown Posse’s Violent J to country star Lil Nas X have gotten fursuits, and there’s no doubt that Zootopia was extremely popular for a reason.
Furries have now appeared on various shows from CSI to Lucifer, with their fursuits being used as a special draw for specific episodes. It appears now that the incoming HBO Max limited series The Staircase wanted to do the same, but failed spectacularly while hurting some fursuiters they intended to hire in the process.
According to fursuiters hired as extras on the show, the production company, alongside Hylton Casting, misled those who agreed to be extras during a rave scene in the series, resulting in heavy financial losses, damages, and broken promises regarding their contracts.
