Happy 150th episode, Family Guy!!
The often-controversial cartoon is once again coming under attack for its most recent, very special episode called Brian and Stewie, where Brian is cajoled by the infant into eating his poop, and then subsequent vom!
Tim Winter, the President of The Parents Television Council, says:
"It seems as though 'Family Guy' creator, Seth MacFarlane, carefully reviewed the legal definition of broadcast indecency and set out to violate it as literally as he could. Given the patently offensive depictions of one character eating excrement out of a diaper, then eating vomit, and finally licking the remaining excrement from a baby's bottom — while the baby expresses physical gratification from having his bottom licked — we believe that the broadcast decency law has been broken. We will also hold publicly accountable the corporate sponsors which underwrote this feces-eating broadcast, ironically a number of which were restaurants."
We're sure it's only a matter of time before the FCC files an official complaint!
Not that it's a shocker!
We couldn't even sit through the entire episode! It's pretty rough.
