Family Guy Unapologetically Insults Jewish Emmy Voters

Peter Griffin insults emmy voters

Family Guy wants to win a nomination in the best comedy series category at this year's Emmy Awards and isn't afraid to insult the voters to do it.

The show recently sent out mailers to Academy members that featured Peter Griffin asking for their vote, as it read:

"Come on, you bloated, overprivileged Brentwood Jews. Let is unto your little club."

The mailer was a little less offensive on the inside, where Stewie quipped:

"It’s a secret ballot. You can still tell people you voted for Modern Family."

LOL!

The animated series was the first of its kind to be nominated in the category in 2009 after Seth MacFarlane opted out of the best animated series category.

We're not sure how effective this year's campaign will be, but the effort obviously didn't go unnoticed!

Do U think MacFarlane and company went too far by insulting the affluent Jewish community or are they just having some harmless fun with Hollywood?

    "Do U think MacFarlane and company went too far by insulting the affluent Jewish community?"

    Being serious here…Have you ever watched the show? I'm guessing not. If you did, you would know the answer to this question.

    What difference does it make Perez? You've already laughed at it! Just thought I would point that out in case Seth's repulsive approach to humor does in fact have backlash, you won't post about it while acting like you're so offended.

    What if he did a joke with gays instead of jews, Perez. Would you still "ha" ?

    Maybe if Family Guy was still funny they could win. This mailer is the funniest thing MacFarlane & co. have produced in years.

    We've all as a society gotten way too sensitive. This is obviously tongue in cheek. People aren't being denied jobs or public funds because of these cartoons. News tip; we're allowed to laugh at ourselves once in a while.

    Well since the show is mainly written by Jewish people I wouldn't get myself into too much of a tizz over it.

    Meh uptight. It's a fact that Hollywood is mostly controlled by jews and jews receive special treatment. cough adam sandler cough too many to name.

    Simply uptight overly politically correct twats. Why is it whites and Christan are FAIR game to make fun of, especially rednecks but a "minority" is somehow special and exempt from that? Give me a break.
