Seth MacFarlane Speaks Out About Emmy Mailer Controversy

Seth MacFarlane responds to emmy controversy

And he doesn't feel the least bit guilty!

Was anyone expecting anything differently? Ha!

In an attempt to secure a nomination in the best comedy series category at this year's Emmy Awards, Seth MacFarlane and the rest of the Family Guy crew sent out mailers featuring Peter Griffin saying:

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

Definitely a tad bit offensive, but these guys knew that going in and just wanted everyone to have a good laugh (at their own expense). Comparing the joke to something he's heard from Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes, MacFarlane responded to the controversy by saying:

"I put it in the same category as Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes a few years ago—Hollywood must be able to laugh at itself. Hollywood is a town of very well-to-do folks who live very comfortably. They have a very comfortable lifestyle, they do what they love, there's not much that is bad in their life. So they should be able to laugh at themselves. If they can't, it's a rather sad thing."

It was a bold move, that's for sure. Let's see if it pays off for him.

Do U think Family Guy deserves a nomination for Best Comedy Series?

    I don't even see what's offense in that writing? Hollywood is an annoying group of some talented and many untalented people who seem to think they're above everyone else. Laugh at yourself…people will probably like you better.

    ACTUALLY it said "Let US INTO your little club." Dumbass.

    "Let is unto…" Is that some kind of dyslexia joke?

    Love this poster! Shows how self important Hollywood types are. They leaked this news to start venom against MacFarlane. Epic fail to the bloated, over privileged Brentwood Jews.

    Uh, fans of the show know Peter would TOTALLY say something like that. Chrissake, you can HEAR Peter saying it. Its a parody. Anyone offended has never seen the show, and needs to grow a sense of humor!
