Family Guy has been known to push the boundaries, but even they wouldn’t go this far!
But the real story is that Family Guy aired an episode on March 17th that involved Peter Griffin driving through the Boston Marathon in order to win it. Also in that episode, there is a completely different scene where Peter befriends a terrorist who is planning to blow up a bridge.
The two scenes are NOT back-to-back and were NOT a prediction of anything that happened at the marathon, just an unfortunate coincidence.
Now, a video of those scenes has been edited with them placed together to make it appear as though the bombing took place at the marathon.
The edited Family Guy clip currently circulating is abhorrent. The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims.

Check out the clip (below) of the edited version.
We're actually speechless. In what world would anyone put this together and think it was okay? In what twisted, warped mind is this funny?
Deplorable. Disgusting. Shameful.
