Family Guy has been known to push the boundaries, but even they wouldn’t go this far!
Unfortunately, some people think Seth MacFarlane and his cartoon were insensitive about the recent tragedy as a newly edited clip from the show has gone viral and upset many!
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 episode with those scenes has since been pulled and Seth took to Twitter to address the video:
The edited Family Guy clip currently circulating is abhorrent. The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims.
