Seth MacFarlane’s New Show Dads Willing To Be Called Racist For Laughs!

Dads

Seth MacFarlane and the FOX network have said “no arigato” to the Media Action Network for Asian Americans’ suggestion that they reshoot at least one scene of Dads — a scene the group finds offensive to Asians.

In the scene in question, the lead characters, two young white men, compel a female Asian employee to dress as a stereotypical sexy schoolgirl and giggle behind her hands to satisfy Chinese customers.

Wait, WHAT THE HELL is this show about? ‘Cause it sounds possibly racist, but maybe also hot?

We’re feeling very confused now.

FOX said:

“The series is based heavily on the executive producers’ own lives, and the relationships between the fathers and sons on Dads will continue to be the main driver of show’s comedic sensibility. Everyone involved with Dads is striving to create a series with humor that works on multiple levels and ‘earns’ its audaciousness.”

Inneresting.

We TOTES understand audaciousness — we pretty much WROTE the book blog on it — but in order for something not to be perceived as just a racial impropriety, it really does have to be funny. (Just ask Kate Gosselin.)

Maybe the Media Action Network for Comedy Writers is the group that should be getting fired up here?!? LOLz!!!

    How come whenever whites do anything others don't like, the word "racist" is used? But it is okay for Chinese Restaurants to employ only Chinese people (not racist?). It is okay for blacks to have NAACP, black caucuses, black Miss America, black scholarships, etc. It is not considered racist. But if whites do anything, people call it racist. People need to remember this country was founded by white Europeans. Others have been welcomed, but they weren't made to come here. Blacks even forget that it was black Africans that captured black Africans and sold them to whites as slaves. So, blacks started the slavery problem to make money in the beginning!!!!

    Re: Ed Charles

    oof. not disagreeing with lost of your comment. We also shouldn't be talking about ancestry. But "America is founded by White European, other's have been welcomed, but not made to come here?" Where did you learn your history, or are u just white soaked? America belongs to Native Americans, not wanting to mention they were Asians traveling from Bering Straight 5000 years ago. White Europeans, thought they reached India, took their land, murdered them, kicked them out of their settlements, and still has the balls to call them Indians. White Europeans were the ones welcomed, and committed genocide in return. Having said all that, get your history straight, and yes, people should chill out on the word "racist."
