Seth MacFarlane’s ‘Family Guy’ pulls episode featuring Boston Marathon - VIDEO
Fox Network removed an episode of “Family Guy” due to its storyline
An episode of Family Guy, which aired on March 17, was removed from Fox.com after its storyline was deemed inappropriate following Monday’s tragic bombings at the Boston Marathon.
Fox spokeswoman Gaude Paez has said that the storyline features the character of Peter Griffin unwittingly detonating two bombs using a cell phone after befriending a terrorist. The episode also showed Griffin driving over his competitors in order to win the marathon.
YouTube users recently put together a video of clips from the episode to suggest that the show predicted the bombings at the Boston Marathon.
“Family Guy” creator, Seth MacFarlane, said it is 'abhorrent' to suggest that the show predicted or influenced Monday’s tragic bombings, reports The Daily Mail. MacFarlane tweeted on Tuesday, saying, 'The edited Family Guy clip currently circulating is abhorrent. The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims.'
Fox network has said that the episode has been removed from the website with no plans to re-air it.
