Fox Pulls Boston Marathon-Tinged Family Guy Episode in Wake of Monday's Attack
A recent Family Guy episode that shows Peter mowing down Boston Marathon runners with his car has been yanked from Fox.com and Hulu in the wake of Monday’s terrorist attack, TVLine has confirmed.
The move, first reported by The Associated Press, comes after an edited version of the episode fusing that scene with one involving Peter inadvertently detonating bombs from his cell phone surfaced online, incurring the wrath of series creator Seth MacFarlane.
“The edited Family Guy clip currently circulating is abhorrent,” he tweeted. “The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims.”
