Family Guy Emmy Flyer: Offensive or Hilarious?

at . Comments

Family Guy has taken home five Emmy Awards, but never one for Outstanding Comedy Series.

Will Seth MacFarlane and company change that via their latest campaign flyer? It's unlikely, but it's at least creating quite a stir around the Internet. You can see why:

Pretty much on par for a series whose Family Guy quotes take aim at every religion, race and party? We'd say so. But not all agree. Says one anonymous television executive to E! News:

"While I think Family Guy is a genuinely funny show. We all - including this 'Brentwood Jew' - need to think twice about this kind of humor. Stereotyping any particular ethnic group is just not cool and can lead others (with the wrong intentions) to feel a certain license to take shots. Surely Seth [MacFarlane] has better stuff than this."

Where do you stand on this Family Guy flyer?

Family Guy Quotes

Hi, I'm Wilford Brimley and I have diabetes. It hurts me to pee and it causes me to be short with my family. I can't sleep at night. The other day I stubbed my toe and took it out on the dog. And two weeks ago I ran out of vanilla ice cream and struck my wife. Then I find out my wife has been dead for six years. Who the hell did I hit?
