Fox Pulls ‘Family Guy’ Episode from Websites

A spokeswoman for Fox announced Tuesday that the network is removing a recent episode of “Family Guy” from Fox.com and Hulu.com due to Monday’s bombings in Boston

The episode features a flashback involving Peter Griffin running over Boston Marathon, runners in his car, telling sportscaster Bob Costas, ”I’ll tell ya, Bob, I just got in my car and drove it. And when there was a guy in my way, I killed him.”

Later in the episode, Peter meets a man whom he later finds out is a terrorist who plans to blow up a bridge. An edited clip has popped up on some websites fusing the two scenes, making it look like the explosion occurs at the marathon, leading some commenters to (incorrectly) imply that the show predicted Monday’s bombings.

“Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane tweeted, ”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 says it has no plans to repeat the episode anytime soon.
