Video Claims "Family Guy" Predicted Boston Marathon Bombings, Seth MacFarlane Says Video is Abhorrent

Posted: April 17th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Video Claims "Family Guy" Predicted Boston Marathon Bombings, Seth MacFarlane Says Video is AbhorrentSubmit Comment
Back on March 17th, "Family Guy" premiered an episode titled "Turban Cowboy," which has two scenes that are completely unrelated to each other, but when spliced together make it seem that the show predicted the Boston marathon bombings.

The first scene has Bob Costas asking Peter how he won the Boston marathon. In the episode, Peter accomplished this by driving over runners with his car, but a YouTube user cut to a scene which has Peter calling a terrorist and accidentally detonating two bombs. In the episode, those bombs blow up two bridges, but the edited clip makes it seem that Peter detonated bombs at the marathon.

In just over a day, the video has been watched almost 400,000 times, which is why "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane updated his Twitter account to let his fans know that he finds the video disgusting. He wrote: "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 has removed the episode from its website and Hulu. It's also not planning to air it in the future. Watch the video below.

People are dumb. They'll try to make a conspiracy theory out of everything.

Uh, whatever. Alex Jones already "broke" this "news" item. Nothing to do with movies whatsoever. Unless we discover the bomber was Sean Penn or dressed as Bane.

You know, if you fold a five dollar bill just-so, you can see Daniel Day Lewis planting explosives at the Boston marathon. Coincidence?

I'm actually surprised at the newer family guy episodes, seems like they are trying a lot harder to stay relevant with an added shock value to each episode, but it still hasn't changed much. The last few weeks had its moments, like when Peter has a falcon for a pet, or when he gets hooked on skydiving. It's always funny when he buys some crazy new animal...

About the Boston Marathon, some weird sh*t happened that day, and there are many theories, but no one seems to know a damn thing about it.
I liked a couple of the conspiracy videos about the bombing: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=356412027813725

Big deal. And when you fold a dollar bill just right it looks like two buildings exploding, or so I read on some wackjob conspiracy site.

Why did MGM remove the clip? Isn't Family Guy a FOX production? And have they not heard of Fair Use, or does their fear of lawsuits trump copyright law?

Ah, the abuse I would visit upon the world if only I had the money and power...

Lol.. f*cking losers out there.. Like did you guys know Osama was behind the bombing! I honestly heard a guy say this...

They've arrested a suspect.

ABC is still running behind the news.

Now they're saying there's no suspect arrest.

Yeah the latest seems to be that they have a suspect, but have not arrested him.

Innocent people are killed by these bombings, yet wackjobs who have absolutely nothing better to do than to come with conspiracy theories about this and other similar tragedies go on living. Talk about injustice.
