it’s from the SAME episode, you can download it on the internet

yeah, showing people mangled and crushed and joking about remote bombs is really funny, I bet the parents of that 8 year old boy are really laughing at that, this filthy disgusting show should be taken off the air

even if it’s a “coincidence”, it shows how stupid and in bad taste this sick humor is broadcast, kids watch that show

I wish the police would take in Seth MacFarlane for questioning and torture the hell out of him, ask him if he finds the pain funny, he sure finds the pain of others funny

Let’s not bash Family Guy now because “kids watch this show” when clearly it is not appropriate for kids to be watching and any parent who allows their kid to watch it is an idiot

You do know how long it takes to make one of these f***ing episodes right? You ever think that was done BEFORE the bombings? Or is logic too much of a foreign concept to you?

The Family Guy is an adult cartoon and anyone who would let their child watch it should have their child taken away from them. This cartoon was made before the bombing and they obviously didn’t know someone would bomb the Marathon. Wow you really are out there LOL.

Yes, this is an absolute tragedy, but it has come to my attention that 1 Family guy episode takes a long time to make, probably between 9 to 10 months, then you have to wait for it to air which is additional few months. So this looks like a coincidence, and for Seth choosing the Boston marathon, probably because that race is well known and annual. No one should be joking and making videos about this right now. And blaming Seth, who didn’t have anything to do with it is not helping either.
Can we just pray for the victims and try help anyway we can? That would be better and let the US government look for the person responsible.

Do you really think it takes months to make an episode, maybe a few weeks. South Park does everything within 1 week.

South Park uses Flash Animation, which can be thrown together in 3 days, Family Guy uses traditional animation, which is performed by a sweatshop of animators in Korea and takes about 6 to 9 months to make. That’s why traditional animation can’t comment on current events as easily as South Park can. Hell, South Park can crank out an episode faster than live-action most studios can do live-action (with the exception of talk-shows).

Like that cartoon that aired in spring 2001 with the twin towers in smoke in the background… ummm, terrorists are copying cartoons.

These were edited together from 2 SEPORATE SCENES IN THE SAME EPISODE. I REPEAT THEY EDITED TOGETHER 2 SEPORATE SCENES GUT THEY ARE REAL AND FROM TH SAME EPISODE! Hoax? i don’t think so because these are actually scnes from a family guy episode 3 weeks ago depicting people being murdered at the bosten marathon…and being Seth Mcfarline actually created the episode depicting murdering people at the bosten marathon what kind of hypocrite does that make him calling it adhorent? This is not a hoax…these were actual scenes first shown on march the 17th 2013. Whoever posted this is trying to make a media epidemic to try to keep people from noticing the obvious truths of this situation…

“The video, which is quickly making its way around the internet, makes it look like Peter intentionally killed runners at the marathon by setting off two explosions — which is absolutely not what happened.”

oh really?? because I care WHAT HAPPEND IN FAMILY GUY?? really? I don’t give a damn what happened in family guy, the fact that those TWO SCENES are IN THE DAMN EPISODE 3 weeks BEFORE the incident happened is FISHY ITSELF. Again, it doesn’t matter WHAT exactly happened in family guy, all you need is those 2 scenes. This article is just a PRO-ZIONIST agenda. Scum.
