The Parent’s Television Council is again setting its sights on last week’s Oscar host Seth McFarlane, putting out a new petition letter this week to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences - urging them not to invite the Family Guy creator back as a host.
It could make little to no difference, since McFarlane has already said he won’t return as a host .
According to E! News, the Council had a strongly-worded description about McFarlane’s body of work on television, . It claims he outraged and offended “millions of viewers.” According to the report, the Academy has not responded to the petition, but has already commended McFarlane and the show’s producers on a “great job.”
The interactive PTC petition comes with tabs that allow signers to stream what it calls an “anti-Semitic,” “sexist” and “orgy” clip by McFarlane during last Sunday’s award show.
The PTC has already had McFarlane in its crosshairs, publishing amusingly-descriptive profiles on its website of McFarlane’s three animated creations on Fox, warning parents of a variety of vulgar themes.
