Seth MacFarlane isn't anti-Semitic. He's an anti-Semitic schmuck.

Hey I'm just kidding. See, I'm being satirical. I'm paying the part of The Offended Guy of Jewish Origin.* I know Seth MacFarlane is laughing, too. Otherwise, he'd be taking offense and therefore, acting like everything he purports to hate.

See, a couple days ago, MacFarlane took to his Twitter to post this ad, with the line "Here it is-- the Emmy Ad The trades refused to run." Maybe they did refuse it, or maybe they never presented it and it was a story the PR peeps cooked up just to get everyone's panties in a wad.

So far it's worked. Most of the Jewish blogs and Perez Hilton took the bait of course and howled "bigot," "hater," etc.

MacFarlane's race-baiting humor is nothing new. Hell, we've seen it for almost a decade now. We're used to it. And we have a half century of history from comedians like Lenny Bruce and Don Rickles and Red Foxx and Richard Pryor and Archie Bunker and Andrew Dice Clay.

Oh and we also have seen it a few times in advertising.

What's more interesting to me--beyond how bitter MacFarlane seems to be that he hasn't won an Emmy-- is how uninspired the joke is. Really? "Jews Control The Media?" That joke is low hanging fruit; it ranks up there with 'ever notice how bad the airplane food is these days." It's kind of sad.

So okay, he managed to get some publicity out of it. None of it good. And anyone who defends it risks being labeled a bigot. Will this up his chances of winning an Emmy?
I'm going to say "no."

So Seth, listen. Keep trying, baby. If you come up with a fresh idea next year, maybe we'll upgrade you from schmuck to putz.

    I like Family Guy as much as the next guy, I'm all for freedom of expression, free speech and all that. I think he's just killing that joke though, one that is of bad taste and was never funny in the first place. I thought his anti-semitic jokes were there for a purpose, like to open peoples' eyes to some of the bigotry that exists in society today. The more I watch the show, the more I feel he is just flogging a dead horse. Those jokes are very unitelligent, and it kind of ruins a perfectly funny show for me. When did it become ok for people to mock people based on race, I thought that was a thing of the past that we got past. I thought we had moved on from that, society had progressed, no? By the way I am not Jewish, i just believe in decency and respect.

    While you're busy being needlessly offensive, can you please tell us what makes this ad brilliant? Seeing as how it's an ad blog and all?

  • lmfao yea b/c "kidsleepy" isnt anonymous you stupid fake fag's picture
    lmfao yea b/c "... (not verified)

    First off, youre an asshole, and "half breed" is a pathetic unfunny retarded lame ass name for yourself kid.

    And yea, youre CLEARLY a kid, and SHOULD be "offended" b/c its NOT funny, nor is it "appropriate" or even remotely cute.

    It's fuckin racist, sad, pathetic, tiny dicked bullshit from a guy whose probably gay and has a small penis, and who is CLEARLY anti-semetic.

    Heyyy, look at me, I can make retarded, disrespectful, racist, anti-jewish/anti-semetic jokes, but I mean ya know, it's only a joke b/c it's a cartoon. Talk about "cowardly" - lol. Seth is a fag who is a sissy who hides behind his gay ass cartoon so that he can push bullshit stereotypes. His shit stopped being funny about a fuckin DECADE AGO.

    I'm half Jewish, and in REAL LIFE, I'd punch that faggit in the face just like I would you.

    And "low hanging fruit" - lol NO. It's DISRESPECTFUL, RADICAL, INAPPROPRIATE BEYOND BELIEF, AND MARGINALIZING AN ENTIRE RACE just so he can sell a couple episodes on TV. No WONDER his ass got cancelled like twice now. How dare you even TRY and justify it as simply "low hanging fruit". No its NONSENSICAL bullshit that has no place in actual real world society. And it's not even true anyways. It's just plain fuckin stupid.

    Second, youre tryin to list Dice as a "comedian" - LOL. Yea if cursing and being an asshole makes you funny, then I guess 100 million americans are comedians. Don Rickles is a talentless hack too lmfao.

    And lastly, Simpsons DESTROYS "Family Guy" for 1 big reason - TALENT. Matt Groening created Futurama too. Their cast has been nominated SEPARATELY for Emmy's and Oscars. Family guy uses bullshit, sad ass controversy to sell his lame shit. He, and IT, isn't witty, or thought provoking, its just STUPID. It panders to stupid people. You KNOW the guys CLEARLY racist when his movie, which has NOTHING to do with fuckin family guy, opens with the line "so boston kids can beat up on jewish kids". That TURNED ME OFF completely. I stopped watching, b/c thats fuckin retarded. He's not clever, he's just an asshole who needs to be burnt in an oven. And he's not even talented lol. EVERY other venture he's done has FAILED miserably.

    Or in roasts, when he's so fuckin nasty and anti semetic and anti-black.

    He comes off as a TOTAL hypocrite douchey sissy in interviews; which is typical of narcassists who are actually insecure in real life. He's not even a half decent person, he's an ASSHOLE. He ACTS the part of "normal" guy half the time; but you can tell from his assholeish material that inside he's a bigoted tiny dicked loser who tries to reflect his own issues off of himself and onto others.

    If I ever see him (or you) I'm serious when I say I'd probably deck the shit out of him. Chop off his microdick and shove it down his gay ass mouth. Guy's probably got a 2 inch penis for real.

    Jealous little dicked fag is what he is. Jewish people are just more successful and pious, so he thinks I guess he can take the easy way out and try and fake attack a group of people who are some of the most PEACEFUL unassuming on EARTH. Lmfao, And he's got closet homosexual written all over him too.

    Atleast the writers of South Park (who are childish assholes too) created the movie which had SERIOUS production value and was praised by actual Broadway writers alike for its musical attributes and numbers. And at the VERY tiny least, they usually have some sort of thought provoking message in some of their episodes.

    Dear lmfao:

    this is an ad site. not some troll hang out. if you want that, go to reddit. it's no longer cool to be offensive.

    by the way, some of us can really see i.p addresses. and it doesn't give you the right to heap abuse on people you don't know from Schenectady.

    i'd cut it out now if i were you.

    I do, too. I know offensiveness is a certain brand of humor, i.e. Sarah Silverman, and MacFarlane. I get it. But this wasn't in the context of a show-- this was an ad that was supposed to run in the trades that got rejected--or so it was reported. It may very well have been a cheap ploy to get an ad out there without having to buy the media, too. Either way, it's not attacking a specific group to show how dumb the attacker is, like Archie Bunker from the 70's. This ad comes across from the voice of a guy who has a really top rated show, makes a lot of money, but is still teed off he hasn't won an award for it.
    could there be a bigger first world problem then that?

    What's with Seth MacFarlane's digs at Jews?

    by Dan Bloom

    My mailbox gets its share of emails from people who find Ricky
    Gervais's tasteless Anne Frank jokes to be, well, tasteless. I've
    written about him before and the comments flew left and right, pro and
    con, and sometimes as many as 100 comments followed a Gervais post

    Recently, I received an email from a Jewish man I did not know,
    somewhere in America, and he wrote:

    "I want to thank you Mr. Bloom, for your open letter to Rickey Gervais
    for his consistent usage of Anne
    Frank (and the Holocaust in general), in his 'comedic' routines. It
    seems no one in Hollywood has the nerve (or seems to care), to call him out
    on it.

    "The same goes for Seth Macfarlane, the creator of 'Family Guy,' who
    appears to be obsessed with Jews and Jewish stereotypes -- I didn't
    see even one report in the media about Macfarlane's non-sensical dig
    at Jews when he hosted Saturday Night Live -- I think for the first
    time -- last September.

    ''Thank you, sir, for doing what seemingly no one else wants, or
    cares, to do, which is to speak up against tasteless and seemingly
    antisemitic comedy routines that routinely appear in America and
    Britain, and I guess probably Australia, too, whereever English is
    spoken and Jews have made their homes."

    Well, to be honest, I had not seen the MacFarline hosting gig at SNL
    in September, Episode Episode 38.01, accorfding to sources, but there
    were indeed a few reports online about it, accompanied by the usual
    comment sections pro and con.

    Let's take a look and if you see anything untoward here, give me a
    holler in the comments section here. Always love to hear from readers,
    pro and con, one way or the other. I am not on any crusade of any
    kind; I just feel that some comedians go too far in their pokes at
    "others," be they Blacks, Jews, Hispanics, women, gays or even climate

    "After the mass exit of Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Abby Elliott
    over the summer, there was a little worry as to whether this might be
    one of those seasons where SNL dips in quality,'' Ross Bonaime wrote
    in his review. ''But to be frank, Wiig’s impressions were getting a
    bit tiresome, Samberg’s Digital Shorts had been fumbling towards
    mediocre and Elliott -- well I guess they don’t need a Zooey Deschanel
    impression anymore. “Seth MacFarlane/Frank Ocean” got the 38th season
    off to an exciting start, even without those three."

    "Even though Seth MacFarlane makes himself the focus of his shows, it’s
    rare to see him perform as just himself. MacFarlane’s opening
    monologue felt a bit safe, as he stuck to impressions, singing and
    Jewish jokes, yet MacFarlane was actually a surprisingly good
    first-time host, even if he wasn’t given too much heavy lifting."

    Jewish jokes on SNL? Spoken by Seth MacFarlane? The comments came in
    pro and con, of course, which is par for the course in this day and

    One commenter wrote, a bit angry and flabbergasted and at wit's end,
    saying: "Seth Macfarlane does Kermit the Frog: 'I love being in New
    York, except for all the Jews!' What a jerk! I hope all Jewish
    directors and producers, including Lorne Michaels, blacklist him in
    the future. What a waste of a great talent."

    This was followed by a second commenter noting: "It was a joke. I
    think he knows that Lorne Michaels is Jewish."

    A third commenter said: "This is, after all, the first time Seth has
    ever said something negative about a group of people."

    Fourth comment: "Just about everyone who works on 'Family Guy' is
    Jewish. Haha, it was a joke."

    I'm no prude. I like to laugh. I do think that in general Americans tend to have thin skin when it comes to their own causes. That said, I don't think there is anything humorous or original about invoking stereotypes for the purposes of making money.

    I can't speak to all the voices mentioned in the article, but at least Archie Bunker and Richard Pryor were attempting to make a point. What's MacFarlane's point? That he can make a lot of money without actually being creative?

    I've always thought there was some irony in how easily MacFarlane throws around the word whore. MacFarlane is a whore.
