Seth MacFarlane Defends Jewish-Based Emmy Campaign

by at . Comments

Seth MacFarlane has a message for those who take issue with his show's unusual Emmy Award campaign, which includes a flier that pushes for Family Guy with the following lines: "Come on, you bloated, overprivileged Brentwood Jews. Let us into your little club."

Chill.

Comparing the joke to Ricky Gervais hosting the Golden Globes, the series creator told E! News:

"Hollywood is a town of very well-to-do folks who live very comfortably. They have a very comfortable lifestyle, they do what they love, there's not much that is bad in their life. So they should be able to laugh at themselves. If they can't, it's a rather sad thing."

And, as countless Family Guy quotes have made clear over the years, the sitcom isn't above poking fun at everyone and everything.

What do you think of the above poster? Does it go too far?
