by at . Comments

Fox has pulled a Family Guy episode from the Internet for a very understandable reason:

It depicts its main character causing several deaths at the Boston Marathon.

At one point during the installment, Peter Griffin is asked by Bob Costas about his performance at the event. The cartoon then flashes to Peter running down runners wit his car.

Later on, Peter befriends a terrorist and accidentally blows up a bridge.

Creator Seth MacFarlane has no problem with the episode's removal from Fox.com and Hulu, Tweeting this week of the Boston bombing:

"The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims.”

In the latest sad news related to this terrible act, Krystle Campbell has been identified as one of the three victims. Our thoughts go out to her friends and family.
