Family Guy Emmy Campaign: Too Far or Too Funny?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The producers of Family Guy would like to be nominated for an Emmy Award. But some don't believe their latest mailing will accomplish this goal.

The flyer speaks for itself:

Family Guy Mailer

Naturally, anyone who has heard any of a number of Family Guy quotes is aware this is par for the sitcom's controversial, non-PC course. But that doesn't mean the campaign is going over well.

"While I think Family Guy is a genuinely funny show, we all - including this 'Brentwood Jew' -need to think twice about this kind of humor," a TV executive told E! News. "Stereotyping any particular ethnic group is just not cool and can lead others (with the wrong intentions) to feel a certain license to take shots. Surely Seth [MacFarlane] has better stuff than this."

What do you think of the campaign? Did the show go too far?
