Seth Macfarlane - Oscars Host Seth MacFarlane Hounded By Protest Group Over American Dad Joke

Seth Macfarlane's name is being bandied about the media right now, as he has been announced as next year's Oscars host. However, the American Dad and Family Guy creator has had a pressure group snapping at his heels for years and now, the Parents Television Council is filing a complaint about the forthcoming episode of American Dad. The episode, scheduled to air on the Fox network on Sunday, contains alleged references to oral sex and ejaculation and the PTC are none too happy about it.

"Is the man that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has selected to host next year's Oscars telecast, following in the footsteps of such Hollywood legends as Bob Hope and Johnny Carson?" asked the PTC president Tim Winter. "In the past, American Dad and MacFarlane's other programs have included scenes mocking people with Down syndrome, implying father-daughter incest, a man masturbating a horse, a baby eating horse sperm, and a character eating vomit and excrement out of a baby's diaper." The problematic scene this time round is an SUV that runs on carbon, oxygen and potassium, branded the Hummie COK Guzzler.

Macfarlane has previously said that receiving a letter from the Christian PTC is like "receiving hate mail from Hitler" so we doubt he's too concerned about their renewed efforts to snub him. "They're literally terrible human beings," MacFarlane said back in 2008. "I've read their newsletter, I've visited their website, and they're just rotten to the core. For an organization that prides itself on Christian values - I mean, I'm an atheist, so what do I know? - they spend their entire day hating people."
