Creators of the popular series “Family Guy” decided, that making jokes of sexual minorities aren’t funny and they will soon totally disappear from their programme.
“The climate is different, the culture is different and our views are different.”
In the newest episode (11th, season 17th) titled “Trump Guy” we learned that “Peter’s program will slowly stop using gay jokes.” The episode tells us about Peter Griffin which receives a speciall offer, of taking a position of the spokesman of the President of the United States. Then he decides to stop using gay jokes, because he won’t be compared to Trump Guy.
You can watch some of the best moments here:
The series deffinitely stops making jokes of sexual minorities.
The producers – Alec Sulkin and Rich Appel said in the special interview with TVLine, that it is time to stop laughing at somebody’s sexual prefference.
“Some of the things we felt comfortable saying and joking about back [when the show started], we now understand is not acceptable,”
“If a show has literally been on the air for 20 years, the culture changes. And it?s not us reacting and thinking, ‘They won?t let us [say certain things].’ No, we?ve changed too. The climate is different, the culture is different and our views are different. They?ve been shaped by the reality around us, so I think the show has to shift and evolve in a lot of different ways.”
