Family Guy voice actor refuses to apologise for show's humour

Family Guy voice actor refuses to apologise for show's humour

Family Guy voice actor takes a stand and is refusing to apologise for the show's humour any more.

Family Guy voice actor is taking a stand and is done apologising for the humour of the show and refuses to do it anymore.

There is no question that the popular animated sitcom continues to be one of the most controversial shows on TV. It pushes the boundaries of humour and some believe that it can push those boundaries too far from time to time. However, on the flip side, that is exactly why Family Guy has proven to be so popular for nearly a quarter of a century.

As reported by UNILAD, one of the stars of the show, Patrick Warburton who plays paraplegic cop Joe Swanson, used to feel obliged to apologise for Family Guy’s humour, but not any more.

“I used to apologise for being on Family Guy, and I apologise no more because this world is a horrible native satire,” Warburton told Fox News.

“Everybody takes themselves too seriously, and… I think in many ways it has become an overwhelming mess, he continued. “But we need humour in our lives, and we need love and humour, acceptance. It’s all rather simple.”

At the end of the day, much like everything in life, everyone has their own personal tastes. Whether it be movies, video games, music and so forth. Humour is no exception. What’s more, anyone that gets offended by shows such as Family Guy or South Park are unlikely to watch the show anyway.

However, one of those offended by such shows is the mother of Patrick Warburton, Barbara. Who just so happens to be a devoted Christian and a member of a Parents Television Council.

According to the Daily Mail, in 2011 Barbara Warburton said that Family Guy sends: “the wrong messages” and was concerned that it corrupts the minds of children. “Shows like these are leading toward the destruction of morality…nothing seems sacred any more,” she said.

Barbara also implied that she respects those that turned down roles based on their morals and convictions, “but Patrick isn't one of those people” said his mom. Ouch!

What’s more, the creator of Family Guy, Seth McFarlane actually has a Federal Communications Commission complaint filed against him by Patrick’s mother. Yeah, I bet that’s awkward.

All episodes of Family Guy are available to stream on Disney Plus.
