Conservatives weren’t too happy with “Family Guy’s” latest swipe at White House adviser Kellyanne Conway.
The television show sent out a mailer to Emmy voters featuring main character Peter Griffin dressed in Conway’s inaugural outfit on the cover — which the general public was not feeling at all. The top of the image said “Alternative Fact: We are the smartest comedy on television,” another hat tip to Conway.
Though the show and its creator Seth MacFarlane are well-known for their offensive content, conservatives on Twitter made their distaste known:
“Family Guy” is the first animated series to be nominated in the Outstanding Comedy Series since “The Flinstones” in 1961. But while the show is a four-time nominee in the awards show, it has yet to take home a prize. Nominations are set to be announced in July.
