Seth MacFarlane Reveals ‘Family Guy’s’ Fox News-Inspired COVID PSA
Seth MacFarlane has never felt comfortable sharing a network with Fox News. Now the Family Guy creator has channeled some of that anger into a new PSA that he premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night, acknowledging that he felt the need to counter Tucker Carlson’s disinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine.
“You’ve been very critical of your own employer because the Fox network also is the parent company of Fox News,” Jimmy Kimmel noted during their interview. “And I guess you’re not a Tucker guy?”
“No, you know, that’s why we did this Family Guy PSA about vaccination,” MacFarlane replied. “Because I looked around and I saw everyone else at Fox Corp doing their part to get good science out there and be responsible with their platforms. And looking down the barrel of that kind of peer pressure, I said, gosh, we’ve got to do something too.”
