Family Guy is known for its politically incorrect humour, but now the team behind the show are making some changes. Fans of the animated comedy series are used to its often distasteful humour. One character, Joe, is in a wheelchair, and the subject of many of the show's disabled jokes.
Another, Quagmire, is used as a platform for the many references to rape or sexual harassment. And during the show's season run, Stewie, the Griffin family baby, has been hit with quips about being gay. But it appears that the jokes targeted at the LGBT community are on the way out.
In Sunday's episode, Peter Griffin, who is voiced by the show's creator Seth MacFarlane, was seen telling a cartoon President Trump that the show was trying to "phase out" gay jokes. We're a cartoon. You're the president. The change in direction has been confirmed by the show's executive producers Alec Sulkin and Rich Appel, who told TV Line that they want to better reflect the current climate in the show. Sulkin said: "If you look at a show from or and put it side by side with a show from orthey're going to have a few differences. Appel added: "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. One of the defences of the show's controversial storylines is that they make fun of all minority groups equally and some have argued that there's no reason one particular minority group should be exempt. And some in the LGBT community argued the show does not offend them.
However, some people think Family Guy is in need of change, including Nick Duffy, the current affairs editor of Pink News, who says it is important to reflect a more modern view of homosexuality in the show. They've not apologised although they do seem to have moved past it.
Duffy says the reason comedy shows often miss the mark is because they portray "a straight white man's experience of comedy - just look at Saturday Night Live! Daily Mail Australia writer Jacques Peterson, who writes about pop culture and entertainment, says that Family Guy misses the mark when it comes to comedic value altogether. He disagrees with the idea that adding diverse writers to the mix would improve Family Guy's gay jokes and says a good joke is a good joke regardless of who wrote it. Does that mean gay people can't write jokes about straight people? I'm a writer and I'm going to write about anything and anybody I want, and I hope other writers do the same.
