Family Guy Episode Pulled After Boston Bombing

A recent Family Guy episode has been removed from Fox's website and Hulu after someone edited the show to appear like it predicted Monday's Boston Marathon bombing. "Turban Cowboy," which originally aired March 17, featured Peter Griffin driving over marathon runners to reach the finish line; it was spliced with a separate clip from the episode in which Peter inadvertently detonates a bomb. "The edited Family Guy clip currently circulating is abhorrent," Seth MacFarlane tweeted. "The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims." Fox plans not to re-air the episode.
