Family Guy /Boston Massacre Video a Hoax

(PCM) The video making the rounds (below, but will probably disappear soon) is an amateur edit Family Guy episode “Turban Cowboy,” shown on FOX on March 17, ended with a scene depicting Peter Griffin accidentally blowing up a bridge by dialing a terrorist’s cell phone. But in the manipulated video making the rounds online, the cell phone scene is placed immediately after an unrelated moment in the episode when broadcaster Bob Costas, playing himself, asks Peter how he won the Boston Marathon.

Aside from the confusion prompted in people unaware that the clip is a hoax, it’s drawn criticism from those involved with the show Seth McFarlane announced on his twitter: “The edited Family Guy clip currently circulating is abhorrent. The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims.”
