'Family Guy' Lap Dance Scene Under Attack


'Family Guy' Lap Dance Scene Under Attack


Parents Television Council files a complaint after FOX aired a scene where Peter's father-in-law was treated with a stripper's dance until he has a heart attack.

"Family Guy" once again landed itself on hot water when it aired an episode where Carter Pewterschmidt was given a lap dance by a stripper. The Parents Television Council (PTC) is not happy with the situation, arguing that the FOX animation is one of the most-watched programs with children 6 to 11.

PTC has filed a complaint to Federal Communications Commission about the Sunday, December 13 episode. "In the episode, loutish Peter takes his father-in-law and friends to a strip club named the Fuzzy Clam. Peter tells a stripper to perform a lap dance on his father-in-law. She bends over and waggles her rear before his face," PTC starts with the description of the particular scene.

" 'Do I stick the money right inside of her?' he asks. When Peter replies, 'No, you do not,' his father-in-law asks, 'Why? Have you done that before?' Peter giggles nervously. As the woman briefly rubs her rear against the father-in-law's crotch, he asks, 'When do I hit her?' Peter pours beer down his in-law's throat and orders the stripper to 'give this old bastard the ride of his life'."

"The stripper writhes up and down against the father-in-law's body, shakes her breasts in his face, then straddles his lap and thrusts her groin against his. Lois' father grunts in pleasure, then spasms and collapses to the ground as he has a heart attack."

In their argument, PTC says, "Apparently Fox must believe that because the program is animated it can air anything it wants on 'Family Guy' no matter how inappropriate or indecent. Fox hides behind satire and animation as an 'excuse' to air the foulest material imaginable, but Fox needs to learn that broadcast decency laws apply to all broadcast programming aired during the time when children are most likely to be watching."

FOX chose to give no comment to this. Meanwhile, the episode which becomes the subject of complaint can be found at Hulu.com.

    Why would parents of 6-11 year old kids let them watch a show that is rated TV-14 & explicitly states at the beginning of EVERY EPISODE that "viewer discretion is advised"!!! That's just bad parenting on their part & need to stop blaming others for their stupidity.
