‘Family Guy’ Predicted Caitlyn Jenner’s Transitioning Into A Woman In 2009
A clip from an episode of “Family Guy” back in 2009 predicting the news of Caitlyn Jenner has gone viral.
The 17-second video features the characters Stewie and Brian, in which they discuss Bruce Jenner, who is now on the cover of Vanity Fair, as Caitlyn Jenner.
In the video Stewie says that he couldn’t believe that Bruce Jenner gave birth to Brody Jenner.
“Bruce Jenner is a man,” Brian replies.
Stewie then tells Brian that he is wrong. “That’s what the press would have you believe, but he’s not. Bruce Jenner is a woman—an elegant, beautiful Dutch woman.”
Other than the fact that Jenner isn’t Dutch, Stewie knew all along!
Jenner’s transition will be documented on her new E! docu-series, I Am Cait.
This is not the first time “Family Guy” predicted an event. Back in 2013, a rumor that the sitcom writers predicted the Boston Marathon bombings started surfacing.
In the video, Peter Griffin wins the Boston Marathon by setting off explosions with a cellphone. However, the video that went viral was an edited clip — not the actual episode. An unknown person edited two different clips from Family Guy episodes to make it seem like the writers predicted the horrible incident.
The creator of the show, Seth MacFarlane, addressed the rumor on 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.
