Seth MacFarlane Says He’s ‘Embarrassed’ To Work For Fox After Tucker Carlson’s Comments
MacFarlane is the producer of Fox network shows including Family Guy, American Dad and The Orville. However, that didn’t stop him from tearing into the comment Carlson made on Thursday night, saying “If you’re looking to understand what’s actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they’re telling you on the big news stations.”
In the tweet below, MacFarlane admitted he’s “embarrassed” to work for a company when anchors make comments such as these. He also sarcastically paraphrased Carlson’s comment, saying people should avoid critical thinking and “blindly obey Fox News.”
In other words, don’t think critically, don’t consult multiple news sources, and in general, don’t use your brain. Just blindly obey Fox News. This is fringe shit, and it’s business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company. https://t.co/kC7MPYxdgZ

MacFarlane has been part of the Fox network since the start of Family Guy, totaling in ten years of work in their several animated comedies.
Just this week, Comcast offered to buy 21st Century Fox for $65 billion. Disney previously offered $52.4 billion for the company. However, any deal would not include Fox News, for it would remain in corporate boss Rupert Murdoch‘s hands, but MacFarlane’s shows would be.
