It was only a matter of time before "Family Guy" played on Kevin Spacey's allegations.
It's no surprise that the creators of Family Guy have taken the sexual assault allegations against Kevin Spacey and added it to one of their latest episodes. Seth MacFarlane and his team are infamous for intertwining the real-life media happenings into the city of Quahog.
In the December 3rd episode titled “Crimes and Meg’s Demeanor,” Peter, Lois, and Meg are seen watching the end of The Usual Suspects - the 1995 film starring Kevin. When the movie finishes, Peters response to Kevin Spacey’s character being Keyser Söze is, "he was gay the whole time!”
The small input of Peters reaction plays on Kevin taking the accusations against him and spinning it on him coming out "as a gay man."
If you can remember, this isn't the first time the series has poked fun at Kevin. Twelve years ago, an episode shows Stewie running through a mall naked screaming, "help, I've escaped from Kevin Spacey's basement!"
When Kevin released his statement, GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis responded appropriately saying:
"Coming-out stories should not be used to deflect from allegations of sexual assault. This is not a coming-out story about Kevin Spacey, but a story of survivorship by Anthony Rapp and all those who bravely speak out against unwanted sexual advances. The media and public should not gloss over that.”
