Race and Hollywood: Fox Declines to Re-Shoot Racially Insensitive Scene in Seth MacFarlane Comedy


Fox declined a suggestion by the Media Action Network for Asian Americans’ that they re-shoot the Seth MacFarlane Dads pilot in order to remove the scene it finds most offensive.  In the scene, a character dresses up in sexy Asian schoolgirl costume and giggles demurely to please Chinese businessmen.

MacFarlane, creator of the controversial animated comedy on Fox, Family Guy, was criticized earlier this year for his envelope-pushing Oscar host performance which many found offensive for its references to homosexuality and drugs, as well as its racial/domestic violence jokes.
