Seth MacFarlane brutally rips Phil Robertson and ‘Duck Dynasty’ during acceptance speech

MacFarlane was given the Louis XIII Genius Award during a live telecast of the fifth annual award show, aired on A&E Network, which also airs Robertson’s show “Duck Dynasty.”


Seth MacFarlane, creator of the Emmy Award winning series “Family Guy,” is a pretty outspoken critic of religious fundamentalism along with being a vocal proponent of LGBT rights. During his acceptance speech at Sunday night’s Critics’ Choice TV Awards, he took an opportunity to rip into the celebrity daddy of hellfire preachers and homophobes, Phil Robertson.

MacFarlane made the comments after he was given the Louis XIII Genius Award at the fifth annual award show, aired on A&E Network, which also airs Robertson’s show “Duck Dynasty.”

“Let’s not forget I’m being declared a genius on a network that airs ‘Duck Dynasty,’ a show whose cast members believe hurricanes are created by gay marriage,” MacFarlane said. “I wish I was joking.”

    I wish the writer of the article understood that if you use quotation marks, you are to include the speaker’s words EXACTLY as spoken, not with words left out.

    You misquoted him. He said, “I wish I were joking.” He used proper grammar. Its rude to make him look like an idiot.

    Not really much of a ripping if you ask me. He’s voicing his views just like the Robertsons voice theirs. It’s called freedom of speech. America baby!!!

    “Voicing” their opinions is no problem. HAVING those opinions is what is downright ignorant!

    Free speech, and America, only works when citizens are educated. Otherwise you have braying asses – like Robertson.

    Your a nasty mouth anyhow. Just the opposite of what this country needs. You need to hit your knees and beg for forgiveness and get you some of what Phil Robertson has. Jesus Christ!!!

    Typical response from an elitist. Freedom of speech is only acceptable from certain points of view. If you disagree, your a homophobe,bigot or any other pejorative adjective the can vomit out. If they only looked deeply, they would discover they are truly the hateful, intolerant members of society. They like to who hide behind the 1st amendment, which they probably would like to limit to those who agree with them. Nice.

    The fact that Robertson did remind one of a “Braying Ass” reflects only on Robertson, not on the one who points it out. Truth is truth even when you don’t like it.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
