(ANTIMEDIA) — As more accusers come forward alleging sexual misconduct by powerful Hollywood figures, Family Guy fans have noticed a pattern: Seth MacFarlane has used the show and his platform to warn of these people several times, and he’s been doing it for many years.

1) Kevin Spacey in 2005

Twelve years before Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting him when he was 14, an episode of Family Guy included a scene that seemed to suggest Spacey was a predator.

“Help, I’ve escaped from Kevin Spacey’s basement! Help me!” yells Stewie Griffin as he runs through a crowded mall wearing only a diaper.

Following the floodgate of accusations against Spacey, MacFarlane has yet to release a statement addressing the scene.

2) Brett Ratner in 2012

In a 2012 episode of Family Guy titled, “Leggo My Meg-O,” there is a scene that jokes about Brett Ratner, an American film producer best known for directing the Rush Hour film series, bidding on a sex slave. The auctioneer begins by announcing the bids, saying: “I have $75,000. Thank you, Brett Ratner.”

Five years later, the scene sounds less like a joke and more like MacFarlane trying to sound the alarm. Ratner has now been accused of sexually harassing and assaulting at least six women.

3) Harvey Weinstein in 2013

After introducing the nominees for the best-supporting-actress award as host of the 2013 Oscars, Seth MacFarlane said: “Congratulations, you five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein.” The joke drew laughter from the audience.

Four years later, more than 80 women have accused Weinstein of sexual assault or harassment. When the Weinstein scandal first began to dominate the news cycle last month, MacFarlane took to Twitter to confirm that his joke “came from a place of loathing and anger” over an assault on his friend, Jessica Barth.

It almost seems as though the moment a Hollywood figure is accused of sexual misconduct, someone on the internet discovers a Seth MacFarlane reference from the past.

Perhaps a special prosecutor should be assigned to watch all of the old Family Guy episodes.

  1. Damn why did we not see it sooner good on him for trying to alert us to these freaks. He should get a medal I wonder how many more we will find.

  2. I find it hard to believe that this guy is warning us of that. Almost every single episode of family guy references pedophilia or sexual abuse. I quit watching that show years ago for this reason…
