Sarah Palin Blasts Family Guy Over Down Syndrome Joke
The Fox News contributor is very angry at the creators of the popular series.
Sarah Palin was more than a little disgruntled Sunday evening after watching an episode of Family Guy that seemed to poke fun at the former vice presidential candidate’s Down syndrome son Trig.
A mentally handicapped character had said “My dad’s an accountant, and my mom’s the former governor of Alaska” during the controversial installment of the hit series.
On Tuesday Palin posted a note on her Facebook saying that the episode felt “like another kick in the gut”, and later released her daughter Britol’s response to the debate.
“Are there any limits to what some people will do or say in regards to my little brother or others in the special needs community? If the writers of a particularly pathetic cartoon show thought they were being clever in mocking my brother and my family yesterday [Sunday], they failed,” Bristol declared. “All they proved is that they’re heartless jerks.”
