Stewie Griffin has never been a family-friendly, politically correct character. He’s obsessed with killing his mother and destroying the world in general. Since he’s a baby, the irony of his plotting is meant to be hilarious but it often comes off as hurtful. Some viewers may insist that people should just be able to “take a joke,” but others insist that some topics shouldn’t be made fun of.
Ask any fan of Family Guy about who is the hottest character on the show is and they will undoubtedly tell you it’s Lois, but ask the same group who the lamest character is and you will likely hear “Meg” as a common response. What gives?
