Green Room

Yes, Seth, Too Soon

posted at 6:17 am on February 25, 2013 by

Seth MacFarlane, the host of this year’s Oscars, decided tonight would be a swell time to drop a Lincoln assassination joke. To the Hollywood crowd’s credit, they were disturbed by the joke, and gasped at it. MacFarlane responded by asking what, too soon? Yes. Call me naive, but I would like to live in an America where it’s never okay to joke about presidential assassinations, be they of Republicans or Democrats. I’ll let others pile on about one of MacFarlane’s creations, Ted, who showed up a bit later thinking anti-Semitism would be funny, too.
