A scene depicting runners at the Boston Marathon being killed and another depicting two bombs being detonated are SEPARATE SCENES but they are in the SAME EPISODE.

This episode of Family Guy was broadcast 3 weeks ago.

The media is labeling this whole issue a "hoax" and Seth McFarlane is calling anyone who talks about it "abhorrent," when he's the guy who made a cartoon making light of killing Boston Marathon runners and detonating bombs. 

Hollywood Reporter article admits they are from the same episode. "Turban Cowboy," which premiered in the U.S. on March 17, culminates with a scene depicting Peter Griffin accidentally blowing up a bridge by dialing a terrorist's cell phone. But in the video making the rounds online, the cell phone scene is placed immediately after an unrelated moment in the episode when Bob Costas, voicing himself, asks Peter how he won the Boston Marathon." http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live...

One of the more tasteless hoaxes making the rounds in the wake of the bombing at the Boston Marathon revolves around a recent episode of Fox's Family Guy.
"Turban Cowboy," which premiered in the U.S. on March 17, culminates with a scene depicting Peter Griffin accidentally blowing up a bridge by dialing a terrorist's cell phone. But in the video making the rounds online, the cell phone scene is placed immediately after an unrelated moment in the episode when Bob Costas, voicing himself, asks Peter how he won the Boston Marathon.
Aside from the confusion prompted in people unaware that the clip is a hoax, it's drawn criticism from those involved with the show.
"The edited Family Guy clip currently circulating is abhorrent," creator Seth MacFarlane wrote on Twitter. "The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims."
MacFarlane was retweeted by other members of the Family Guy team, including Seth Green.
On Tuesday, Fox removed the episode from Fox.com and Hulu.com, a rep for the network confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.
