Those who know Seth MacFarlane are aware that the comedian has a tendency to deliberately go overboard with his jokes. However, a large number of critics are accusing the actor of being anti-Semitic and sexist after his crude jokes at the 85th Oscars Ceremony.

The purpose of Seth MacFarlane’s role as host of the Oscars was for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to introduce a twist to its old-school approach. As a Los Angeles Times' television critic argues: "Well, that didn't work", since MacFarlane’s humour was widely misinterpreted by the mass as being purposely anti-Semitic and sexist.

"Despite the valiant efforts of Adele, Barbra Streisand and a surprisingly witty Daniel Day-Lewis... (the show) was long, self-indulgent and dull even by the show's time-honoured dull-defining standards," the LA Times television critic added. An article in The New Yorker also said: "Watching the Oscars last night meant sitting through a series of crudely sexist antics led by a scrubby, self-satisfied Seth MacFarlane."

 

Seth MacFarlane at the Oscars Ceremony

This wave of disproving criticism is being ignored by Seth MacFarlane who has only said via his Twitter page that he will never host the Oscars again, although he had much fun doing it. The anti-Semitic label is one which the comedian has grown accustomed to. His Family Guy and American Dad shows are always laced with borderline comments about Jewish and Muslim people.

One of the highlights of the 85th Oscars Ceremony for MacFarlane fans was the appearance of the latter’s foul-mouthed teddy bear, Ted. Although his comment about the Jewish people controlling Hollywood was the one which brought Seth MacFarlane all the grief, one has to admit that it was fun to see the talking bear again. Ted for next year’s host, anyone?
