No, “Family Guy” Did Not Predict The Boston Marathon Bombing
1. This is the clip that everyone has been pointing to as proof that Family Guy predicted Monday’s bombing.
2. The above clip was taken from two different moments in the episode “Turban Cowboy,” which aired last month.
3. If you haven’t seen the episode it revolves around Peter becoming a Muslim. And because it’s Family Guy there’s, of course, a joke about him using his cell phone to blow up something.
4. The episode features a completely unrelated gag where Peter drives his car through the Boston Marathon, running everyone over.
5. The “Boston Marathon Bombing Conspiracy” edit was posted to Reddit’s r/Conspiracy. Users called it idiotic.
