‘Family Guy’ Takes Swipe At Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey & More, Actors Hold Sexual Abuser Meeting

Sunday night’s “Family Guy” saw the show lampoon Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey, and numerous others amid the ongoing sexual harassment scandal.

Creator Seth MacFarlane also referenced Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, Steven Segal, Matt Lauer, Brett Ratner, and James Toback, who have all been accused of acting inappropriately, in the season 16 episode.

The scene began by showing Peter Griffin watching the television at The Drunken Clam bar with his friends Quagmire, Cleveland and Joe, before an announcement on the TV said: “We now return to ‘Marvel’s The Offenders’.”

The camera then cut to a boardroom meeting, led by Cosby, who was found guilty of all counts of sexual assault after a retrial at the end of last month.

The disgraced comedian was wearing a Nick Fury-inspired eyepatch.

Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual abuse by dozens of women, then barged into the meeting wearing a bathrobe, telling the group: “Don’t forget me, Harvey Shower.”

Allen interrupted, “Is Matt Damon coming?” to which Cosby replied: “No, but he knows about all of us. He’s very aware of what’s going on here, you see.”

This certainly isn’t the first time “Family Guy” has addressed sexual abuse, with baby Stewie yelling: “Help! I’ve escaped from Kevin Spacey’s basement!” while running through a shopping mall naked in season 4.
