‘American Dad’ Episode With Horse Ejaculation Draws FCC Fine For Indecency

June 4, 2010

(ChattahBox) – The FCC has proposed a $25,000 fine be placed on FOX over the controversial airing of a January 3, 2010 ‘American Dad’ episode that featured a horse ejaculating.

The claim makes it sound far worst than the actual episode was.

In the clip, one of the characters tells another that the race horse they are stabling has to have a ‘full release’ as part of their upkeep. It then implies that the other character goes through with the process of masturbating the horse, before we learn it had been a prank.

But family-oriented groups have expressed outrage, and 100,000 complaints were filed over the clip.

“Under what definition of ‘contemporary community standards’ is the Fox broadcast standards department operating?” Parents Television Council president, Tim Winter, asked in a statement.

“The fact that this material even made it to air demonstrates the network’s contempt for families. It also demonstrates their complete and utter disregard for the terms of their broadcast licenses that allow them to deliver their programming and their advertisements into every home in America for free.”

But ‘American Dad’ isn’t a family show. It is an adult cartoon, and a common slinger of controversy from ‘Family Guy’ creator Seth Macfarlane (shown above).

Both shows continuously push the envelope of taste, and I find the inference of a horse ejaculating far less extreme than, for example, the ‘babies in the dumpster’ song from Family Guy that has become a legendary shocker for TV audiences.
