It’s kind of hard to lighten the mood with appropriate humor at a benefit to combat homelessness. That’s probably why, Seth MacFarlane decided to choose a slightly easier target for jokes at a recent event in Los Angeles. Instead of joking about people struggling to survive on the street, he went after a guy with an elevator for his cars; Mitt Romney.
The New York Daily News’ Gatecrasher column is reporting that MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy and the voice of that computer animated bear that’s been all over your TV sets recently, took swipes at the Republican candidate while at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball.
From The New York Daily News:
“SETH MACFARLANE may work for the same corporation that brings us Fox News, but that doesn’t mean he supports Mitt Romney. At the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in Los Angeles on Saturday night, MacFarlane told Hollywood heavy-hitters at a private estate in swanky Brentwood that homelessness — which Chrysalis fights to alleviate — could happen to them, too. ‘Maybe your workplace gets bought out by Bain Capital,’ said the ‘Family Guy’ creator, referring to the private-equity firm started by the GOP presidential candidate. ‘It could happen to any of us or all of us, depending how November shakes out.’”
MacFarlane’s humor is frequently left-leaning as evidenced by the recent Family Guy episode taking on the Tea Party. Of course, the show hasn’t been above a big Rush Limbaugh cameo. Still, it’s safe to assume MacFarlane will not be voting “Romney” in November.
