Did "Family Guy" really predict the horrific Boston Marathon bombings in an episode that aired last month? No, but that's the latest hoax making the rounds on the Internet a day after the tragedy.
The carefully edited clip that supposedly supports this theory got so much exposure that "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane himself took to Twitter to denounce it.
"The edited Family Guy clip currently circulating is abhorrent," he wrote. "The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims."
The edited clips came from an episode that aired last month titled "Turban Cowboy." In the edited version, the show's main character, Peter Griffin, appears to use a cellphone to trigger a pair of explosions in order to win a race.
