Fox has pulled a March episode of Family Guy after a mash-up of clips made the series look like it was portraying a bombing at the Boston Marathon.
In the clip, which has nearly 140,000 views on YouTube, a scene from the March 17 episode, "Turban Cowboy," depicts Peter Griffin accidentally blowing up a bridge while using a terrorist's cell phone. However, the clip places that scene directly after an unrelated one, in which Bob Costas asks Peter Griffin how he won the Boston Marathon.
Hours after the Boston Marathon bombings, Boston native Mark Wahlberg had to hit the red carpet for the New York premiere of his upcoming film, Pain and Gain, which says really put things in perspective for him.
