The popular and award-winning American adult animated (cartoon) sitcom in its newest series portrayed Abuja as an under-developed city populated by Animals and Native Africans.
In the series, Meg, a character in the series is seen ordering for a taxi and a Rhinoceros shows up as the kind of Uber used in Nigeria.
Making a joke about Africa and Africans is always funny right?
Family Guy is known for its “offensive” jokes which are neatly calculated to make sure they don’t actually risk offending their fanbase; instead they make jokes that would be offensive to the kinds of people who don’t watch the show.
I mean look at how they portrayed Abuja, one of the most beautiful cities in Nigeria.
Family Guy is described as an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, an odd family consisting of parents Peter and Lois; their children Meg, Chris, and Stewie; and their pet dog Brian.
Controversies have arisen due to the show’s use of jokes and satire.
And critics have argued that various negative things have wormed their way into the series, driven down its quality, and reduced it to the point where it should be axed before it can slip any further.
