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.
