    If you think that's too far, you really don't watch much family guy. And no topic is barred from humour. Get over it.

    It’s all humour, they make fun of everything. It’s funny. You shouldn’t take it too seriously.

    Relax, mate.

    They make fun of different people and races. Have you watched the one about Mexicans, Jews or the one with the big black guy.

    The main aim of the show is for adult humour and the reason why it is mostly shown at night when the kids are asleep.

    If you cannot handle it, then stop watching it rather than whine about it. We need to get away from this snowflake mentality, else we will never enjoy life because there will be someone that will be offended by something.

    Sorry, what's happened? I swear they've done Asian stereotypes before, as well as jokes about jews. Is there any particular reason to be suddenly shocked or nah?

    ???????

    So the show is not also stereotyping and parodying American men and fathers as white, middle-aged, morbidly-obese, uneducated losers either?

    Get a grip.

    Considering that the Vietnamese character is belittling Americans and America, how is it racist? Simply mimicking an accent isn't racist in itself (and it could have been an Asian actor. Or would a Thai actor mimicking a Vietnamese accent also be racist?)

    Or were you complaining that it was being racist towards Americans?

    This is nothing. South Park is the real OG for stuff like this .

    Not to mention the videos you embedded showed in the opening credits a Thai name and a Chinese "Shin" surname. And that's just what I caught, could be more Asians who literally worked on this very episode... So...

    I think you may be missing the point of the humour. It is Peter who is being ridiculed, his low intelligence and ineptitude. It is taking the piss out of those Americans (and any other nationality) who attempt to belittle foreigners with on over-inflated sense of self importance, but end up being owned themselves.

    Family Guy (and South Park) ar mocking American stereotypes and accepted norms.
