Sexist flop: Oscar host Seth MacFarlane’s disdain for women was not a hit
Bingo! And once again, scratch a leftist and find a sexist. “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane proved that adage when he hosted The Academy Awards last night. Twitter users were not amused by his demeaning “jokes” about women.
I might be wrong, but I’m starting to think Seth MacFarlane hates women.

How could we possibly know Seth MacFarlane hates women? If only there were signs . . .
— Joshua Eaton (@joshua_eaton) February 25, 2013
And the signs were prevalent last night. Here are some of his “jokes.”
“Django is a movie where a woman is subjected to violence, or as we call it, a Chris Brown & Rihanna date movie.” – Seth MacFarlane
— Nigel D. (@Nigel_D) February 25, 2013
Yuk, yuk, yuk! Violence against women is just so hilarious, huh, Seth? He then doubled down, right in his opening, with “we saw your boobs.”

Reducing women to the sum of their girly bits is standard operating procedure for the Left.
“We have no idea what they’re saying, but we don’t care because they’re so attractive. Please welcome Salma Hayek.” –Seth MacFarlane

can’t stop thinking about Seth Macfarlane’s “joke” about women giving themselves the “flu” so they’d look thinner! Nothing funny about that!
— Ann Shoket (@annshoket) February 25, 2013
Seth Macfarlane…. That joke about the flu was NOT funny. You made me respect you even less… Didn’t know that was possible. #oscars2013

Remember when Seth Macfarlane called Jennifer Aniston a stripper for no apparent reason?
— Marcus Michalik (@MarcusMichalik) February 25, 2013
Yes, he did.
A joke about Jennifer Aniston being an exotic dancer? The sexist digs just keep on rolling. Does Seth MacFarlane have any other material?

No, he doesn’t.
“‘Zero Dark Thirty’ is about a woman’s innate ability to never let go.” – Seth MacFarlane | Not all women are that weak.

We are just surprised he didn’t go with the old “take my wife … please.” Of course, what woman would marry him? Then, he upped the shameful ante with a foul remark about 9-year-old actress Quvenzhané Wallis. As Twitchy reported, The Onion called the 9-year-old a viciously vile word in an atrocious tweet that was subsequently deleted. To many, MacFarlane’s disgraceful “joke” was just as bad.
Seth MacFarlane: Qu’venzhane Wallis… It’ll be 16 years until she’s too old for Clooney. #Oscars
— MSN Movies (@MSNMovies) February 25, 2013
Yes, the Onion ‘joke’ was terrible, but I personally think Seth MacFarlane’s joke about her growing up to date Clooney was much worse.
— Luis Paez-Pumar (@paezpumarL) February 25, 2013
That Onion tweet and MacFarlane’s Clooney “joke” in front of a 9 y/o girl on national TV are still making my stomach turn.

The reviews are in: Twitter users reacted to his sneering contempt for women.
“Blah blah Hitler joke blah blah Racism joke blah blah I hate women.” — Seth MacFarlane’s opening monologue for the Oscars
— Joe Hughes (@JoeHughes28) February 24, 2013
thanks to Seth MacFarlane, violence against women is still a punchline to a joke
— flo the roman (@floraidhso) February 24, 2013
It’s nice of MacFarlane to reduce representations of women to their secondary sexual organs because they don’t get enough of that. #oscars

Jokes about beating women and racial stereotypes in the first 5 mins of the #Oscars? I couldn’t expect anything more from Seth MacFarlane…
— Bridget Johnston (@b_johnst) February 25, 2013
Yep. It was expected, after he announced the Oscar nominations with a Hitler joke.
“See, Affleck is ridiculous because he struggled professionally but Chastain is ridiculous because I hate women!” -MacFarlane backstage

“Haha, women! Amirite guys?” —MacFarlane
— Eric Reif (@esreif) February 25, 2013
In case you were wondering, yes, Seth MacFarlane does hate women.
— Margaret Lyons (@margeincharge) February 25, 2013
Is it just me or does Seth MacFarlane look like he would be more comfortable hosting the Oscars in 1954?
— Jay Caruso (@jaycaruso) February 25, 2013
Peter Griffin wrote all of Seth MacFarlane’s jokes about women. #oscars
— Josh Gondelman (@joshgondelman) February 25, 2013
Wouldn’t it be funny if Seth Macfarlane just came out and said “women are dumb. Haha. Ok the next presenter…”
— Elahe Izadi (@ElaheIzadi) February 25, 2013
Dunno why they’re showcasing these songs but at least for a few minutes it’s not Seth MacFarlane being confused & angry about women.
— Steph Guthrie (@amirightfolks) February 25, 2013
A final note about Seth MacFarlane! Not sure what he was trying to accomplish but all the belittling jokes about women were pathetic.
— ThomasBrophy (@ThomasABrophy) February 25, 2013
And, in a nutshell:
Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, And Seth MacFarlane Is Dull And Misogynistic
