The trailer for the long-awaited Simpsons/Family Guy crossover episode was released at Comic-Con this year, much to the delight of fans of the animated comedy series. But the highly anticipated episode, which will air on Sunday, has come under fire for an off-color rape joke revealed in the teaser. It happens at about one minute into the video clip.
Though many are appalled that the writers for the shows would make a joke about something so serious, it’s par for the course when it comes to the two shows, which both have been known to take their politically incorrect humor too far. That is precisely the reason many viewers enjoy the shows so much.
