"SHE'S A VEGETABLE - I HATE VEGETABLES!"

L_H-FamilyGuyEp-1170X700-tv.jpg

We, the undersigned, are deeply concerned about the disrespectful and callous comments directed at Terri Schiavo, including the insensitive portrayal of her in the Family Guy Episode 14 from Season 8 that refers to her as a "vegetable" while a doctor states "I hate vegetables" causing the audience to laugh. Another doctor refers to Terri has having "mashed potato brains" and being "the most expensive plant you'll ever see."

It is saddening and abhorrent that Disney+, Hulu and Fox still continue to belittle Terri Schiavo, to disparage disabled individuals especially those who have experienced brain injury, and to promote insensitivity toward the pain of others by airing this offensive show.

We ask that Episode 14 of Season 8 of Family Guy be removed immediately from your streaming service. It is never right for public entertainment to promote profound disrespect of the disabled and mockery of the pain of a family for their loved one.

Initial goal of 5,000 signatures has been reached. So many good Americans are signing this petition that we have increased our goal to 10,000. Thank you so much for your support!
