: Why do people keep saying that Seth McFarlane deserves all that flack? He didn't write the offensive episodes, he didn't edit them, the only thing he does is the final say, the occasional joke, and the voice acting. Blaming him for every single thing that goes wrong with the show is just stupid.
Triassicranger: Because he's the show's creator and when something goes wrong people will automatically point the finger at him first. See the article Scapegoat Creator
for more examples on this.
