Seth MacFarlane’s ‘Family Guy’ alluded to the Kevin Spacey allegations in 2005


Following “Rent” star Anthony Rapp’s allegations that actor Kevin Spacey made sexual advances toward him when he was just 14 years old, a clip from a 12-year-old episode of Seth MacFarlane’s animated sitcom “Family Guy” is making the rounds on social media.

Rapp’s allegations caused Spacey to apologize for the incident, despite claiming to not remember it. He also used the same statement to officially come out as gay.

Now,a brief gag from a Season 4 episode that initially aired back in 2005 and involves a naked Stewie Griffin running around and yelling that he’s just escaped from Kevin Spacey’s basement, is making the rounds on social media.

It wasn’t the first time MacFarlane hinted at a yet-to-be-revealed secret. In the wake of the allegations of harassment and sexual assault against movie producer Harvey Weinstein, a clip from the 2013 Oscar nominations announcement ceremony -- which MacFarlane hosted -- went viral.

The audience awkwardly chuckled when MacFarlane jokingly congratulated the nominees because they “no longer have to pretend to be attracted” to Weinstein.

After his Weinstein gag resurfaced, MacFarlane explained on Twitter that the dig came “from a place of loathing and anger.”
