Patrick Warburton often turns off ‘Family Guy’

The Fox’s series Family Guy takes a twist as Patrick Warburton who is the voice behind police officer Joe Swanson states even when the comedy series went too far, Warburton still voiced Swanson in Family Guy but this too at a stake.

The Fox series is one to push the envelope and has gotten embroiled in its fair share of controversies. Several organizations have called out “Family Guy” for its insensitivities throughout the years

While speaking with HuffPost in 2015, Warburton revealed that he’s had issues with the show’s content and has even refused to do a scene. “It was something that was so offensive that I said, ‘If that’s in the show, I can’t do this episode. Put it in another [expletive] episode that I’m not in,'” Warburton said. “We all wonder if we have a line that can be crossed, and I just discovered there is actually a line with me.”

Despite the occasional insensitivity found in the writing. Warburton continues to watch the series until it hits too close on the religious front. “It’s because I’m a Christian, and it’s also because I just see it as diminished returns. Like, it’s something that you’re just going to get a jillion people to just turn the TV off,” the actor discussed. Warburton’s mother is actually a member of The Parents Television Council. One of the most prominent groups outspoken against the show’s content.

For Warburton, the best course of action is to just stop watching the show when it goes too far. “We turn it off in our house every now and then, too. When it gets just too sacrilegious,” the “Family Guy” actor added.

“Family Guy” carries on regardless of its controversy. It shouldn’t be too tough to switch to something more enjoyable as the show isn’t for everyone. In fact, voice actor Patrick Warburton does that when the show deviates too far from his preferences.
