Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly has slammed actor and the creator of the animated television series Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane  for criticizing the Fox Broadcasting company, owned by Fox Corporation.

Kelly, 50, made the comments in response to a tweet by MacFarlane, 47, last weekend who wrote that he wished his creations were broadcast on a channel that wasn’t Fox.

‘Tucker Carlson’s latest opinion piece once again makes me wish Family Guy was on any other network. Look, Fox, we both know this marriage isn’t working anymore. The sex is only once a year, I don’t get along with your mother, and well… I’ve been having an affair with NBC,’ he tweeted. 

NBCUniversal gave MacFarlane a $200 million deal for him to work on new shows while still making Family Guy for Fox while Carlson has recently come under fire recently for his anti-vaccination claims and segments.

The comment angered Kelly who felt as though MacFarlane had little to complain about given that he is worth $300 million with a good deal of his wealth coming directly from shows he has created for the network owned by Rupert Murdoch.

MacFarlane pitched Family Guy at the age of 24 in 1998 when Fox purchased the series.

Several of MacFarlene’s other creations including American Dad! and The Cleveland Show were also bought by Fox.

‘I have no tolerance for that,’ Kelly explained. ‘The same way I have no tolerance for James Murdoch running around, besmirching Fox News.

‘You can’t make your gazillions off of the entity and then once you have them say they’re disgusting, I am horrified. It’s like James Murdoch is saying nasty things about Fox while he’s rides on a jet paid for by Fox News, in it from his mansion paid for by Fox News, on his way to his yacht paid for by Fox News.

‘So spare me if I don’t have my little violin out for him and others, you know, who profited off of the Fox empire and now just want to say they’re disgusted to have made a mint off of him.’

Kelly’s guest, Dr. Drew Pinsky, a media personality and internist agreed.  

‘We call that hypocrisy. It’s just hypocritical,’ Pinsky said. ‘You don’t get to capitalize on what they’re providing and own it and then complain it’s disgusting, you don’t want anything to do with it. If you don’t want anything to do with it, spin it off, that’s fine, that’s all cool.

‘It’s weird, just the mention of Fox News raises tons of feelings to people,’ Pinsky added.

‘Yes it does,’ responded Kelly. ‘I’m aware. Yes, I’ve heard that.’  

Carlson, meanwhile, has recently come under fire recently for his anti-vaccination claims and segments.
