Oscars 2013: Seth MacFarlane Jokes About Rihanna And Chris Brown

February 25, 2013 10:58 AM by Stephanie Gustafson

Rihanna has been the subject of much criticism ever since she decided to return to Chris Brown.  And at yesterday’s Oscar Awards, the X Factor guest star was once again ridiculed for choosing to return to the man who so infamously abused her in 2009. What did Seth MacFarlane have to say about Rihanna and Chris Brown’s relationship?

Hey Rihanna — Seth MacFarlane does not approve of your decision to get back together with Chris Brown! Not that this little tidbit will influence the singer’s thinking in any way, as Seth joins a long list of disapproving celebs. The famous screenwriter hosted last night’s Oscar Awards, and while he was quick to joke about a wide array of celebrities, his most controversial zinger involved today’s most controversial celebrity couple.

The joke about Rihanna and Chris Brown arrived as Seth MacFarlane announced the Django Unchained, the film that won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. “This is the story of a man fighting to get back his woman, who’s been subjected to unthinkable violence. Or as Chris Brown and Rihanna call it, a date movie.”

This joke was only one of Seth MacFarlane’s many controversial jabs — the host also made fun of George Clooney’s propensity for younger women, as well as Mel Gibson’s use of offensive language. But the joke about Rihanna drew gasps from the audience, quickly followed by some very weak and nervous sounding laughter. Seth quickly added, “that’s as bad as it gets, if it makes you feel better.”
