Family Guy takes another swipe at Kevin Spacey

Family Guy has taken another dig at Kevin Spacey after the actor was accused of committing multiple acts of sexual misconduct against young men over the years.

The hit Fox show has wasted no time lashing out at the now disgraced Oscar winner, who has suffered a monumental fall-from-grace since actor Anthony Rapp first told Buzzfeed News about an incident in 1989, when he was just 14.

In the controversial scene from the latest episode, Meg, who is voiced by Mila Kunis says, "What can I say? I'm full of surprises like the end of The Usual Suspects."

The movie referenced sees Spacey's character Verbal, one of five criminals involved in a revenge plot against the police, unveiled as a criminal mastermind Keyser Söze at the very end of the film. It's long been regarded as one of the most notable endings in movie history.

When the notorious ending reveal is made on the show, Peter, voiced by Seth MacFarlane, says, "Wait, he was gay the whole time?"

The swipe was a direct reference to the fact that Spacey is thought to have tried to overshadow his alleged offences by releasing a statement announcing his sexuality.

It's not the first time Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has referenced the suspected behaviour of one of Hollywood's biggest actors.

After the allegations emerged, an old clip from a 2005 episode of the series resurfaced that showed infant character, Stewie Griffin, running through a shopping centre, screaming.

"Help! I’ve escaped from Kevin Spacey’s basement!" he said. "Help me!”

Spacey, who has been admitted for treatment at a clinic that deals with sex addiction, has since been axed from his House of Cards role.
