  • Seth MacFarlane is on a roll

Seth MacFarlane continues to be hammered by women and the press for his barrage of base humor as the Oscars host Sunday night. The Huffington Post reports that now two California legislators have entered the fray, penning a letter to the Academy president outlining their disappointment.

Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, and Assemblywoman Bonnie Lowenthal, D-Long Beach, wrote: “There was a disturbing theme about violence against women being acceptable and funny. … From topical jabs about domestic violence to singing about `boobs' during a film's rape scene, Seth MacFarlane crossed the line from humor to misogyny."

Well yeah, when you put it that way…
