‘Family Guy’ Knew Bruce Jenner Was a Woman Way Back in 2009
When Bruce Jenner revealed Caitlyn Jenner to the world on the cover of Vanity Fair, it created a stir. Stewie from Family Guy, however, probably didn’t even blink.
This clip is going ’round the internet this week in the wake of the public seeing Jenner’s picture as a woman, which has caused quite a stir.
In this 2009 episode of Family Guy, Stewie tells Brian that Bruce is actually a woman — “an elegant, beautiful Dutch woman.” It’s some spot-on foreshadowing from a show that has made a name for its biting social commentary on pop culture.
The only question is did the people who worked on Family Guy know something no one else did or was it merely being mean, which is certainly not out of the realm of possibility.
