The Ejaculation Scene on 'American Dad!' FOX Is Fined For
Parents Television Council (PTC) is none too pleased with a scene in the January 3 episode of "American Dad!" which many refer to as "Horse Ejaculation". FOX is due to pay The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) a $25,000 fine for negligence in properly responding to questions about airing the episode.
The episode, that drew 100,000 consumer complaints, had some between-the-lines racy jokes such as "Makeout Point", "tongue your gas hole", "POPPER Ln" and "CHERRY St." Then there's the horse chores where a character appears to give a horse an ejaculation because of his choice of language.
Before cleaning the animal, the character said to the horse, "Do me a favor and let me know when you're about to, you know." The scene then cut to the man being sprayed in the face but when the shot is pulled back, it turns out that a water hose did it.
Tim Winter president of PTC issued a statement, saying "A broadcast television network aired an animated program on a Sunday evening when children were in the audience, and the program featured a man masturbating a horse. Up until now, I never imagined that those exact words could ever be spoken in that particular order. But sadly, here we are".
Shortly after that FCC responded, asking FOX information of which affiliated stations may have aired the episode. "But instead of sending the entire trove of complaints, the FCC sent Fox just a sample complaint identifying FOX station KDFW in Dallas," Variety reported.
The network itself has also released a statement, saying it was puzzled by FCC's action because it has "responded to all of the questions related to the substance" of the investigation. "We will respond in greater detail to the Commission in due course," the network added.
