Seth MacFarlane won’t host the Oscars again

Seth MacFarlane’s host gig is now officially an Academy once-off, with the polarising emcee announcing on Twitter that he won’t bestow 2014’s (or any year thereafter) Oscars audience with boob songs, Rihanna/ Chris Brown jokes and a slew of controversial jibes.

With many critics slamming him for being “racist, sexist and mean-spirited” MacFarlane – whether public vitriol catalysed this announcement or not – responded to @CrusePhoto’s 'Would you host the Oscars again if asked?' tweet with a staunch 'No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though.'

Of course, this isn’t the first time the Family Guy come Ted star has doubted that the coveted role will turn into a recurrent gig.

As Daily Life pointed out though, the very act of questioning MacFarlane on a re-appearance was based on the assumption that “MacFarlane would actually be asked to return!” Who knows though? Not everyone found his performance so deeply offensive. Did you?
