Thanks to the good ol’ first amendment and free speech, animated shows have the ability to parody just about anyone and anything. From South Park to the Simpsons, we’ve seen all types of celebrity parodies over the years -- some a little more harsh than others. Kanye West has had a long career with some outlandish moments in the media and South Park aimed to capture all of this with the 2009 episode “Fishsticks”. In the episode, a corny joke about fish sticks goes viral and everyone in America thinks the joke is funny -- everyone but Kayne West. Over the years, Family Guy has tackled everything from C-list celebs to politicians. So when show creator Seth MacFarlane decided to do an AMA on Reddit, fans pounced at the chance to ask him about his celebrity encounters over the years. The response for the worst reaction to his show came from actor Adrian Bordy. If you think celebrity lawsuits and threats against animated companies are something new -- think again. Way back in the 1930s, Warner Bros. released two cartoons: Bingo Crosbyana and Let It Be Me. Both cartoons featured a carticture of the singer Bing Crosby, first showing him as a fly in Bingo Crosbyana and then a rooster in Let It Be Me.
Of course, we would all love to know what the actual celebrities think of these portrayals and some of them were pretty much outraged! From lawsuits being filed to some angry rants, check out celebrities like JLo and Tom Cruise who couldn’t stand their animated counterparts.
