This new show on Fox called Allen Gregory has been so hyped up because it was co-created by Jonah Hill. I saw him in an interview on Attack of the Show a couple of weeks ago talking about how awesome this show was going to be.
I have seen previews for movies that he was in but they never interested me enough to go see them. Since I haven’t really seen him in anything, I didn’t really know him well enough to judge whether I would like the show or not. I figured that because he was so popular that I was sure it would have to be hilarious.
Tonight was the series premiere and I was so beyond mortified.
From what I could tell, Allen Gregory who was adopted by a gay man voiced by French Stewart has been home schooled by his adopted fathers “boyfriend” who turns out to really be straight.
His adopted father is going broke so he was forced to send Allen Gregory to public school with his adopted sister who nobody really likes and comedy is supposed to ensue.
Because his father is going broke, he is forcing his “boyfriend” to get a job but he doesn’t want to get a job.
Allen Gregory and his adopted father treat everyone like they are second class citizens while they are the superior beings. They brings bullying to a whole new low.
I thought it was going to be so great that TV would finally have a gay couple who were raising children but it turns out that it was all a big fat lie. Only one of the two in the couple are gay, the other one is being forced to be gay against his will and I am feeling sick to my stomach thinking about how wrong that plot is.
Dear Jonah Hill, don’t bring gay people down in your sick twisted show by making them out to be these horrible people who are forcing straight people to be gay so that you can get a laugh out of it. It isn’t funny at all. And you are not helping anyone’s causing with all of the bullying in your cartoon either.
I won’t even go into how disturbed I was that a so-called 7-year-old child was sexually attracted to his principal who was in her 60’s. What was that? Reverse pedophilia?
Come on Jonah Hill, I don’t know you but I know you are better than that. Oh and you French Stewart, I can’t believe that you would be involved in this garbage.
I won’t be watching this show next week, I can’t wait for Bob’s Burgers to come back on.
