Terri Schiavo's Family Boycotts Fox's Family Guy Sponsors After Recent Attack

New York, NY ( -- The family of Terri Schiavo has officially launched a new boycott of the sponsors of the Fox program "The Family Guy" after the show mocked Terri's death just days before the fifth anniversary of it. The program included a satire titled "Terri Schiavo: The Musical."

In this sketch, Terri is mocked and the memory of the suffering she endured ridiculed as she is portrayed as someone on a number of mechanical life support systems. She is referred to as a vegetable and the sketch ends with characters calling for pulling the plug.

Terri's brother, Bobby Schindler, previously told today that both inferences in the Family Guy episode are false regarding Terri's case.

Now, the Schindler family has started the "Enough is Enough" campaign to respond to the Fox program by boycotting its sponsors and sponsoring a petition to the Family Guy's sponsors.

"We were outraged that Fox and its sponsors would so heartlessly ridicule my sister's death by forced starvation," Schindler said in an email to Full story.
