Seth MacFarlane isn't the type to apologize because one of his jokes ruffled a few feathers.

The creator of 'Ted' and 'Family Guy' took to Twitter to defend a joke he made during the Oscar nominations, which he co-hosted with Emma Stone, reports CBS.

"I read 'Amour' was co-produced by Austria and Germany," MacFarlane cracked about Best Picture contender "Amour"

"The last time Austria and Germany co-produced something it was Hilter, but this was much better."

MacFarlane, who will also host the upcoming Academy Awards, got lot of backlash over the Hitler comments and took to his Twitter account to try to settle some of the anger. 

 

Yes, Arnold, as in Schwarzenegger. 

According to E! Online, there's no word from the Academy about MacFarlane's joke or if it's just a preview of what's to come on Oscar night, February 24th.
