Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol are responding to comments on the Fox show "Family Guy" belittling her family and her disabled son Trig. Although Palin is a contributor for Fox News Channel that hasn't stopped her from criticizing the show on sister company Fox Broadcasting.

Palin, via her Facebook page, complained that the "Family Guy program delivered “another kick in the gut” with a joke targeting her family.

In Sunday’s episode, “Family Guy” shows a girl with Down syndrome saying, “My dad is an accountant and my mom is the former governor of Alaska.”

Palin’s son Trig has Down syndrome and she expressed her frustrations on Facebook, saying “Fox Hollywood — what a disappointment.”

Last night, she posted another response that featured her daughter giving her thoughts on the controversy.

"People are asking me to comment on yesterday’s Fox show that felt like another kick in the gut," Palin wrote. "Bristol was one who asked what I thought of the show that mocked her baby brother, Trig (and/or others with special needs), in an episode."

"Instead of answering, I asked her what she thought. Here is her conscientious reply, which is a much more restrained and gracious statement than I want to make," she said.
