Family Guy dog“Family Guy” created a social media frenzy last night after shockingly killing off the show’s long-time canine cartoon companion, beloved dog Brian Griffin.

The character, who’s been voiced by show creator Seth MacFarlane in all 11 seasons, died after getting run over by a car in a tearjerker that left fans on Twitter scrambling for tissues and answers.

On Trendrr, the show went from being the 22nd most-trending show of the week to the 7th for last night’s episode.

The outrage has moved beyond social TV circles: Change.org has filed a petition asking Fox to bring back the character, with over 1,500 people signing so far.
