Oscars 2013 host Seth MacFarlane isn't getting the best reviews and we think we might know why!

While he's usually pretty funny, MacFarlane seemed to tick people off whenever he joked about Chris Brown and Rihanna's past domestic violence incident.

"This is the story of a man fighting to get back his woman, who's been subjected to unthinkable violence....or as Chris Brown and Rihanna call it, a date movie," he said when introducing the film Django Unchained.

People in the audience laughed but a lot of viewers complained on social media websites like Twitter.

"Just heard Seth MacFarlane's Rihanna/ChrisBrown/DjangoUnchained "joke." Wow. Because domestic violence is HILARIOUS. #wrong," tweeted @JauDee941.

Honestly, we're kind of over it too. It wasn't and isn't a funny situation and really, lets all move on now...

Kim Kardashian and Khloe Khardashian Odom reportedly didn't like the domestic violence joke either! They consoled Chris right away when they saw him at Elton John's Oscars party.

So, what do you think about Seth's joke? Did he go too far?
