Sarah Palin is quite the fan of Facebook — she famously railed against David Letterman on the site — so it should come as no surprise that she took to the social networking site in order to post a complaint about the recent episode of ‘Family Guy‘ that mocked her son, Trig.

Asking, “When is enough, enough?” Palin called the ‘Family Guy’ episode, which included a girl with Down Syndrome saying her mother is “the former governor of Alaska,” a “kick in the gut.”

Palin then decided to post her daughter Bristol’s response to the Fox spoof. “If the writers of a particularly pathetic cartoon show thought they were being clever in mocking my brother and my family yesterday, they failed,” Bristol was quoted as saying. “All they proved is that they’re heartless jerks.”

‘Family Guy’ has mocked Palin before including a 2008 episode depicting Nazis wearing a McCain-Palin campaign button.

The Facebook comment is titled “Fox Hollywood – What a Disappointment,” seemingly separating the network airing ‘Family Guy’ from the channel that now employs Palin, Fox News.
