  • 'Modern Family' creator joins Judd Apatow, Seth MacFarlane in condemning Fox News

Levitan specifically criticized Fox News for not being critical in its coverage of the Trump administration's policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the USA border.

Fox, based in NY, declined to comment. "Imagine if it was your kids". "This bullshit is the opposite of what Modern Family stands for", he added. That may be going over well with the right-leaning channel's core viewership, but for those entertainment creators who are presently doing business with Fox, it's increasingly become an untenable position - and they're now speaking up against it.

"Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane, "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig, and prolific filmmaker Judd Apatow, the producer behind movies and TV shows such as "Girls" and "Trainwreck", have all weighed in. We all choose who to work with.

Carlson's fellow prime time host, Laura Ingraham on Monday called the detention centers where children are kept in chain-linked fences "summer camps". "But I too can not condone the support their news division promotes toward the immoral and abusive policies and actions taken by this current administration toward immigrant children".

That man is being hailed a hero by shoppers. "He is a true hero because there would have been more victims", Adams said. Ran out a side emergency exit and attempted to run to my vehicle in the parking lot but heard 4 more pops in the lot.

Over the weekend, "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane (a CT native and Rhode Island School of Design alum) tweeted that he was "embarrassed" to work for Fox because of "fringe s***" that aired on Fox News. Who has a movie, TV show, sporting event, news show at Fox?

Actor Adam Scott, who now stars in Fox's "Ghosted", also chastised Fox News following Ingraham's summer camp comparison.

Apatow, the director of comedy hits like "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "Knocked Up", said that he hasn't worked at Fox since 2002, likely referring to the comedy series he created called "Undeclared", which lasted one season on the Fox network. "But I too can not condone the support their news division promotes toward the immoral and abusive policies and actions taken by this current administration toward immigrant children".

"Let me officially join @SethMacFarlane in saying I'm disgusted to work at a company that has anything whatsoever to do with @FoxNews", Levitan wrote.
