Modern Family Co-Creator Steve Levitan Is ‘Disgusted’ to Work With Fox

"I understand why that is easier for some than others but many powerful people are powerful enough to speak up to their bosses at a moment like this", Apatow replied. No matter which sale goes through, Fox News will splinter off with Fox Broadcasting, Fox Business Network and Fox Sports, which will all be spun off into a new, terrifying monstrosity tentatively called New Fox, but will probably just be called Trump Town or some shit.

Paul Feig, who directed 20th Century Fox's "Spy" and "The Heat", also expressed his outrage over Fox News' coverage. He also showed support for MacFarlane, who had said he was "embarrassed" to work for the media giant in light of Fox News host Tucker Carlson telling viewers not to believe other news outlets.


"In other words", MacFarlane tweeted, "don't think critically, don't consult multiple news sources, and in general, don't use your brain". The Trump administration is detaining children in 17 states, including more than 2,000 taken from their parents after they crossed the US border illegally. After calling conservative pundit Anne Coulter "the face of pure evil" over comments she made regarding the current administration's inhumane immigration policies on Fox News, Levitan announced that he will be leaving his 20th Century Fox Television overall deal and "setting up shop elsewhere" after Modern Family wraps up its upcoming season. Who has a movie, TV show, sporting event, news show at Fox? MacFarlane's tweet prompted Apatow, who once produced comedies for 20th Century Fox TV, to call upon Fox showrunners and actors to boycott the "propaganda arm of this evil administration".

Levitan then "officially" joined MacFarlane on Monday in condemning Fox, tweeting that he was "disgusted to work at a company that has anything whatsoever to do" with Fox News. "This bullshit is the opposite of what #ModernFamily stands for". "How can you remain silent when they promote these policies?"
