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

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

Amid nationwide outcry over the Trump administration's policy of separating families at the border, "Modern Family" show-runner Steve Levitan tweeted his decision to leave Fox Studios once his show ends, and director Paul Feig, who has made two films for 20th Century Fox, added that he, too, has problems with Fox News' political coverage.

Seth MacFarlane just put his money where his mouth is when it comes to reporting the news. Apatow tweeted Monday. "Imagine if it was your kids". "Where are the Fox stars and executives speaking up?!" "I think this is the POV of nearly every artist/writer/actor working with the entertainment division at FOX, which is progressive and open minded, but brought down by the despicable news division", she tweeted.

Wexler served as a producer on Fox TV shows "The Good Guys" and "The Grinder" as well as "The Comedians", which aired on Fox-owned network FX. "We are thankful to all who support quality, independent journalism", the statement reads.

The arrest comes just a week after German prosecutors fined Volkswagen $1.2 billion, Esme Nicholson reports for NPR from Berlin . Volkswagen first admitted in 2015 it had rigged millions of diesel engines to cheat on emissions tests.

Apatow later wrote, "And I haven't seen one new powerful person who works for or at Fox stand up and say they oppose their support of these cruel policies". Who has a movie, TV show, sporting event, news show at Fox? "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".

"Modern Family", a mockumentary-style sitcom set in suburban Los Angeles, is in its ninth season and has won more than 20 prime-time Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe.

Levitan, 56, pointed to comments by host Laura Ingraham that child-detention centers were "essentially summer camps".

Feig also denounced Fox News' coverage of Trump's immigration policy in a tweet. "How can you remain silent when they promote these policies?"

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.

Between Seth MacFarlane, Judd Apatow and Paul Feig, numerous top male talents at 20th Century Fox's television and film branches are criticizing the company over its Fox News arm.
