Seth MacFarlane Donates $2.5 Million to NPR After Tweet About Fox Network

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

"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". As The Wrap reported, it seems likely that the producer's properties will be sold to Comcast or Disney in the upcoming mega-sale being contemplated by his employers, 21st Century Fox. Filmmaker Judd Apatow, a sometimes-collaborator of Feig's, on Monday called for more Fox talent to step forward and put pressure on the company. Who has a movie, TV show, sporting event, news show at Fox? "Where are the Fox stars and executives speaking up?!" "How can you remain silent when they promote these policies?"

Of Carlson's comments, MacFarlane tweeted, "In other words, don't think critically, don't consult multiple news sources, and in general, don't use your brain". Apatow conceded that he worked with Fox on his 2002 sitcom, Undeclared, but now, he's calling on the media corporation's most powerful figures to condemn the support and positive coverage Murdoch and the news division give to Trump's policies. "This is fringe s--, and it's business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company".

On Tuesday, Levitan, the co-creator of "Modern Family", which is produced by 2oth Century Fox, bolstered MacFarlane's comments with a tweet expressing his disgust at working for Fox. "This bullshit is the opposite of what #ModernFamily stands for". And predictably, Fox News has toed the commander-in-chief's line, with Laura Ingraham on Monday going so far as to dub these establishments "essentially summer camps [or] boarding schools".

Children Separated From Parents At Us Border Sob, Wail Desperately
He ties that racist language to his detention of thousands of children and family separation policy. Children traveling with the adults have been separated and placed in detention centers.

Levitan and MacFarlane are under overall deals with 20th Century Fox Television.

He later tweeted that conservative commentator Ann Coulter was "the face of pure evil" after she falsely referred to immigrant children being separated from their parents at the border as "child actors" while appearing on Fox News.
