Top Fox TV Producers Criticize Fox News Over Immigration Commentary

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

Levitan added that he doesn't mind conservative views when they are based on facts; however, he feels "Fox News' 23-hour-a-day support of the NRA, conspiracy theories and Trump's lies gets harder to swallow every day", especially since he's worked on a show marked by diversity and inclusion. They declined to comment.

"I have great respect and admiration for Dana Walden, Gary Newman, Peter Rice and everyone at 20th Century Fox TV studio who have all treated me so well for nearly two decades", Levitan followed up in a statement.

The uproar comes as Fox prepares to sell off most of its operations to Disney, including the studio that makes "Modern Family". "MacFarlane's contribution is set to be used as a challenge grant in our ongoing fundraising campaign, as part of that effort to encourage others to step up for his cause".

On Fox News on Sunday, aggressively right-wing commentator Ann Coulter accused the migrant children of being actors.

"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.

Some powerful Hollywood producers and directors have criticized Twenty-First Century Fox Inc over its news commentators' support for the US immigration crackdown that separates children from their parents, with one award-winning producer threatening to take his work elsewhere.

Among those weighing in were creators of hit shows produced by or aired on 21st Century Fox, which is owned by the same company as Fox News, with one threatening to take his show elsewhere due to the coverage.

Filmmaker Judd Apatow also called on Fox talent to stand up and protest the immigration policy, which has been bitterly criticized by politicians of both parties.

On Saturday, comedian and television show creator Seth MacFarlane took to Twitter to express his outrage at views being expressed on Fox News. "How can you remain silent when they promote these policies?", Apatow tweeted on Monday.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane and Modern Family showrunner Steve Levitan are among some of the stars speaking out about Fox Studios following a Fox News broadcast.

Mat Baxter, global CEO of Initiative, an ad agency, said the criticism is starting to turn off advertisers from Fox News but also 21st Century Fox. Comcast Corp., the largest USA cable company, has made its own bid for the Fox assets.
