Levitan's disdain for Fox News runs deeper, as he said the network's "23-hour-a day support for the NRA, conspiracy theories and [President] Trump's lies gets harder to swallow every day as I drive onto that lot to make a show about inclusion". "This bulls-t is the opposite of what #ModernFamily stands for", he tweeted on Monday night.

MacFarlane, who kicked off the producers' show of dissent by criticizing Fox News host Tucker Carlson for telling viewers to "always assume the opposite of whatever they're telling you on the big news stations", followed his social media statements by donating $2 million to NPR and $500,000 to its Los Angeles affiliate KPCC, according to Deadline.

Fox News and its entertainment divisions may be operated by separate companies in the future.

"Not one new person who works for Fox or at Fox has spoken up strongly about their news channel supporting ripping families apart", Apatow later tweeted. "Just blindly obey Fox News" MacFarlane wrote Saturday in response to a tweet from CNN's Brian Stelter, who quoted Carlson's plea.

Director Judd Apatow, who said he hasn't worked with Fox since 2002, called on those who work at the company to speak out.

He also tweeted "Michael Tammero at Fox News is assisting kidnappers (The President and his administration) who are holding children for ransom. He IS the problem".

Modern Family has racked up more than a dozen Emmy awards and continues to be a ratings juggernaut for ABC.

On Monday, Apatow, who has created TV shows for 20th Century Fox, called for Fox network's stars to condemn Trump and his "propaganda arm", Fox News, over coverage of migrant families at the U.S. -Mexico border.

Paul Feig also chimed in on Tuesday.

Feig tweeted, "I have made two films for 20th Century Fox and love the people in the movie and TV divisions".

Levitan later backtracked, expressing respect for senior Fox group executives Peter Rice, Dana Walden and Gary Newman. "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".
