Levitan added: "Fox Studio has been a wonderful home for most of my career - so many fantastic people there who share the concerns about @Fox News but aren't in a position to speak out".

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

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".

Levitan specifically criticized Fox News for not being critical in its coverage of the Trump administration's policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the USA border.

Chris Sosa is the Senior Editor at AlterNet. (Even though some of its creators' other recent opinions seem decidedly less enlightened.) Perhaps with more creators directing negative attention toward 20th Century Fox over Fox News, other talent signed to the company will follow suit.


Fox News and its entertainment divisions may be operated by separate companies in the future. He also called Jeff sessions a "fucking kidnapper" and asked all the Fox stars and executives to speak up.

Last night, FNC host Laura Ingraham called child detention centers at the U.S. -Mexico border "summer camps".

Feig wrote on Twitter that while he loved those working in the movie and TV divisions of Fox, "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". "It's business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company". Apatow tweeted Monday. "Imagine if it was your kids. 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".

Conservative commentators on Fox News have spoken in support of the policy.

Just days after MacFarlane tweeted that Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson made him "embarrassed" to work for the company, the creator of "Family Guy" donated $2 million to NPR and $500,000 to its Los Angeles station KPCC, a representative for MacFarlane confirmed to ABC News.
