Hollywood producers speak out against Fox over immigration stance

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

"I have made two films for 20th Century Fox and love the people in the movie and TV divisions", Feig tweeted on Tuesday. "How can you remain silent when they promote these policies?", Apatow tweeted on Monday.

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. "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. Last November, he switched agencies from WME to CAA, as he started negotiations on a potential new overall deal with Fox TV.

Refresh for updates Adam Scott, co-star of the Fox sitcom Ghosted, has added his voice to the growing opposition - both inside and outside the Fox entertainment family - against Fox News and what the actor calls the network's "support for & blatant lying about state-sponsored child abuse".

Representatives for Fox News and 21st Century Fox declined comment.

But internal tensions have boiled over in the wake of Fox News' coverage of the Trump administration and its policies toward immigration.

One of the entertainers who has been most outspoken about the injustices of the Trump era-and that is a stiff competition-is Judd Apatow, who created or co-created Fox shows such as Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared, and made recent movies for Fox, including Spy.

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

Seth MacFarlane said he is "embarrassed" to work for Fox News's parent company, and it turns out a lot of his Hollywood peers are too. Modern Family airs on ABC but is produced by 20th Century Fox.

Paul Feig also chimed in on Tuesday. On Monday, Apatow joined the burgeoning chorus of entertainers speaking out about 20th Century Fox and Fox News.
