Joining in the chorus was also Modern Family co-creator Steve Levitan, who likewise made it clear that he stands with MacFarlane - and against Fox, despite the fact that 20th Century Fox Television produces his long-running sitcom. Modern Family is produced by the TV division of 20th Century Fox, which owns Fox News.

"Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane, "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig, and prolific filmmaker Judd Apatow, the producer behind movies and TV shows such as "Girls" and "Trainwreck", have all weighed in.

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.

Feig, who helmed the 2016 Melissa McCarthy comedy "Spy", which was distributed by 20th Century Fox, tweeted that he "cannot condone the support their news division promotes toward the immoral and abusive policies and actions taken by this current administration toward immigrant children". "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".

Levitan began expressing anger following the airing of Laura Ingraham's Fox News program Monday night, during which she likened immigrant detention centers to "summer camps" and "boarding schools", arguing that children are treated well, despite being separated from their families upon crossing the southern border. Apatow tweeted Monday. "Imagine if it was your kids".

"In other words, don't think critically, don't consult multiple news sources, and in general, don't use your brain", he wrote.

Powerful entertainment creators connected to the Fox network recently joined forces to denounce Fox News.

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

Levitan had tweeted earlier that he was "disgusted" to work for the company. Who has a movie, TV show, sporting event, news show at Fox? He also called Jeff sessions a "fucking kidnapper" and asked all the Fox stars and executives to speak up. "How can you remain silent when they promote these policies?"
