Seth MacFarlane, creator of a variety of Fox network shows including “Family Guy,” and Steve Levitan, co-creator of “Modern Family,” which is produced by 20th Century Fox TV, both recently expressed their personal conflicts in working under 21st Century Fox, which owns the Fox television network as well as Fox News.
“This is fringe s—, and it’s business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company,” MacFarlane tweeted in relation to a Fox News segment in which Tucker Carlson told viewers to believe the opposite of what the media reports. On Monday, MacFarlane donated donated $2.5 million to National Public Radio.
Levitan echoed MacFarlane’s comments.
“Let me officially join Seth MacFarlane in saying I’m disgusted to work at a company that has anything whatsoever to do with @FoxNews. This bulls— is the opposite of what #ModernFamily stands for,” Levitan said on Twitter.
