Apatow calls on Fox's talent to condemn the network's handling of this ordeal.
Judd Apatow posted a series of tweets that criticized 21st Century Fox, as well as its CEO Rupert Murdoch and his family, in relation to the network's coverage of the Trump administration separating immigrant children from their parents. In doing so, the filmmaker believes that Fox's staff should be more vocal in denouncing how this latest political controversy is presented to the public.
Apatow called Jeff Sessions a "fucking kidnapper!" before decrying the Murdoch family for supporting these policies. "Where are the Fox stars and executives speaking up?! Imagine if it was your kids. Who has a movie, TV show, sporting event, news show at Fox? How can you remain silent when they promote these policies?" questions Apatow.
Furthermore, the man behind such films as Superbad and Bridesmaids admits "I haven’t worked with Fox since 2002. That family promotes evil ideas and greed and corruption. We all choose who to work with. I understand why that is easier for some than others but many powerful people are powerful enough to speak up to their bosses at a moment like this."
Seth McFarlane and Steve Levitan, the man behind the hit sitcom Modern Family, have both taken to Twitter to shame Fox for their handling of Trump's "zero tolerance" approach to undocumented migrants.
