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.
Levitan then "officially" joined MacFarlane on Monday in condemning Fox, tweeting that he was "disgusted to work at a company that has anything whatsoever to do" with Fox News.
Steven Levitan ("Modern Family", "Just Shoot Me!"), and Paul Feig (whose movies "The Heat" and "Ghostbusters" were filmed in Boston) all voiced their dissatisfaction with Fox News on Twitter this week.

How can you remain silent when they promote these policies?"
Apatow has called on "employees of all of Fox" to "speak up".
Fox, based in NY, declined to comment.
Levitan's disdain for Fox News runs deeper, as he said the network's "23-hour-a day support for the NRA, conspiracy theories and [President] Trump's lies gets harder to swallow every day as I drive onto that lot to make a show about inclusion".
