This outrage at 20th Century Fox has resonated with other similar-minded producers who have programs running on the company, including Steve Levitan, creator of Modern Family, which airs on ABC but is produced by Fox Television.

Levitan was responding to a tweet that cited host Laura Ingraham's commentary Monday night that said migrant detention centers housing children "were essentially summer camps [or] boarding schools".

"So while he "[looks] forward to seeing Modern Family through to the end", Levitan concluded he will be "setting up shop elsewhere". One of the most prominent voices to decry Carlson's words was Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, who now sees several of his creations airing on the network.

Two men in their 80s, one from Osaka's Higashiyodogawa Ward, and another from the city of Ibaraki also perished. The Fire and Disaster Management Agency said 214 people have been treated at hospitals in five prefectures.

Between Seth MacFarlane, Judd Apatow and Paul Feig, numerous top male talents at 20th Century Fox's television and film branches are criticizing the company over its Fox News arm.

Fox News inched closer to becoming the Trump propaganda machine our president so clearly wants it to be earlier this week when Tucker Carlson told viewers to "always assume the opposite of whatever they're telling you on the big news stations".

"In other words, don't think critically, don't consult multiple news sources, and in general, don't use your brain", replied MacFarlane. Apatow tweeted a thank you to Levitan, asking as many people to speak out as possible to change the way Fox News supports destructive policies.

Boyd said his officers have dealt with the driver before, adding he was scouting the area earlier to try and pick up immigrants. He said his deputies are often involved in chases pursuing people suspected of smuggling undocumented immigrants and drugs.

Apatow later wrote, "And I haven't seen one new powerful person who works for or at Fox stand up and say they oppose their support of these cruel policies". We all choose who to work with. "Imagine if it was your kids". Who has a movie, TV show, sporting event, news show at Fox?

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

Levitan had tweeted earlier that he was "disgusted" to work for the company.
