In a trio of surprising tweets on Tuesday, the Modern Family creator and executive producer said that he can no longer accept his parent company 21st Century Fox allowing Fox News to continue pedaling "conspiracy theories and Trump's lies". "This bull**** is the opposite of what #ModernFamily stands for".
In other words, don't think critically, don't consult multiple news sources, and in general, don't use your brain.
Over the weekend, "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane (a CT native and Rhode Island School of Design alum) tweeted that he was "embarrassed" to work for Fox because of "fringe s***" that aired on Fox News.
Adam Scott, the star of Fox sitcom Ghosted, wrote: "As a FOX employee I'm disgusted by @FoxNews and their support for & blatant lying about state-sponsored child abuse".

In the intervening years, they have developed into the most exciting, destructive and successful one-day team in the world. Surrey had hammered the gargantuan total against Gloucestershire at The Oval during the 2007 Friends Provident Trophy.
Fox News host Laura Ingraham defended her comments comparing the child detention centres to "summer camps" by citing a report on the detention facilities published in the San Diego Union Tribune, with a spokesperson for Fox News requesting that ET Canada include Ingraham's comments in this story.
"Modern Family" has always been the highest-rated comedy on ABC - entering its 11th season this fall - and its syndicated repeats are a staple of Fox-owned TV stations and cable's USA Network.
"I have great respect and admiration for Dana Walden, Gary Newman, Peter Rice and everyone at 20th Century Fox TV studio who have all treated me so well for nearly two decades", Levitan said, per Deadline.
Sean Hannity, the main holdover of the Fox News evening lineup, reportedly has a close relationship with Trumpincluding late-night phone calls after his show.
Actor Adam Scott, who now stars in Fox's Ghosted, also chastised Fox News following Ingraham's summer camp comparison.
Disney raises its bid for Fox to $71 billion
In pre-market trading, Fox shares rose 5.4% to $47.11, Comcast's were marginally lower, while Disney's rose by 1.3% to $107.50. Comcast could try to outbid Disney again, but it hasn't yet responded to today's announcement of a new Disney /Fox deal.
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".
Fox News and its entertainment divisions may be operated by separate companies in the future.
As more information comes out regarding the separation of immigrant children from their families and the rise of detention camps to hold them, Hollywood is speaking out, particularly against 20th Century Fox's own news arm, Fox News. "This is fringe (expletive), and it's business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company". Comcast Corp, however, has made a rival bid for the parts of Fox that Disney had planned to buy. A successful sale would make Fox News an even more significant portion of the company's business.
Mat Baxter, global CEO of Initiative, an ad agency, said the criticism is starting to turn off advertisers from Fox News but also 21st Century Fox.
NBC News quotes Baxter saying: "A lot of people are embarrassed to be associated with the brand because of Fox News". This is not sitting well with some of those who work for the Fox TV network, which, like Fox News, is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.
