“Modern Family” co-creator Steve Levitan lashed out at Fox, which produces the hit show for ABC, saying he is “digusted” to work for any company “that has anything whatsoever to do with” Fox’s cable network that airs Laura Ingraham’s show.
- “Modern Family” is produced by Fox’s television studio division but airs on ABC, which is a common arrangement among production companies and networks.
- In a tweet sent June 18, 2018, Levitan pointed out that Laura Ingraham’s comments about family detention centers being “summer camps” is completely the opposite of the message his show is about.
- “Modern Family,” as its name suggests, portrays a 21st century extended family that includes a divorced father who remarried a Colombian single mother, a gay couple with adopted daughter and the more traditional Dunphy family — who has its own share of drama.
Let me officially join @SethMacFarlane in saying I’m disgusted to work at a company that has anything whatsoever to do with @FoxNews. This bullshit is the opposite of what #ModernFamily stands for. https://t.co/dnvIbgoIyA
