"Modern Family" Executive Producer Steve Levitan on Tuesday announced via Twitter he was cutting ties with Fox over news coverage. 

"I look forward to seeing #ModernFamily through to the end and then, sale or no sale, setting up shop elsewhere," he wrote. "Fox Studio has been a wonderful home for most of my career – so many amazing people there who share the concerns about Fox News but aren't in the position to speak out. I have no problem with fact-based conservatism (such as WSJ), but Fox News' 23-hour-a-day support of the NRA, conspiracy theories, and Trump's lies gets harder to swallow every day as I drive onto that lot to make a show about inclusion."

Modern Family is produced by 20th Century Fox TV and has aired on ABC since 2009. 

Levitan later issued a statement to Deadline, saying he has "great respect and admiration for Dana Walden, Gary Newman, Peter Rice, and everyone at 20th Century Fox TV studio who have treated me so well for almost two decades. For now, I will take some time to see where these people land, and at that point I will make a decision about my future."
