This could be one of the worst self-owns of all time. Ladies and gentlemen, Twitchy regular writer and director Judd Apatow:
Supporting Fox is supporting a company that is ok with violence against women. https://t.co/1bJWLFjCS3

With that logic, supporting Hollywood is supporting an industry that is ok with violence against women, right? Should we boycott all film and TV?
It takes quite pair to say this considering what continues to be discovered about that sewer of an industry you work in. https://t.co/6uANxCQlfg

Hypocrite puts it lightly.
Apatow was responding to the latest on Bill O’Reilly and his alleged $32 million settlement with lawyer and fellow Fox New personality Lis Wiehl. From the New York Times piece:
Bill O'Reilly spent $32,000,000 to settle a sexual harassment complaint with a network analyst and then Fox *renewed his contract.* 😮 pic.twitter.com/WesbHvV2sv

But unlike Hollywood, Fox News has put in place new procedures to stop harassment. Here’s Fox News’ response to the New York Times:

When will Apatow call for his own industry to transform with new leaders and an overhaul of management?
