Judd Apatow Slams Supreme Court Decision in Long Anti-Citizens United Twitter Spree

Judd Apatow

The executive producer and one of the main writers of the Fox show, Apatow has forged a career that includes critically acclaimed TV series ("The Larry Sanders Show," "Freaks and Geeks") and successful films ("Knocked Up"). He produced Stiller's "Cable Guy," and Stiller reciprocated with a cameo in "Anchorman," which Apatow produced.

The producer-director unleashed a torrent of frustration over a high court decision that will continue to allow unlimited corporate spending in political campaigns.

Judd Apatow has a few choice words for the Supreme Court. None of them funny.

Leaving comedy aside, Apatow took to Twitter in very serious fashion on Monday morning in the wake of the high court's decision in American Tradition Partnership, Inc. v Bullock, which overturned centuries-long campaign finance regulations in the state of Montana. Essentially, the court upheld, by a count of 5-4, the controversial Citizens United decision that allows corporations and individuals to donate unlimited amounts of money to Super Pacs, which act on behalf of politicians and political causes.

Apatow was clearly angry about the decision; "How many times to do people need to get f---ed before they wake up? The people who bankrupted the country want to make up all the rules." He added that the ruling "was about very rich old men having enough money to get the government to serve them and not you."

Apatow's entire dialogue, which includes some exchanges with followers, is below:
