Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle is calling for a boycott of Judd Apatow films after the comedy director called President Trump a Nazi on Twitter.

“Conservatives: join me in forever boycotting Judd Apatow’s work,” the Republican wrote on Twitter Tuesday morning. “Hardly have to ask as his movies are terrible. This is disgusting.”

Mr. Cagle, who is running for governor, was referencing a tweet by Mr. Apatow about the president’s zero tolerance policy on illegal immigration.

“He’s a Nazi,” Mr. Apatow wrote of the president Monday afternoon. “He wants no judicial process. He kidnapped children and commits acts of violence for political gain and to support his racist views. He admires violent dictators. Trump is a Nazi. The debate is over. Soon we will have proof he is a Nazi supported by the Russians.”

Mr. Apatow served as a producer for the 2013 comedy “Anchorman 2,” which was filmed in Atlanta, due to the state’s film tax credits, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Mr. Apatow’s wife, actress Leslie Mann, has also filmed “Blockers,” “Vacation” and “The Change-Up” in Atlanta.
