Bannon, the founder of Brietbart and former chief strategist of Donald Trump, is set to speak with New Yorker editor David Remnick at an event titled, "The Ideology of Trumpism", on October 5th.
"I will not take part in an event that normalizes hate", Apatow said via Twitter, calling on the magazine to cancel Bannon's portion of the event.
"To interview Bannon is not to endorse him", David Remnick said.
That's good. Remnick also deserves credit for something far more significant: Giving Ronan Farrow's stellar investigative work on Harvey Weinstein a safe harbor previous year after NBC failed to provide adequate support.
Remnick's comments to staff were tweeted by New Yorker reporter Philip Gourevitch.

He said one in five children experience bullying, and that 16 per cent of children now are victims of cyberbullying. Melania Trump speaks at the FPBP Summit on cyberbullying in Maryland on August 20, 2018.
Bannon scolded the New Yorker's backtrack and expressed his disappointment. "But I would have thought that the point of a festival of ideas was to expose the audience to ideas". Director Ava DuVernay lamented that the magazine was selling tickets to see a man who had helped white nationalists reach the mainstream.
He then said concern from others about the setting of the interview, which he was due to conduct on-stage, had made him change his mind.
No one wants a festival of ideas to turn into a cozy chat among like-minded friends. "It's obvious that no matter how tough the questioning, Bannon is not going to burst into tears and change his view of the world". I am not so fragile in my beliefs that Steve Bannon or Milo or any one of their ilk will be able to convince me that we should build the wall or lock her up, but if you don't want to be exposed to risky ideas, I'm sure Bo Burnham's talk will be a nice, safe space. He added, "I have the freedom to refuse to share a festival with him".
In the end, though, Remnick said the outcry led him to conclude there were better ways to engage with Bannon - who would have been paid an honorarium and other fees for taking part in the festival.
