Judd Apatow is ''disgusted'' by the sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood.

The 50-year-old filmmaker is disappointed by the allegations brought against the likes of Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and others.

Speaking during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, he said: ''My instinct is always to say the thing they say don't say, which is like it concerns me as a father of two daughters it concerns me, but you shouldn't have to have daughters to get that it's disgusting. You should be able to say as the owner of a bird, I'm disgusted. Everybody should be disgusted. It's horrible ... Women always knew men were disgusting and now men are going, 'I guess we are disgusting.' We didn't know how terrible that we were.''

It comes after Judd called on The Weinstein Company to be shut down after he was accused of sexually harassing a number of female employees and actresses over a period of almost three decades.

He said: ''Who gives a s**t [about the company]? Shut it down, shut it down. We have enough 'Project Runway'. People know what I'm doing. If I'm in the office, and the door is closed, they know I'm secretly eating red velvet cupcakes.''

And Judd hopes it will lead to a drastic change in the treatment of women in the film industry.

He added: ''This is leading to a new examination of how women are treated in this industry and hopefully we can create a new environment where women feel supported when they speak out against creeps like Harvey Weinstein.''
