Fox News’ resident homophobe Tucker Carlson‘s hateful antics may finally be catching up to him as more and more major advertisers cut ties following racist remarks he made on his show earlier this week.
It all started on Monday, when the admitted gay basher threw a temper tantrum over the George Floyd protests.
“This may be a lot of things, this moment we are living through,” Carlson raged, “but it is definitely not about Black lives, and remember that when they come for you. And at this rate, they will.”
“No matter what they tell you, it has very little to do with Black lives,” the 51-year-old frat boy babbled on. “If only it did.”
Many accused Carlson of “scaremongering about the Black community.” In response, several major advertisers began pulling ads from Tucker Carlson Tonight, including The Walt Disney Company, Papa John’s, Poshmark, and T-Mobile.
T-Mobile’s CEO, Mike Sievert, went so far as to tweet, “Bye-bye, Tucker Carlson!”
Same. We aren’t running ads on that show and we won’t be running ads on that show in the future. Bye-bye, Tucker Carlson!

In an attempt to stop the bleeding, a spokesperson for the network put out a statement saying the “they” Carlson kept referring to wasn’t Black people. He was talking about Democrats or, um, local politicians or, you know, just liberals, in general. Or something.

Of course, there were plenty of Fox News devotees who took to Twitter to stand up for Carlson’s right to be racist. Pretty soon, the hashtag #IStandWithTuckerCarlson was trending on Twitter, but it was quickly hijacked by people who would like to see the cable news personality fired.

#IStandWithTuckerCarlson I love seeing this trending, only to open it and see that most people don’t stand with Tucker Carlson. He’s a tool.

#IStandWithTucker is a great honey trap to find accounts you want to mute and block.

The hashtag #IStandWithTuckerCarlson is a fucking gold mine of laughably stupid people defending a rich, white racist who thinks of them as mere commoners. Just what I needed to start my Friday! pic.twitter.com/Efr5NTudIz

Whether Fox News takes any meaningful action against Carlson remains to be seen, but if history is any indication, he’ll back back on the air tonight spewing more racist garbage and bragging about hate crimes he’s committed against gay people.

So even this shithead is saying the Police is made up of right wing bigots. I imagine what BLM is talking about is getting rid of the bad apples and that means these shitheads. Not getting rid of the Police.

BLM is for the abolition and defunding of police. Being killed by a cop is a leading cause of death for young black men in the US.
This is Fox News’s game.
Their people say racist things, then FOX lies and pretends what they said isn’t racist. Media helps them push out this message and they have it both ways. They get to wink to their racist base who all got the pro-racist message, while publicly playing the victim and claiming that of course they aren’t racist.
He was right to say he did NOT support the abolition of the police, but wrong to say nothing else. As mayor, he should’ve taken the bull the by the horns and vowed to REBUILD it from the ground up. This video was humiliating. And oh, that “dancing with the people” montage is another thing wrong with our (I’m Black) community; the equivalent of Hillary Clinton’s DNC church fish fry. Stop falling for the con! Sophisticated political operation is what’s required, rather than emotionalism. The way White politicians approach the Black community is a reflection of how we approach the world. We are vulnerable to pandering and condescending confessions. STOP IT. It’s not a good look. Issues and solutions only.
” and remember that when *they* come for you. And at this rate, *they* will.”
By “they,” Tucker isn’t referring to blacks, or to ultra-left ideologues.
He is referring to staffers from the mental hospital equipped with giant nets and tranquilizer darts.
He’s rich, let him finance his own hate show.
I once had a table next to Mr. Carlson at lunch at a DC restaurant. Calling him a jackass is being kind. Insisted on smoking at his table, never mind that it was against the law and could have cost the restaurant their license. A loud, obnoxious opinionated bore..

Watching that video for 25 minutes made my blood boil, but then I realized that his opinion will be seen only by a minority of TV viewers. Nevertheless, he is indeed a vile, racist, talking head who must live a miserable life without love, kindness, or peace.
