Perhaps THIS will be the final straw for advertisers. If they collectively pull their ads from Tucker Carlson’s show, he could be off the air faster than you can say Bill O’Reilly.
What did Carlson do?
Watch the clip below from the opening monologue of his program on Monday night.
As The Washington Post notes, Carlson didn’t clarify who he was referring to when he said “they.”
His critics believe he meant “black people are coming to get you, white people.” A short clip of Carlson’s segment quickly went viral Monday night, prompting some to again urge advertisers to boycott his show. A Fox News spokesperson clarified Carlson’s remarks on Tuesday.
“Tucker’s warning about ‘when they come for you’ was clearly referring to Democratic leaders and inner city politicians,” the spokesperson told The Washington Post in an emailed statement.“
We’ve been down this road before. In 2018, Carlson said immigration in America makes the country “poorer, dirtier and more divided.” The program lost dozens of advertisers over that and ratings crashed.
