Celebrities Who Just Can't Stand Tucker Carlson
Nov 15 2020
Conservative firebrand and bow-tie enthusiast Tucker Carlson is always ready to share his controversial opinions on Fox News. To his fans, he's a populist hero speaking truth to power, but his critics have accused him of spouting dangerous views. Here are some of the celebs who can't stand Tucker Carlson.
As protests and demonstrations swept across the country in the wake of George Floyd's death while in police custody in late May 2020, Carlson took aim at corporations supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as celebrities who donated to bail funds used to aid arrested protesters across the country. During a June 2020 episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, he said,
"Big companies - cynical, soulless, craven corporations like Pepsi, Intel, and AirBnB are funding this chaos. They're giving money to Black Lives Matter, which is pushing to defund the police. But it isn't just major corporations that are fueling all of this."
Carlson called out numerous celebs, but specifically cited "Old Town Road" rapper Lil Nas X for using his massive social media following to encourage donations. He said,
"Imagine if he had used those followers instead to help small businesses destroyed by the riots he helped incite."
That bold claim caught the Grammy Award-winning artist's attention. Lil Nas X tweeted,
"This man just lied and told millions of people on national television that I was inciting riots. You can't make this up."
