It seems that a number of advertisers on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show have become a bit Tuckered out with Carlson’s constant spew of hate.
6 companies have pulled their advertising from Carlson’s show.
The latest to do so is Bowflex. The company said, "We buy media broadly across many news networks, and do not target ads based on specific programs or hosts. However, we have requested that Fox News remove our ads from airing in conjunction with Tucker Carlson Tonight in the future. Aside from our decision to remove our ads from his show, we have no other association or affiliation with Mr. Carlson."
Pacific Life Insurance Company was the first advertiser to bow out of Carlson’s show and since doing so, the boycott has picked up steam.
Fox News responded to the advertiser effort on Friday by releasing the following statement: "It is a shame that left-wing advocacy groups, under the guise of being supposed ‘media watchdogs,’ weaponize social media against companies in an effort to stifle free speech. We continue to stand by and work with our advertisers through these unfortunate and unnecessary distractions."
As for Carlson, he says, "We're not intimidated."
So let the hate rants continue.
