The Hill reports:
Language learning platform Babbel apologized Tuesday for its ad being aired during Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” which the company called “repugnant.” Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Babbel claiming to blacklist Tucker Carlson’s show. Several companies pulled their ads from Carlson’s series in the last year.
When the anchor in December 2018 said the “immigration crisis” in America makes the country “poorer and dirtier and more divided,” insurance company Pacific Life, personal finance website NerdWallet and SmileDirectClub all pulled their ads.
If you saw our ad on Tucker Carlson’s show, you’re right to be upset. We are too. While we did place our ad with Fox, we did not know it would air on a show so repugnant and at odds with our mission and values. We are blacklisting the show going forward. We are deeply sorry.

It’s clear you also think the millions of hard-working Americans who watch Tucker’s show are repugnant as well
This is a contemptible tweet, @BabbelUSA, and the disrespect you’ve shown conservatives will not be forgotten soon
