Advertisers Bail On Carlson Over Comments On Race

Yahoo Entertainment reports:

Disney and T-Mobile have pulled their advertising from Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show in light of his recent comments about the Black Lives Matter movement and the killing of George Floyd.

Disney has instructed its third-party ad buyer to stop placing ads on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” and that it was not previously aware its ads were running during the show. This isn’t the first time advertisers have pulled out of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in light of incendiary comments he’s made.

In 2018, at least 26 advertisers — including Red Lobster, Lexus, Pfizer, IHOP, SmileDirectClub, NerdWallet and Ancestry — dropped their ads from his show after Carlson said immigrants made America “poorer” and “dirtier.”

Papa John’s has also pulled its ads.
