“Completely unacceptable” is what Fox News is saying about the mob violence that showed up at Tucker Carlson's house when his wife was getting ready to make dinner. The mob stepped onto his private property and applied enough force to crack the front door. Was it an attempted home invasion by a mob? Why would they crack the door? This wasn't a peaceful assemblage of protesters who gathered on public property.
Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and Fox News President Jay Wallace address threats made towards Tucker Carlson and his family outside their home last night:
**Joint statement from Suzanne Scott, CEO of FOX News & Jay Wallace, President, FOX News:
"The incident that took place at Tucker's home last night was reprehensible. The violent threats and intimidation tactics toward him and his family are completely unacceptable. We as a nation have become far too intolerant of different points of view. Recent events across our country clearly highlight the need for a more civil, respectful, and inclusive national conversation. Those of us in the media and in politics bear a special obligation to all Americans, to find common ground."
Protestors did not merely gather and shout outside Tucker Carlson's home. They broke his oak front door while his wife was home alone. She locked herself inside the pantry to call 9/11 because she feared a home invasion.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson was at his desk Wednesday evening, less than two hours before his 8 p.m. live show, when he suddenly started receiving multiple text messages.
There was some sort of commotion happening outside his home in Northwest D.C.
“I called my wife,” Carlson told The Washington Post in a phone interview. “She had been in the kitchen alone getting ready to go to dinner and she heard pounding on the front door and screaming. ... Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door.”
His wife, thinking it was a home invasion, locked herself in the pantry and called 911, Carlson said. The couple have four children, but none were home at the time.
