Tucker Tells Truth About BLM, They Get Papa John & Disney To Pull Ads From Show

Tucker Carlson scorched Black Lives Matter by reporting the unvarnished truth about their movement, and they pressured many businesses to pull ads from his Fox News show. Papa John’s Pizza, Disney, and T-Mobile are just a few who have succumbed to the leftwing complaining. You don’t want to miss the devastating truth Tucker is telling about BLM and how they are now regretting taking him on.

Walt Disney Co. and other companies, including Papa John’s International Inc. and T-Mobile US Inc., have pulled ads from Tucker Carlson’s primetime show on Fox News Channel following his remarks on the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests — some of which have descended into violent riots.

“This may be a lot of things, this moment we’re living through, but it is definitely not about Black lives,” Carlson said during Monday’s broadcast. “And remember that when they come for you — and at this rate, they will.”

According to Deadline, the companies have pulled ads from Tucker Carlson Tonight due to the host’s views on the widespread protests.

“Anyone who has ever been subjected to the rage of the mob knows the feeling. It’s like being swarmed by hornets. You cannot think clearly. And the temptation is to panic, but you can’t panic,” Carlson warned. “You’ve got to keep your head and tell the truth. Tell the truth. If you show weakness of any kind, they will crush you.”

“That’s America tonight, totally cool,” Carlson doubled-down on Wednesday on BLM-led or inspired protests, saying that “racist lunatics with semiautomatic weapons” want a new “segregation” in the county.

Breitbart reports a spokesperson for Fox News clarified Carlson’s remark, which triggered critics, explaining that his warning was “clearly referring to Democratic leaders and inner-city politicians.”

Judd Legum, founder of the left-leaning ThinkProgress and Popular Information, helped out BLM by putting the pressure on Tucker’s advertisers.

“[Disney] has advertised on Tucker Carlson 29 times in 2020. Popular Information asked Disney if the company planned to continue to sponsor Carlson’s program in light of his recent comments about Black Lives Matter and the company’s stated commitment to racial justice,” Legum said.

Then, Legum updated his cohorts on June 10: “Disney tells Popular Information that it will no longer advertise on Tucker Carlson.”

Other companies including Papa John’s and T-mobile followed suit, but there’s just one big problem. 

A Fox News spokesperson told Deadline that “all national dollars/ads were moved to other programs and there has not been any national money lost.”

“Tell the truth, and the truth is, this is a good country,” Carlson said on Monday. “Better than any other. Of course, we are flawed, but we are trying, unlike most places, and we have nothing to be ashamed of — none of us.”

Also, the public backlash against these companies and BLM have been brutal. 

“Disgraceful Anti-Free Speech, Racist Identify Politics pushing @Disney @PapaJohns and @TMobile Pull Ads from @tuckercarlson—Denigrating African Americans to placate Marxist Front group #BLM #1984America,” tweeted ConserValidity.

“Disney! The Walt Disney Co.!!!! Supposed to be the happiest place on earth but they own ABC News and other outlets as well newspapers among others. Yet they PREACH H-A-T-E every single day. But no on is trying to Disney BOYCOTT DISNEY!!!!!!” tweeted “Thungawd.”

“@PapaJohns now supports the Marxist BLM organization. Let them know BLM is anti-family and they want social control, and that Papa John’s will no longer be our pizza of choice,” tweeted “Cape Fear Patrioteers.”

“I will be leaving T-Mobile in order to find an American loving phone supplier .. I hope others will follow.. Disney Pulls Ads from Tucker Carlson’s Fox News Show over BLM Protest Coverage,” tweeted Carolyn S Knight.

“Well FU ⁦@Disney I’m standing with Tucker. Because no matter what you think, violent rioting is not the answer…it is violent! Is that what you stand for now? Violence? Because this ravaging of America wasn’t about Floyd,” tweeted Twitter user “Nancy.”

“I support @TuckerCarlson @FoxNews for his courage to stand up to the BLM and AntiFa mobs. Exposing these anarchical terrorist organizations HELPS the black community, as these anti-American criminals are making things worse!” tweeted Ladd McNamara, M.D.

This comes on the same day that Carlson made an exit of his own and left the Daily Caller. After co-founding the conservative digital outlet a decade ago, Carlson had his one-third stake bought out in recent days, supposedly to free him to focus on his four-year-old FNC show.

Tucker Carlson may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but you have to give him credit. He refuses to kowtow to the BLM and Antifa thugs and calls them out for who they truly are. We also bet the owners of Fox News, the Murdoch’s, are seething.

They have been on a crusade to take Fox News to the left, and it seems Tucker Carlson’s reporting is really disappointing them. Good for Tucker. It’s great to see a big cable TV star stick to his principles, no matter what the cost.
