Tucker Carlson 'not angry' about being fired by Fox News

 July 10, 2023

Fans of media personality Tucker Carlson were shocked earlier this year when he was abruptly fired by Fox News. Yet while Carlson admitted to being surprised by the move, the host says he isn't bothered. 

According to Business Insider, Carlson aired his feelings on the subject during an interview last week with British actor and podcast host Russell Brand, saying, "This is not the first time I've been fired."

"I'm not angry about it"

"And I think in our business, when you work for a big company in media and you know, you say what you think, there's an expectation that you could get fired," he continued.

"I didn't expect to get fired that morning at all in April. So I was shocked, but I wasn't really shocked and I wasn't mad. It's not my company," Carlson explained.

"When you work for someone else, that person reserves the right, and in fact has inherently the right to decide whether you work there or not," the host pointed out.

"I don't know why I was fired — I really don't. I'm not angry about it. You can believe me or not, but I think you can feel that I'm not. And you know, I wish Fox well," Carlson remarked.

Fox News caught pushing woke causes on its employees

Since his departure from Fox News, Carlson has begun posting short videos to his Twitter account, most of which have racked up tens of millions of views.

Firing Carlson is not the only controversy to envelop Fox News in recent months, as Daily Wire host Matt Walsh made waves in June by publishing leaked material showing the company pushes woke causes on its employees.

Examples include promoting the Trevor Project, an organization Walsh described as hosting "a sexually explicit chat room that connects children as young as 13 years old with 'LGBT' adults."

Children's book promotes "coming out as gay or transgender"

Fox News also suggested its employees read "a pride rainbow-filled kid's book with a character who comes out as a unicorn, presumably symbolizing coming out as gay or transgender."

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
