Tucker Carlson Loses 3 More Sponsors After White Supremacy Comments

Tucker Carlson went on a long diatribe on Tuesday evening about white supremacy and how in his mind, it doesn’t exist. The comments were met with immediate condemnation and Carlson announced he was going on vacation at the end of his Wednesday show.

The Fox News host has faced this kind of controversy before. In 2018, Carlson claimed that immigrants make the country “dirtier”. The backlash from those comments led to Carlson losing over 20 show sponsors. Following the white supremacy comments, 3 more companies have announced they will no longer advertise on the prime time show.

Meal planning service, Hello Fresh, was the first to reveal they will no longer place ads on the show. According to the company, the ad, “was placed through a remnant inventory advertising purchase. This remainder buy is now complete and the ad is no longer running.”

Swiss food company Nestle had been running ads on the show for skin product, Proactiv, which they own. Nestle told The Hollywood Reporter, “Nestle does not currently advertise on Tucker Carlson Tonight nor do we have any plans to purchase ads on the show in the future.”

The latest company to remove ads is seafood chain, Long John Silvers. Angelo Carusone from Media Matters, tweeted, “CONFIRMED: Long John Silver will no longer advertise on Fox News. In 2018, Long John Silver ran ads on Fox almost every day; they advertised heavily for the first portion of 2019. In April declined to renew contract and to avoid Fox News going forward. Today they confirmed to me.”

Carlson will be returning to the network on August 19th.
