Tucker Carlson: Bubba the Love Sponge misogynistic comments spark call for boycott

Tucker Carlson with a mic

On Sunday night Fox News Host Tucker Carlson responded to off-color remarks he made while on the Bubba-The-Love-Sponge show a decade ago.

The radio interview transcriptions were published by Media Matters for America, a liberal-leaning nonprofit group that monitors politically conservative media.

Carlson, who defended his track record in a tweet, said he wouldn't give the "usual ritual contrition" after his previous comments about women surfaced.

"Anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why", he said in his statement.

"If you're talking to a feminist", he said, "and she's given you, 'Well, men really need to be more sensitive, ' no, actually, men don't need to be more sensitive".

Carlson also said if Hillary Clinton "could castrate you, she would", and "thereby she gets not a single vote from any white male". You just need to be quiet and kind of do what you're told and lighten up a little bit. But perhaps most disturbing, Carlson, 49 and a father of four, appeared to condone statutory rape of both girls and boys and admitted he "would love" a "scenario" in which two underaged girls "explore" each others' bodies. Carlson also suggested underage marriage is not as serious as forcible rape and called rape-shield laws "totally unfair".

The audio included clips of Carlson criticizing high profile women in politics, media and popular culture. What do you mean in accessory? He's not in prison for polygamy, he's in prison for child rape.

Trump plans to ask for another $8.6B to fund border wall

Arizona Zoo Says Jaguar That Attacked Woman Won’t Be Put Down
Adam Wilkerson said he was at the zoo with his family when someone came running around the corner yelling for help. The woman, who is in her 30s , was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive, CNN affiliate KPHO reported .

He's not accused of touching anybody; he is accused of facilitating a marriage between a 16-year-old girl and a 27-year-old man. He once said, "I love women, but they're extremely primitive, they're basic, they're not that hard to understand".

In September 2006, just months after Jeffs had been added to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Top Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, Carlson slammed the criminal charges, calling them "bullsh-". He's like got some weird religious call where he thinks it's okay to, you know, marry underage girls, but he didn't do it.

Those on the right saw this as an attack on Carlson because of his status as a host on Fox News and one of the leading voices on the right.

"Tucker Carlson is a unsafe misogynist".

"Look, just to make it absolutely clear".

The reaction to Tucker Carlson's comments is fierce.

Seeing as Fox News has seemingly served as a mouthpiece for Donald Trump, it seems fitting that one of his sons would defend one of its network's hosts.
